The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Charlie Hibbard (Schooner), U4361, gale damage, 30 Aug 1867

Full Text

The schr. CHARLEY HIBBARD, lumber laden, has arrived at this place in a seriously damaged condition, and has been compelled to lay up for repairs. It appears that while on her passage down, she encountered a squall which carried away her mainsail, main and staysail booms, and damaged her main-mast to such a extent that it will have to be replaced by a new one. The vessel is undergoing repairs at the hands of Miller Bros., who will make her ready for business again in a short time. - Chicago Times.
