Hunter Shipwreck 1920

Skye Research

Seven survivors, 6 crew and the Captain.

15 May 1920 in an article in the Morning Oregonian of Portland, Oregon it stated that: The crew of the tug Hunter of Grays Harbor was brought here last night by Captain Erick Arntsen of the Phyllis from San Francisco, which went to the rescue for the tug, which was foundering just south of the Umatilla lightship. The Phyllis got a line on the tug and attempted to tow her but the Hunter filled so fast that this was found impossible to do. There were six men in the crew of the tug, which was-bound for the sound.
