Wawanosh (Schooner), 26 Sep 1873

Full Text

The new schooner WAWANOSH built during the past summer at Sarnia, Ontario, is almost ready to be launched. She is painted black with the name on the stern in white letters. Her "sonorous" name is Indian-Chippewa and was originally the name of the father of the present chief of the Indian tribe that inhabits the reservation south of Sarnia, She has her spars up and will be launched with her canvas all on.

The new three master WAWANOSH did not launch at the appointed time, nor is it likely she will go off for some time to come. The ways under her did not have enough pitch and she stuck.

      The WAWANOSH has at last been launched and now lies moored to one of the Sarnia wharves. She has a bad "list to port".
