Final Voyage


The Grace A. Channon was lost on August 2, 1877, when the salvage ship the Favorite hit her on her port side. In the accident, the seven-year-old son of the co-owner, Alexander Grahm, of Chicgao, was lost. She was captained by Simon N. Murray at the time of her loss.
Final Voyage


The wreck of the Grace Channon today sits in 200 feet of water on a sandy bottom on an even keel, totally intact. The cabin is still intact, which you do not often find, meaning that the ship sank slowly allowing air to escape. The masts are broken, and rigging is scattered all over the deck.
