The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Tim Baker (Schooner), aground, 1 Oct 1887

Full Text

Bay City.---The barge TIM BAKER, while coming down Saginaw Bay under sail on Tuesday night, deviated from her course and ran hard aground in Toboco Bay, on the west shore, about six miles from the mouth of the river. The tugs RUMAGE and SARAH SMITH were sent to her relief and after working fourteen hours succeeded in freeing her. She arrived in Bay City and went into drydock. She was leaking, but was not badly damaged. It is an exceedingly difficult thing to reach Saginaw River in thick weather, as the channel in the Bay for some distance is very narrow.
