Final Voyage

"The Mystic, a deck stay-sail schooner, had been leased by her skipper Captain Schuenemann to get a load of Christmas trees for Chicago at Little Bay do Noc. But alas, she never cleared Death's Door ... the rocks of Pilot Island claimed her. It was a sad sight to witness as this attractive vessel with a green hull and white bulwarks was pounded to bits by the easterly gales. Within a few weeks, the craft's after end was so badly splinterd that her owners stripped her rigging and abandoned her. $2500 of insurance was collected from Lloyd's as a result of this disaster."
