The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Caroline E. Bailey (Schooner), aground, 1 Jul 1867

Full Text

The schooner CAROLINE BAILEY missed the harbor at Grand Haven during Saturday
night and ran ashore south of the pier. The weather being fine, she was pulled off by the tug MIRANDA, but had the misfortune to strike a stone near the pier while being brought in, which knocked a hole in her bottom. With the aid of the tug's pumps she was kept free of water until she could be placed in drydock, where her injuries are now being repaired. Had it not been for these drydocks her captain would have been obliged to run her into shoal water and send for a steam pump and tug to take her to Milwaukee or Chicago.
