Astoria, OR Tug SEA EAGLE Wreck, Dec 1921

Hat Among Wreckage

Name of J. Doyle, Member of Sea Eagle’s Crew, On Inside.

Astoria, Or., Dec. 1.-(Special)-Ed Wiseman of Clatsop Plains, reported today that among the articles from the missing tug Sea Eagle found on the ocean beach was a hat containing the name of J. Doyle, who was listed as a deckhand on the craft. The hat was a No. 7 and had been sold by a Portland store. Wiseman also recovered six life preservers marked Sea Eagle, two cans of hard tack, a locker and two oars, a quantity of redwood decking, five ship’s doors, several window frames, a flagstaff and a woven rope fender.

Wiseman gets his wood from the beach and also digs clams, so is patrolling the beach every day. He says the most of the wreckage was picked up about a week ago.
