This steel ship was an Eastern Line Steamship. It was traveling from Portland, headed for New York, when a Northeast blizzard occurred on January 14, 1934. It ran into Corwin rock some four miles off shore, and punctured a hole in the hull. It came ashore at Prout's Neck where the crew was saved as they were removed by the Coast Guard. The ship was carrying bolts of woolen cloth as part of the cargo.Show Details
