Savannah, GA Schooner CHARLES K SCHULL Sinking, Aug 1908


Capitals and Seven Men Taken From Leaking Vessel.

Savannah, Ga., Aug. 2.---Capt. B. Peckworth and seven of the crew of the schooner Charles K. Schull, bound from Philadelphia for Charleston with 2,000 tons of coal, arrived here this morning aboard the steamer Kansas City, from New York. The Schull was struck by the West Indian storm Thursday. She began leaking badly and the men took to the pumps. Portions of her forerigging were carried away.

Saturday morning after the men had been 60 hours at the pumps, they were rescued. They left the Schull anchored seven miles from Cape Lookout light, but she has probably gone down by now.

The Kansas City spoke the Shears, from New Haven. She was dismantled but refused aid.
