Description
Full Text

Sandusky, June 17 - The tug GEORGE PANKRANTZ sunk at Lorain in 1913, but recently raised, arrived here today in tow of the SEAWING to undergo repairs. It was all her crew could do to keep her afloat. Her pumps were kept going constantly from the time she left Lorain until she reached her destination.
      In commission again, the PANKRANTZ will be used by the Allery Dredge Co. of Detroit, the concern that owns her, to tow barges between Detroit and Cleveland.
