Service History

The wooden hull two masted schooner Lavinda was built in Allegan, Michigan by St. German in 1863. The Board Of Lake Underwriters valued the vessel at $4,500 and rated her B1.

April 1869: Schooners Lavinda and Mary Booth were damaged by collision on Lake Michigan.

1873: Received new rigging.

June 1874: Schooners Lavinda and Tuscola collided near Calumet with a loss of $100.

October 1875: Lavinda went ashore north of the piers at Ludington.

1881: The Racine lifesaving crew along with the tug H. Wetzel towed the Lavinda into the harbor after she hit the south pier and became waterlogged.
Final Voyage

Sunk and abandoned in the Kinnickinnic River boneyard by owner Patrick Kearns.
"The small schooner Lavinda lies in a sunken condition in the Kinnicinnic branch of the river, her owner evidently paying little or no attention to the old craft." Door County Advocate January 9, 1897
Today

The remains of the schooner Lavinda were probably removed from the boneyard in the Kinnicinnic River.
