Full Text

The boat launch took place last Saturday as advertised. A large crowd was present to witness the scene; the time had been set at 1 o’clock, and at the exact time the word was given by L.M. Read, the master builder. When the word was given the blow was struck, and the slender cord which held the boat on land severed, and the beautiful schooner Florence Seaton glided swiftly down the ways into the water. The rudder it seems had not been properly stayed, and when the vessel struck the water it was under such headway as to nearly upset the rudder and caused some damage to it.
