Briton (Propeller), U3493, aground, 1 Sep 1891
- Full Text
The steamer BRITON got into the Cleveland, dry-dock yesterday afternoon. Upon examination it was found that the rocks of Gull Island Reef had punched quite a hole in her bottom, well forward on the port side, and that several plates on the starboard side of the bottom had been slightly bent. The plates will be taken off and rolled again. Four new plates will be necessary on the port side. A few rivets were removed amidships under the forward compartment to allow the water to run off. A large force of men will be kept at work day and night, and the steamer will probably leave the dock on Tuesday.
