Final Voyage


"The Pride, lying at anchor in Egg harbor, was poised on a northwesterly heading when a fierce northeast gale struck. The vessel attempted to swing around her anchor to face the storm, but she was too slow and was caught broadside by a wave which overturned her. So violent was the capsizing that her masts actually became inbedded in the mud bottom. The captain managed to escape unharmed, but his son was trapped and drowned in the cabin. Efforts by the Sturgeon Bay Lifesaving Service to recover his body were unsuccessful." The Pride was later salvaged by Leathem and Smith who took her to Sturgeon Bay and sank her at the south end of Dunlap Reef.
