2-13 - Historical Perspective -
Brent Michaels & Jon Paul Michaels- The 381 foot 4671 ton Steamer Ralph Budd owned by the Great Lakes Transit Co. of Buffalo, NY departed Duluth on the night of May 14, 1929 loaded with a mixed cargo of grain, flour, shingles, and refrigerated goods. Under the command of Capt Dugland McLoud of Buffalo the Ralph Budd encountered a fierce spring storm off Keweenaw Point and at about 10:30 p.m. on May 15th grounded on Saltese Point near Eagle Harbor. The crew of 31 were rescued by the Eagle Harbor Coast Guard the next day. The ship was finally salvaged by Tom Reid of Sarnia Ontario, rebuilt as a bulk freighter and continued to sail for Upper Lakes until the end of the 1963 season as L. A. Mc Corquodale. An interesting side note is that the Ralph Budd was/ is referred to as the Butter Boat Wreck due to the vast amount of butter that floated ashore.
