Final Voyage


"The scow Hunting Boy, owned by Capt. E.B. Graham, of Fish Creek, was driven ashore between the harbor piers at the lake end of the canal (Sturgeon Bay), during the heavy storm of last week, and will prove a total loss. The unlucky craft has been stripped of sails, & ect, and no effort will be made to get her off. The vessel is nearly filled with sand." Wreck Blown Up. Capt. E.B. graham's old scow, the Hunting Boy, which was wrecked near the canal a year ago last fall, was recently blown up by a charge of dynamite in order to get it out of the way. The wreck was lodged inside the harbor piers and interfered with the proposed docking operations." The Last Document Surrendered Milwaukee, 12/30/1878: "Total Loss"
