The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
William Taylor (Yacht), 1 May 1858

Full Text

A NEW YACHT. - A new yacht is just being finished by Charles Beck, which is intended to beat anything in the way of sailing on any of the lakes. She is eighteen feet in length, five feet six inches beam, and twenty inches deep. She is to be sloop rigged, and carries fifty yards of canvas. She is to be named after the Chief Engineer of the Fire Department, William Taylor. The gentlemen who gave such a general challenge to sailing vessels last year, can now have an opportunity, we presume, to renew their banter. She is built for, and is the property of Dr. Lake, proprietor of the boat marquee, Canada Dock, near the foot of Erie Street.
