Sitka (Propeller), U116174, aground, 4 Oct 1904
- Full Text
The storm of yesterday on Lake Superior completed the destruction of the propeller SITKA, stranded on Big Sable Point. The seas are washing over the craft, and it is believed she will be entirely broken to pieces when the wreckers are able to get at her after the storm. The crew left the boat before before the heavy storm broke.
