  History  
 
Gothro Phil25/11/2011Came to anchor 4 miles out and put up distress signals in a westerly gale, but it was soon apparent that help would not arrive in time. Slipped her anchor and was driven on a bar at Evergreen Point. Crew scrambled up rigging as she went down, but couldn't make it to shore. There were several ineffectual attempts by the Lifeasaving crew before her masts went by the board. Newspaper accounts stated that the LSS's gear was rotten and inadequate and that the schooner was overloaded.

The schooner had been bound Escanaba for St. Joseph with 675 tons of iron ore. Owned by Capt. A.P. Read. Master: Capt. P. W. Costello(d).
