Uranus (schooner)
The Uranus, a three-masted baldheaded schooner of 152 tons, commenced her existence as the steamer Salinas, built at San Francisco in 1861, and owned in the coasting trade by Goodall, Nelson & Perkins. She was condemned about 1890, having then entered the Golden Gate more times than any other vessel afloat. The hull was bought by C. J. Jorgensen and rebuilt by him, with the result that in 1894 she was granted a new register as the schooner Uranus. Capt Jorgensen had the Uranus in the codfishery for three years, and then failied. The schone was taken over by edward Pond and operated until 1904 then being laid up for good. John Lyman, Pacific Coast Built Sailers, 1850-1905, The Marine Digest. Sept. 13, 1941, p.2
