Schooner Raymond T. Maull ~ 21 March 1906

Annual Report of the Operations of the United States Life-Saving Service for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1906:

Became water-logged when 10 miles off the coast, drifted to shore and foundered within ½ mile of Gull Shoal life-saving station, where she was discovered by a surfman at 2.30 a.m. The adjacent stations wee at once informed of the casualty by telephone, and the life savers assembled at the wreck, launched a boat successfully through a high-running surf, and pulled to the rescue of the imperiled sailors. The entire crew, 7 in all, were landed by the surfmen without mishap and conveyed with their effects by team to the Chicamacomico station, where they were succored until able to depart for their homes. The schooner was a total loss.
