In fog, the
vessel came ashore. Ordering the motors "full astern" Captain
and crew did all in their power to free the vessel from the rocks.
Losing power from the engines, it discovered that the hull was
holed, the crew was ordered to abandon the vessel. The CG 262
and the CG McClellan were brought down from San Francisco,
to assist in the salvage of her light cannon, rifles, searchlight,
and an assortment of instruments.
