Built at Belfast, Me, 1876." signed lower right "Percy Sanborn" oil on canvas 24 x 36 in. (60.9 x 91.4 cm.) Footnotes The ship P.R. Hazeltine was commissioned in 1875 by Captain William Herriman of Belfast, Maine. The three-masted ship at 1,836 tons was the largest ever built at the C.P. Carter shipyard. The P.R. Hazeltine was launched on May 25, 1876. After the launching the ship was towed to Bangor, where she was stepped and then loaded with deals (pine boards) destined for Liverpool, England. On August 3, 1876 in a dense fog she went aground on Cape Sable at the entrance of the Bay of Fundy. Anchors were set and assistance recruited from shore in throwing off a deck load of lumber. She was finally pulled off by steam tug, but the keel and planking were damaged and the ship began leaking. Nevertheless, she proceeded on her journey and the ship P.R. Hazeltine made the trip from Cape Sable to Liverpool in sixteen days, a fast trip by any account.
