Windsor (Schooner), collision, 3 May 1883

Full Text

On May 2nd. at 10p.m., the Schooner LOOKOUT, Capt. John Maloney, ran on the Southeast point of Rock Island, and was gotten off by throwing overboard her deckload of ties, and running an anchor, at 7 a.m. the next morning. The anchor was shipped, and the vessel got under way, and made for Manitowoc Bay, where she collided with the Schooner WINDSOR, at anchor, carrying away the jibboom and headgear of the latter, and damaging her own mizzensail so badly as to render it useless. Her rudder and keel were so badly damaged when she ran aground that she was rendered almost unmanageable, hence the collision. A Tug was telegraphed for from Chicago, and the Tug G.W. GARDNER towed her to Chicago, where she arrived on the 6th.inst., and was placed in the Chicago Drydock Company's dock, where she is undergoing repairs.--Chicago Report.
