Turret Court (Propeller), C106608, collision, 22 Jul 1903

Full Text

The propeller WAVERLY is at the bottom of Lake Huron as the result of a collision yesterday with the propeller TURRET COURT, five miles below Harbor Beach. The WAVERLY's crew escaped to the schooner CROSTHWAITE, which the WAVERLY had in tow. The steamers were bound up the lake, and each had a barge in tow. It is said the wheel chains of the TURRET COURT parted when she was near the WAVERLY and caused the boats to come together. The WAVERLY is of the Cleveland Gilchrist fleet of the old style, having been built in 1874. She was insured for $25,000 through Worthington & Sill of Buffalo. The crew of the lost boat arrived at Port Huron last night on their way to Cleveland, but refused to talk of the accident.
