Scotia (Barge), U115167, aground, 11 May 1918
- Full Text
Sandusky, May 11 - The barge SCOTIA, driven by a gale, dragged anchor and went aground about 100 feet off the south shore of Kelleys Island late last night while waiting in Lake Erie for the stmr. CHARLES BRADLEY to pick her up.
Life savers from the coast guard stationed at Marblehead returned last evening, saying she is resting easy with her crew aboard and in no danger, but that she is on so hard that tugs will have to pull her off. She appears to be undamaged.
