Tourist (Sloop), aground, 1 Sep 1883

Full Text

The Oswego Times says:- about two o'clock the 24th. the lookout at the station made out a small Sloop trying to make the harbor. She made a failure of it and went ashore near the station. It turned out to be the TOURIST, of Pultneyville, owned here and known as the "Potato Bug" She had a cargo of fish, and was abreast of Sodus Point when the gale struck her. She could not get into the harbor and next tried Fair Haven with the same results and kept on for this port. She had lost some of her rigging and was partially disabled, which perhaps accounts for the difficulty in managing her. The Life Saving crew got a line around her spar and she is not pounding much and will not probably receive much damage. - Fair Haven Report (L.O.)
