I show that a John Nahrstedt was appointed Captain of the following vessels: Malta (schooner), Minnesota SS, 1899; Manola, Minnesota SS, 1900; Marina, Pittsburgh SS, 1901; Marina, Pittsburgh SS, 1902; Frank A. Rockerfeller, Pittsburgh SS, 1903; John Ericsson, Pittsburgh, 1904; Alexander McDougall, Pittsburgh SS, 1905; Alexander McDougall, Pittsburgh SS, 1906; Alexander McDougall, Pittsburgh SS, 1907; Alexander McDougall, Pittsburgh SS, 1908; Alexander McDougall, Pittsburgh SS, 1909; Samuel F. B. Morse, Pittsburgh SS, 1910; Samuel F. B. Morse, Pittsburgh SS, 1911; Elbert H.Gary, Pittsburgh SS, 1912; Elbert H. Gary, Pittsburgh SS, 1913; Captain, Thomas Lynch, Pittsburgh SS, 1914; Thomas Lynch, Pittsburgh SS, 1915; Alva C. Dinkey, Pittsburgh SS, 1917; Alva C. Dinkey, Pittsburgh SS, 1918; Alva C. Dinkey, Pittsburgh SS, 1919; Alva C. Dinkey, Pittsburgh SS, 1920; and Alva C. Dinkey, Pittsburgh SS, 1921. The Rockerfeller, Ericsson, and McDougall were whalebacks. The Rockerfeller is still around as the whaleback museum Meteor in Superior, Wisconsin. The Lynch and Dinkey were operated by Pittsburgh SS until the late 1970's. If you go to a site hosted by Bowling Green University, http://ul.bgsu.edu/cgi-bin/xvsl2.cgi , you can use each boat name as a search term. You will get a photo and some basic information on each boat. Also, the 1908 Lynn's Directory shows John Nahrstedt residing in Brookholm, Ontario.
