The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Antares (Schooner), U366, sunk, 1 May 1884

Full Text

The schr. ANTARES, wrecked in the storm two weeks ago, was built in 1852 at Cattaraugus, N.Y., by A. Stevens, and was therefore 31 years old. Her name has not appeared on the Lloyd's register since 1879, at which time she was marked "not insurable." It is a mystery how men could be found to risk their lives on the old tub.

      Schooner ANTARES, built 1852 at Cataraugus, N. Y. Sunk in the Ogden Canal, it is not likely she will be raised as she is (or was) the oldest vessel on the lakes.
