The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Corinthian (Schooner), gale damage, 18 Jun 1866

Full Text

During the late terrible storm on Lake Erie the schr. CORINTHIAN, owned in this city by Capt. Kelly, and commanded by Capt. Mann, was caught in the gale off Long Point on the 18th. She was roughly handled, and had it not been for her excellent seagoing qualities would now have been elsewhere. The heavy seas made clean breaches over her, carrying away her mainsail, main boom, stanchion, bulwarks, are more or less gone. She reached Buffalo on the 19th, where she delivered her cargo of grain in as dry a condition as when received on board.
