Final Voyage


The schooner Japan was wrecked at Andrew Nelson's pier in Garret Bay, the innermost part of Hedgehog Harbor, during the big blow of Monday (10/21/1885) and is a total loss. She was loading wood when the blow came up, and being unable to get under way. The heavy seas made her strike bottom and go to pieces. She had about one hundred and twenty cords of wood on board when the disaster happened.
