Sardinian (Schooner), aground, 1865
- Full Text
The schooner SARDINIAN, which was driven against the Island in our harbor last fall, and lost at the time a large portion of her cargo of peas, has been on the Dry Dock of George Goble during the season, and undergone thorough repairs. She will be launched tomorrow morning at 8 o'clock. The work on her amounts virtually to a rebuilding, and she will take to her native element as good as new.

Launch of the SARDINIAN. - At 9 o'clock this morning another vessel - the third from this yard this season - was launched from the yard of Messrs. Goble & Macfarlane, the affair proving in every way a success. A goodly number of people witnessed the launch, and the SARDINIAN found her element amid their cheers. She is a trim built little schooner, and has the marks of a staunch craft.
She is owned by Captains Tuttle and Richardson, and will be commanded by the former. Her dimensions are as follows: 95 feet keel; 104 feet over all; 24 1/2 feet beam; registers 225 tons, new measurement , and will carry 11,000 bushels of grain. Good luck to the gallant little SARDINIAN, and her commander, say we!
No one port, to say nothing of shipyards on the lakes, has built as many vessels this year as Messrs. Goble & Macfarlane, and they deserve credit for their enterprise.
