Description
Full Text

The safe navigation along the north shore of Lake Huron, in reality, it is very
dangerous for vessels, because the coast abounds in islands, and rocks, above
and under water. Mr. Thompson's steamboat PENETANGUISHENE running from the
island of St. Joseph to Penetanguishene last fall when 80 to 100 miles northwest from Penetanguishene struck a rock and immediately filled and sunk. From the mouth of the Saugeen to Saginaw Bay the lake is wide and deep and there are neither islands or rocks to obstruct the passage. (part extracted)
