Sloop Unqua ~ 15 August 1882

Annual Report of the Operations of the United States Life-Saving Service for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1882:

The sloop Unqua, of Augustine, Florida, broke anchor in Bogue Sound and came ashore at Ft. Macon where the vessel was torn apart by waves. She had already been saved earlier this year off Bodie Island in an attempt to enter Oregon Inlet, and again in early November after parting her mooring in Roanoke Sound.
