Viking (Sloop), aground, 1 Jul 1893


Description
Full Text

The small Canadian sloop VIKING, loaded with stave bolts, got too far down the river in trying to make this port and went on the bottom at the Dumping Grounds. The tug HEBARD pulled her off, the lifesaving crew carrying the line to the stranded sloop. It was a cheap wrecking bill, the towing job costing $5.
