Menomonie Marine. On its return trip to the harbor on Wednesday afternoon from the Menekaune bar the Larson dredge Dormer No. 2 broke the rudder post when the boat, which was loaded to capacity, grounded on the bar. Ernest Angwall, master of the dredge, was at the wheel when the boat struck the rudder on an exceptionally shallow place of the bar. Distress signals were sounded which were answered by the steam fishing tug Martin Treu of the Seidl fishing fleet. Capt. Nels Nelson of the tug towed the dredge into the river where it was tied to the Sawyer Goodman dock. Later in the evening the steam tug Beaver towed the boat to its destination at the dock of the Below Lumber company, where it was being unloaded today. Capt. Ernest Angwall of the dredge will dock at the Angwall shipyard immediately after it has been unloaded, where repairs will be made. The dredge has been in need of a larger rudder for some time. It is thought that a larger one will be added while the boat is in dry dock.
