Three Brothers (Schooner), U24987, collision, 24 Jun 1904

Full Text

What might have been a serious accident was narrowly averted at the St. Clair Rapids yesterday by the skillful work of the pilots of several vessels which got in a mix-up at that point. The propellers CITY OF ALPENA; LUZON; FREDERICK WELLS; MASABA and FAUSTIN, the latter towing the schooner THREE BROTHERS, became tangled up, but all escaped injury except the THREE BROTHERS which was so badly damaged as to necessitate her going into drydock.
