The Steamer SWAN was at the Elizabeth Marine Ways several times.  The first time is October 7, 1911 when she has some general repairs.  On November 19, 1915 she begins repair work that is not completed for five months.  On December 25, 1921 she is docked again, and during this stay is floated off the Ways twice by high waters.
