Kate Darley (Schooner), U14034, gale damage, 1 Nov 1877
- Full Text
The bark KATE DARLEY, bound from Escanaba to St. Jospeh with iron ore, sought shelter in the harbor. Her officers report that the vessel shipped several heavy seas during the previous night , and narrowly escaped
foundering. Her bulwarks had to knocked away to free the main deck of water. Another sea, in their opinion, would have sunk the craft. The vessel lost its small boat and foregaff.
