Fort Bragg Shipping News December 13th 1916

The following snippets were gleaned from the Advocate:

The steamer Arctic sailed for San Francisco Saturday afternoon with a full cargo of lumber.”

The Arctic was a wooden steam schooner built in 1901 by H.R. Reed at Bay City, Oregon for J.S. Kimball of San Francisco. She was used for the coastal lumber trade, was 392 tons, 145 x 32 x 11 feet with a single deck. She had a 350 h.p. triple expansion (3 – Cylinder) engine and 325, 000 board foot capacity. Other owners of the Arctic were Hammond Lumber Company; sold in 1908 to National Steamship Company and sold again in 1919 to Union Lumber Company. The Arctic wrecked at Point Arena on July 5th, 1922.

The second snippet:

The steamer Noyo towed the three-masted schooner Allen A. several miles offshore and started her on her voyage to Honolulu. She had about 400,000 feet of lumber, ties and posts aboard.”

The Noyo in question was likely the second (of four) of that name.

Of the Allen A., sadly, I can find no trace.
