Description
Full Text

The Parry Sound Star gives a long account of the finding of the Waubuno. The hull lies up in a small bay in eleven feet of water. Ninety-four feet of the vessel shows about two feet out, the rest is more than one foot under. The whole of the starboard bottom is completely destroyed. The port side and keel as far as can be seen have not a scratch . The engines and boiler can not be in her as the hull has floated at least four miles from where the wreckage was picked up last fall. It is difficult to imagine how the hull floated to the place where it now lies. The bottom as far as can be seen is quite sound.
