Read all about USRC Commodore Perry's general description, specifications and time line.

Notes:

1. Latitude/longitude, including for days in port, show representative decimal positions for each day, as calculated by the Old Weather project's analysis program. As such, they differ by varying amounts from the positions recorded, usually at noon, in the log pages. In addition, some latitudes/longitudes have been amended in edited logs for errors in the logs, for errors in identifying locations by the analysis program, or simply for greater accuracy. In all cases, refer to the log-page scans for the positions as originally recorded. Not all log pages contain this information and the ships' positions have therefore often been estimated.

2. Full account of any day is available by clicking on the link above that day. Any groups of links may refer to log book covers and introductory information; some may be blank.

3. Logbook events have been formatted but not edited. The quality and quantity of transcribed information therefore varies, and may include up to 3 versions of the same data depending on the number of volunteers working on the originals.

4 - 8 A.M. — Mod. to stiff breeze from S.W. to W x N. overcast to partly clear. Mod. to rough sea. 4.45 ~ sail wind drawing ahead. put reef in main trysail and furled it. At about 7.05 the boatswain who was filling front tank of forward water closet was washed overboard by the vessel taking a sea over the bows, - streamed the life buoys and immediately stopped the vessel bringing her up head to sea, lowered the starboard otter boat sending hand into the rigging to keep lookout on the man overboard. Otter boat rowed down to where buoys were streamed and where boatswain was last seen but was unable to find him. He was clothed in oil skins and heavy boots that probably weighed him down and which with the temperature of water evidently rendered it impossible for him to keep afloat. He was close to the buoys when last reported. Steamed various courses for about an hour in search of missing man, otter boat also making search. At about 8.00 saw a sea comb over otter boat and capsize her. Steamed down alongside and after several attempts, the vessel steering very badly succeeded in getting lines to the men who were clinging to the overturned boat and hauled them on board. Administered the methods of resusitation and took every expedient to restore the men who were far gone with exhaustion. Made an attempt to pick up the boat but the sea getting heavier abandoned the effort. Alfred Haefeli , boatswain was lost expended three life buoys. Worth J. Ross, 1st Lieut.
