The Cranky Kahului -- October 27, 2015

San Francisco Call, 24-May-1895.
William A Coulter did many maritime drawings for the newspaper.   

The "cranky" steamer Kahului has discharged her sugar at the refinery, completing the task without tipping over.  When she came into port she seemed to be scudding along on her port beam ends.  She still had the list when she went to the refinery, and it was hoped that she would remain in that condition until sufficient sugar was taken out of her to put her on an even keel. She took a roll to starboard and her masts banged into the shed. She carried the same list when she left the refinery and went sailing sidewise down the bay yesterday to the Great Admiral to take in her coal.
