Rare ship found in Lake Ontario

Shipwreck enthusiasts have discovered a rare dagger-board schooner in the very deep water off the southern shore of Lake Ontario near Oak Orchard, New York.

Jim Kennard and Dan Scoville of Shipwreck World located the ship using deep scan sonar equipment. Vessels of this type were used for a short period of time in the early 1800’s.

This ship is the only dagger-board known to have been found in the Great Lakes.

Kennard and Scoville also what they call the “Holy Grail” of shipwrecks in the Great Lakes in June. Read story

Give them the money!

Hey, I drove a Pinto. It wasn't that bad a car! Really. I did fine with the ladies...(awkward pause) The mileage was good.
