Home (Scow), aground, 17 Nov 1876
- Full Text
The schr. HOME, which was reported yesterday as having gone on the beach at Racine, will probably prove a total wreck. Nothing could be done for the vessel on Tuesday owing to the strong gale blowing, and the heavy breakers, which rolled over her caused her to lose nearly all of her cargo and almost completed the wrecking of the vessel, so much so that it is not thought that any effort will be made to rescue her. It is understood that the vessel was not insured.

WRECK OF THE SCOW HOME. THE CREW SAFE. -- The scow HOME, lumber laden and bound this way, was caught in the gale yesterday morning and went ashore at Racine about 4 o'clock. When the steamer CHICAGO passed, her deck load was gone, also her yards and most of her rigging, and she also had a large hole stove in her stern. The crew were all safe and were engaged in taking away what they could out of her cabin. The beach was strewn with her lumber, and it is supposed, considering the roughness of the lake during all day yesterday and last night, that there is not much left of her by this time. --- Inter-Ocean.
