The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Royal Tar (Schooner), dismasted, 1846

Full Text

We learn from the Advertiser of yesterday morning, that the schooner Missouri, freighted with wheat, downward bound, is ashore at Braddock's Point, a few miles west of the mouth of the Genesee.
      The Western, bound up, with salt, is also ashore at Irondequoit. The schrs. Albany, Wiman and Webster are also reported ashore near the mouth of Genesee. The Canadian schr. Royal Tar was towed in dismasted, on Saturday, by the steamboat Rochester. She was found lying at anchor at Sodus in this disabled state.
A small Canadian vessel is ashore at Little Sodus. She was carried so far ashore by the waves that the crew were able to step from the vessel to the ground.
The wind is again blowing heavily, from the north-west this morning. The weather is clear, however, so we do not apprehend any further damage, except to the grounded vessels. They will probably suffer severely. A Canadian vessel, without cargo, attempting to enter the harbor this morning, was blown ashore on the rocks a few feet from the spot where the
Grampus lies.*
