The schooner SWALLOW, the first vessel to go ashore this year, has come out of dry dock at Detroit almost a new boat, so claimed. She has received , among other repairs, a new deck and deck frame, two new keelsons, planks where required, besides a thorough refastening and calking. Her repairs have cost upwards of $6,000, and she is expected to rate A 2.
