Group finds 2nd shipwreck in Lake Superior
DULUTH, Minn. — The group that found a sunken freighter off the Lake Superior shore of Marquette, Mich. this spring has found a second one — this time north of Duluth, Minn.
The Duluth News Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/15TjMOm ) the shipwreck hunters confirmed the location of Scotiadoc last month. It's in more than 850 feet of water near Thunder Bay, Ontario, possibly making it the deepest shipwreck ever found in the Great Lakes.
The 424-foot ship sank after colliding with another freighter in 1953, killing one person.
Jerry Eliason, of Cloquet, Minn., is part of the group that has found many lost ships, including the long-sought-after wreck of the Henry B. Smith offshore Michigan in May.
He says finding the Smith was the entree and finding "the Scotiadoc was the dessert."
