The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Remora (Propeller), collision, 28 Mar 1890


Description
Full Text

The river passenger steamers REMORA and OSSIFRAGE collided in the stream at Detroit, on Wednesday. The damage is comparitively trifling. The REMORA's bow is crushed for 6 inches deep below the guards, and the OSSIFRAGE's guard rail is split at the point of contact and a deck stanchion is broken. An interesting question as to which boat had the right of way arises, as both boats claim it.
