Pierrepont (Schooner), aground, 22 May 1875

Full Text

The schr. PIERREPONT which went ashore recently at Middle bass Island, loaded with lumber has been got off and arrived at Cleveland Thursday in tow of the wrecking tug MAGNET. The captain of the MAGNET states that he arrived at the wreck about 9:00 Wednesday morning and after about 2 hours of pulling got the vessel off. The hull of the PIERREPONT is in a very bad condition, and had it not been for the lumber with which she was loaded, she could not have been towed to Cleveland. Her hull is badly wrenched, and leaks almost at every joint. The vessel will probably go into drydock to be tightened sufficiently to float her after she is unloaded when she will again go into drydock and be thoroughly overhauled.
