Cuba (Propeller), C71153, aground, 1 Aug 1882
- Full Text
A RICH CARGO RUINED.
It is learned that the cargo of the Canadian propeller CUBA, which sprung a leak on Lake Ontario and was run aground at Charlotte to save her, was most all consigned to Chicago firms. The loss on cargo is $35,000 to $40,000. The propeller has been taken to Toronto for docking and repairs.
When Captain Corquodale decided to run the CUBA into port at Charlotte it was thought that her leak could be caulked and the journey to Toronto be continued. But investigation showed that it was necessary to keep the pumps at work and grond her to prevent her from sinking. There were several feet of water in the hold, and the cargo was damaged.
