WRECK OF THE COTTONEVA

On Feb. 10, 1937, winds over 74 M.P.H. caused the 190 foot steam schooner "Cottoneva" to run aground at Battle Rock. It was in port loading lumber. The captain and all 26 seamen were rescued by the Coast Guard crew using a breeches body. The Cottoneva was constructed in 1917, and originally christened the "Frank D. Stout." Only the propeller remains.
