Young Captain Takes Rest After Active Year

Capt. Frank Collins of Carmanville Has tied Up Vessel For Winter

Captain Frank Collins of Carmanville, N.D.B., has concluded a successful season’s freighting, and the “Neva Belle” is now tied up in St. John’s Harbor. Besides making several trips to distant points on the Newfoundland and Labrador Coast, Capt. Collins voyaged to Canadian Ports, and would have ventured as far South as Barbados but for the difficulty of securing a crew to sail through the submarine zone.

Still in his early thirties, the young Captain has had twenty years of seafaring, having commanded several schooners. He left the city on Thursday for Carmanville, to spend a few months with his family, before going “down to the sea again” in the early spring.
