Events / Stories
Board of Trade Wreck report for the loss of the Pakhoi 1881.
Finding of a Naval Court, held at Amoy on the 11th. of November 1881, into the stranding of the steamship Pakhoi of London.
1. That the steamship Pakhoi on entering the harbour of Amoy at 20 minutes past six o'clock on the night of Saturday 5th. of November 1881, struck on the Brown Rock, to which a red and white buoy, known as the Brown Rock Buoy, is attached.
2. That all proper measures were at once taken to save life and property.
3. It being past sundown, the Master of the Pakhoi was unable to observe the proper landmarks for clearing the Brown Rock. and had consequently to rely chiefly on the position of the Brown Rock Buoy.
4. The position of the buoy in the Admiralty chart, as put into court by the Master of the Pakhoi, is south east sixty feet from the rock, this position is confirmed by the official publication of the Imperial Maritime Customs, entitled "List of Chinese Lighthouses" which further states the buoy to be moored in ten feet low water.
5. The actual position of the buoy as taken by navigating Lieutenant Charles A. Morshead, of her Britannic Majesty's ship "Kestral", on the 10th. instant, by angle bearings is east by south one eighth south, about 90 yards from its position as marked in the Admiralty chart, No. 1764, Amoy Harbour, and the Customs official book, and is moored at half flood.
6. That the Court is of the opinion that the stranding of the Pakhoi was mainly caused by the false position of the buoy, and that the Master and officers are absolved from blame in the matter; their certificates are consequently returned.
Given under our hands at her Britannic Majesty's Consulate at Amoy this 11th. day if November 1881.
