Alert (Schooner), U105101, aground, 16 Sep 1897
- Full Text
St. Joseph, Mich., Sept. 16. -- The schooner ALERT was wrecked ten miles off this port today and now lies on a sand bar a total loss. Arthur Stone, a sailor, had three ribs broken, and Capt. Chas. Stone, master of the boat was also injured. The ALERT was bound here from Muskegon and became waterlogged in the northwest blow, soon after the canvas had been carried away. With the cabin under water, a sailor used his coat as a signal of distress and a tug responded to the signal and brought in the survivors tonight. The ALERT was an old boat and was owned in Chicago.
