Gesine (Schooner), aground, 7 Nov 1853


Description
Full Text

The Manitowoc Herald of the 12th. inst., says that the new schooner GESINE, built in that town last winter, went ashore about half a mile north of the pier during the very severe storm on Monday night. The only loss it seems possible that the owners will sustain is the expense to get her off. The heavy sea from the south west prevented the use of jack screws, and the plan of heaving her of by means of an anchor was substituted. She is now afloat.
