The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Arabia (Propeller), U105254, aground, 20 Oct 1905

Full Text

The steamer ARABIA, which stuck on sunken piles in the Blackwell Canal last week during the blow, was floated off this morning when the water rose. She seems to have sustained no damage, but will be carefully examined today. The water has risen three feet and the present gale is sending it higher each hour.
