The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
George (Schooner), collision, 31 May 1887

Full Text

The Tug CASTLE, with the schooner WILLIAM HOME, PENOKEE and S.L. WATSON, and the tug PORTER with the schooner GEORGE in tow, met in the St. Clair Flats canal Tuesday night. The GEORGE had her canvas up, and in passing the PENOKEE she took a sheer, crashing into the latter, breaking seventeen stanchions, bursting the plank sheer and one plank below the plank sheer, cut the yawl boat in two and carried away the mizzen rigging. The damage to the GEORGE has not been learned, at this writing, but it is thought to be slight. The PENOKEE is loaded with iron ore for Cleveland, and will tow there without making more repairs than are absolutely necessary.
