September 2, 1917 [LAT]: “Santa Barbara. Captain C. Fink of the supply boat Seafarer, has come in from Santa Cruz Island with news of the loss of two fishing boats, the Halfhill, owned by the Halfhill Canning Company of Long Beach, and a Japanese boat, each valued at $4000. The boats ran onto the submerged rocks at the east end of Santa Cruz Island, near Smuggler’s Cove, while fishing. There is a bare possibility that the Halfhill may be pulled from the rocks, though her position is perilous. The other boat has already been pounded to pieces.”
