The shipyard presented quite an animated appearance Saturday morning when the following boats were tied up there and occupying the boxes: Edward Buckley, Frank Woods, Jay C. Morse, Duncan City, Ida Corning, Peshtigo reef light ship, Elsa M., Margaret and Arthur.
Nothing has been done toward releasing the schooner Iver Lawson, ashore at Horseshoe bay, since operations were discontinued last summer. The vessel is in practically the same condition, having apparently suffered no particular damage from the wind, waves or weather.
The steamer Frank Woods, Capt. Coates, was released from the boxes Saturday forenoon, but owing to a leak around the stern-pipe had to be raised again, but as the Buckley had in the meantime been docked the Woods did not get on again until Monday, when the leak was stopped, and she left for Saugatuck, Mich., on Tuesday.
The steambarge Edward Buckley, Capt. Gnewuch, was docked at the shipyard Saturday for her regular annual searching and overhauling. This barge is kept in A1 shape all the time. She started for Boyne City Tuesday morning, but on getting into the lake found too much wind and sea, and came back again, where she lay until evening.
