"Another grounding called for the assistance of the C.M. CHARNLEY, this time for the schooner RED, WHITE & BLUE, on Whaleback Reef. She was in a dangerous position, a northwest gale pounding her hard on the rocks. Her cargo was jettisoned, but the CHARNLEY was unable to work her off the reef. On October 17, 1895, the CHARNLEY returned with a 12 inch pump from Escanaba. After working two days on the schooner, she was abandoned, her decks having parted and her hull badly twisted. The CHARNLEY removed everything of value off the hull.
