Steamer Seabright ~ 18 September 1901

Annual Report of the Operations of the United States Life-Saving Service for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1902:

Grounded off entrance to Baldhead Creek, while towing a scow, and set signals for assistance. Surfmen went to her in the lifeboat and took the master to Southport, so that he might communicate with her owners. Then they returned to the steamer with provisions for the crew, the supply on board having become exhausted.
