Marine Disasters on the Western
Lakes during 1871, Capt. J.W. Hall
. . . . .
The schooner KANTER with a cargo of wheat from Port Huron to Buffalo, returned to Detroit Friday morning in a leaky condition. When about five miles below Bar Point she rolled over on her side losing a considerable portion of her deck load into the lake. It was discovered that she had sprung a leak and had three feet of water in her hold. The pumps were immediately manned and the vessel was saved from disaster by the arrival of the tug ECLIPSE.
