EQUATOR Propeller, ashore at North Manitou, and total loss.
      Marine Disasters on the Western
      Lakes during 1869, Capt. J.W. Hall



      Ashore on Lake Michigan - The Milwaukee Sentinel contains the following additional list of vessels ashore:
      Capt. Chas. Johnson of the schr. W.J. WHALING saw a propeller painted a dark color, ashore close to the wood dock on the east side of the North Manitou Island. Seas were breaking over her aft, compelling the crew to seek shelter in the forward part of the boat. The propeller in question is believed to be the EQUATOR, of the Belle City Line, upward bound. She cleared from Buffalo on the 11th, and is reported as having passed Detroit on the 13th, but at last accounts had not reached her destination, Racine.
