Superior (Propeller), aground, 11 May 1881


Description
Full Text

Last Wednesday, during the fog, the steambarge SUPERIOR ran ashore at the north end of North Manitou Island. She was towing the schooners SANDUSKY and ESCANABA at the time, and the SANDUSKY ran into her, damaging her stern to some extent. The SANDUSKY then grounded herself, but got off all right. To effect the release of the SUPERIOR, a quantity of her coal cargo had to be thrown overboard. The ESCANABA escaped the beach altogether. All three craft are now in Chicago.
