Steamed down to her and found her to be the Caledonia of New Banff she had apparently drifted from Red Bay as a chain hung from her star board hawsepipe. Manned the lifeboat and sent her alongside. The mate on her return reported that there were no crew on board and she appeared to be sinking, therefore did not board her.
