Steamer J.B. Finley docked Tuesday May 4, 1915   some of the cradles were off the tracks   pulled her until the Engines stalled then four boats came - Crusader - Rover - Voyager - and J.C. Risher and helped pull her back into the River. All hands helped put the cradles on the tracks and then docked her. 4 men worked all night repairing a hole in her bottom  a log had run through her at the foot of the stem   we got her away the next day at 11 AM   at this time the cradles and tracks were in bad shape   Morgan would not repair them   he said the cradles did not need guide blocks on them and everything that was docked they were off the tracks and the men would work all day in the mud and wet and sometimes all night getting them on. Morgan told the calkers if they could not work in the mud they could quit.
