Full Text

A small illustration of another vessel built and operated under the direction of Mr. Eugene McFall, the side-wheel steamer ARROW, is presented herewith. The ARROW was also built by the Detroit Ship Building Co, and has been in operation on a regular route between Sandusky and the islands of Lake Erie since 1895. She is 176 feet over all, 51 feet over guards, 28 feet hull beam, and 9 ½ feet depth. The hull is of steel and wheels are of the feathering type operated by a beam engine of the W. & A. Fletcher Co. make. There is one boiler fitted with Howden hot draft. The ARROW is allowed 900 excursionists. Her cabins are nicely fitted in mahogany, and with some 150 electric lights, a search light and all the comforts for passengers that are provided on the best of the big steamers. She is also a favorite with the tourists that visit Lake Erie summer resorts.
