Final Voyage

Unidentified wooden vessel thought to be a tandem-centerboard schooner and probably the remains of the Emeline which was lost in 1896. The Emeline, official number 7492, was a three masted schooner constructed at Vicksburg, Michigan in 1862.

The wreckage lies at an average depth of 18 feet with its bow oriented at approximately 190 magnetic. Its articulated remains have an exposed overall length of approximately 106 feet. The site consists of the lower hull preserved to about the turn of the bilge, bow components, starboard and portside railing sections, and the dis-articulated transom. The flattened and scattered condition of the wreckage stands in mute testimony to the destructive forces of the dynamiting in 1903 and subsequent ice and storm surge damage.
