F. J. King (Schooner), U9299, 2 Dec 1869
- Full Text
Schooner F. J. KING. -- The last trip of this vessel was to a Lake Ontario port. On her arrival, down, at Port Colborne, it was ascertained that she was a trifle too long to pass the locks in the Welland Canal, and corners of her stern were cut off. During the winter it is intended, we believe, to give her a round stern so as to make a canal vessel of her. The KING is owned at this port, and is one of the staunchest vessels afloat.
