Speed record?[edit]

The USA 17 (yacht) article claims faster speeds than the ones here. LRT24 (talk) 11:22, 12 February 2011 (UTC)

Such speeds can be reached by sailing vessels with planing hulls. The claim made in this article is for a ship. Kablammo (talk) 14:31, 7 April 2014 (UTC)

Delivery of locomotive to San Francisco[edit]

How could she deliver a locomotive in 1869 after sinking in 1859 ? Additionally, I couldn't find this info in the source. (Search for Number 150 and name of ship did not help; haven't read the whole page, though.) --94.245.249.216 (talk) 23:12, 16 January 2014 (UTC)

The vessel from 1869 was a new ship, built in 1868, which took the same.[1][2] I deleted the section. Kablammo (talk) 14:50, 7 April 2014 (UTC)
