Here's a rather obscure "On This Day" for you: June 1, 1919 marked the beginning of the last voyage of the Casco, a schooner, as the article below mentions, rather well-known as one in which Stevenson had spent some time in the South Seas. If the popular phrase might be applied to a vessel, "She died as she had lived". (Popular Mechanics, January 1920)
