The steel steamer GEORGETOWN, which was built by the Union Dry Dock Co. of Buffalo for the Atlantic Coast Lumber Co., represented by J.L. Crosthwaite of Buffalo, was launched Saturday afternoon. She will start for the coast in a few days. A duplicate vessel, the WACCAMAW, built by the Craig Ship Building Co. of Toledo, O., left the lakes only a week or two ago. These vessels will enter the coast lumber trade and will work in conjunction with the Georgetown & Western Railroad of North Carolina. The GEORGETOWN is 258 ft. long, 40 ft. beam and has a molded depth of 18 ft. 3 in. She is fitted with triple expansion engines and Scotch boilers, with everything modern in the way of auxiliary machinery, and is in hull construction suited to the coast trade.
