On the northwest side of Pilot Island is a spot where three wrecks stranded in nearly the same spot. The Forest was the first, she broke up and was abandoned as a total loss. The cabins were swept away and part of her outfit was salvaged. A year later she was joined by the J.E.Gilmore and the A.P. Nichols.
Final Voyage


"The scow Forest is still high and dry on Pilot Island, and likely to remain there for the present at least. The captain and owner was here this week trying to charter the scow Becker to carry slabs from Nama to Chicago until the Forest can be got afloat." "The scow Forest has gone ashore on Pilot Island and is a total wreck. She was a small craft and has been in service for about twenty-three years." --From the Wisconsin Historical Society Maritime Preservation and Archaeology Files
