Final Voyage

August 26, 1880: While enroute from Manitowoc to Milwaukee with a crew of five and a cargo of wood and coal, the schooner Hannah Etty sprung a leak, became waterlogged and capsized eight miles south of Sheboygan. The crew successfully abandoned the vessel, but due to being overloaded and poorly equipped yawl (missing and broken oars), they had to be picked up by the Sheboygan lifesaving crew. The vessel itself went ashore six miles south of Sheboygan and was reported to be breaking up on August 27, 1880.
