The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
William Fiske (Schooner), aground, 1 Sep 1872

Full Text

The party which left here two weeks since for Georgian Bay to get off the schooner W. FISKE as reported at that time, have returned to this port. They succeeded in moving the vessel 12 feet and have now got her located with her bows in 6 1/2 feet of water and her stern in 6 feet. At this juncture, for some reasons unexplained, they were obliged to return here without the entire outfit of the vessel. Eventually she will undoubtedly be got off and the recent expedition must not be considered a failure.
