Wreck of the Cottoneva
Wreck of the Cottoneva
Feb.10, 1937, winds over 75 MPH 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 buoy. The
Cottoneva was constructed in 1917, and originally
christened the "Frank D. Stout". Only the propeller
remains.
