Dagger Board Schooner - Lake Ontario3D Model
It was on May 18, 2019 when Tim Caza and Dennis Gerber picked up a target in deep waters of Lake Ontario during a routine sonar survey. Unfortunatelly we did not check it out that season. We returned to the site on Augut 15, 2020 to investigat the target with our ROV. Well we were not disappointed, it turned out to be a rare Daggerboard schooner.
Possible identity of the Daggerboard schooner: Whitford Gill and his family built on Galloo Island the schooners Three Brothers (1827), Old Taylor, and Galloo. It is estimated that these schooners were built in the 1820’s - 1830’s. Jim kennard, Roger Pawlowski, and Roland Stevens found one of the daggerboard schooner in July of 2014 the Three Brothers. We believe this Daggerboard schooner we found is one of the other long lost schooners. We just don’t know whish one it is at this point in time.
