The J. W. Hall Great Lakes Marine Scrapbook, April 1877.
NOTE:-- Obviously the vessel ashore at Port Dover could not have been the WAUCOMA ???
The schooner WACUSTA is lying at the foot of Lloyd Street, badly used up. Her sails, jibboom and anchors are gone and some of her seams open, having dragged her anchors from Long Point to nearly opposite Dunkirk, where the tug NOLTON picked her up and towed her into port last night. Hand pumps are at work, and there remains about two feet of water in her hold. -- Buffalo Commercial Advertiser, 5th.
