Historical Perspectives
-  Dave Cook
On April 19, 1983, the unloading boom on the George A. Stinson collapsed while the ship was unloading in the midst of a snow squall at Zug Island. The king pin on top of the dog house sheared off causing the hydraulic ram to fall on the spar deck and the boom to collapse. The resulting damage was extensive, and while there were crew members in the immediate vicinity, fortunately no one was injured.
