Major (Propeller), U76792, aground, 1 Jul 1906
- Full Text
The steamer MAJOR also reached port yesterday having been released from the sandbar near Mabeline (sic) Island by the tug CROSBY. The bow of the ship was out three feet, but after the sand beneath the bow had been washed away by the churning of the tug's propeller, the MAJOR was easily hauled off into deep water without injury.
