The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Comet (Propeller), aground, 1 Jun 1865

Full Text

The Green Bay (Michigan) Advocate says the steamer COMET, bound from Buffalo to that city, was driven ashore on the rocks at Washington Harbor, during the storm of Sunday night last, and in order to save her from pounding, Captain Gaylord ordered her scuttled. With the assistance of tugs and favorable winds she will undoubtedly be got off with little damage to the boat. She had a large quantity of merchandise on board, mostly in the hold, for merchants of Green Bay and vicinity, the greater part of which must be seriously damaged.
