Mariner (tug)
The power tug Mariner, owned by Albert Jansen of Friday harbor, and powered with an 85 horse-power Union engine, was wrecked last month on Ice Berg Point, and proved a total loss. The engine has been recovered. The Mariner was a new boat, and only in commission a few weeks. just how the accident occurred is not known, but there was a heavy surf running and she began to break up immediately. (The Western Yacht and Launchman, II (February 15, 1911), p. 35.)

Western Mariner (tug)
The 73-foot tug Western Mariner of Richmond, California, suddenly capsized and sank three miles of Yaquina Head on April 9 while en route from Richmond for Portland. The Yaquina Bay Coast Guard station responded quickly to the sinking tug's distress call. The three men on board were thrown into 50-degree water, but were able to right an overturned lifeboat, from which they were rescued by a Coast Guard helicopter.
