October 26, 1906 [SBMP]: “The launch Pt. Firmin, Captain Short, brought word to this city yesterday of the wreck of the sloop Sealion on Santa Cruz Island. The vessel is a total loss, but the crew were all saved. The Sealion is owned by a Japanese company, and has been engaged in the abalone trade in the channel for some time past. Owing to defective ground tackle, she drifted onto the rocks at Dick’s Harbor during a heavy blow a day or so ago and broke up in short order.”
