JOHNSON, HATTIE Schooner, ashore at Point Au Pelee; lightered off.
      Marine Disasters on the Western
      Lakes during 1871, Capt. J.W. Hall

      . . . . .

      The damage sustained by the schooner HATTIE JOHNSON while being towed upon the Middle Ground in Point aux Pelee Passage by the tug WILCOX is more serious than was anticipated. The vessel is now in the drydock of Messrs. Wolf & Davidson's Shipyard. An examination of her bottom shows she loosened between 80 and 100 feet of garboard strake on the starboard side. Both the garboard strake and the assistant keelson were driven upward between two and three inches by the force of the concussion, when she struck. The keel was considerably broomed. The repairs will be between $400 and $500.
