Historical Perspectives - Flying Independent aground 1963 - 
Jim Hastings
In July 1963 around midnight the Flying Independent was downbound at Cape Vincent with a reported load of Army Tanks for Vietnam. She got too close to Horne's Point picking up a pilot and ran aground on the end of Hinckley Flats Shoal. I was watching and heard the pilot yelling as he climbed the ladder, "turn out, turn out" but it was too late. The Tug Graeme Stewart was first to arrive, later in the week assisted by Tugs Helen McAllister, Robinson Bay and Salvage Monarch. The cargo was shifted and the tugs got her off. This was the reason for the addition of bouy 242 at Horne's Point, (Pt. Alexandria).
