Service History


The Planet was originally built as a side wheeler in 1855; she collided with a sail vessel on lake Michigan and rebuilt at Manitowoc in 1866. Finally, she was dismantled and made into a barge.
Final Voyage


"The barge Planet, owned by the Pestigo Lumber Co., became water-logged off the pier at Two Rivers, about two o'clock yesterday morning, and shortly after broke up. The craft was laden with 700,000 feet of lumber. The crew it is thought saved themselves; at least, none were reported as lost." 11/08/1872
