Originally built in 1883 as the Steambarge Sakie Shephard the 118 ft Metropole went through several rebuilds after sinking in shallow water and burning at the dock in 1898. Its sinking in 1903 was apparently caused by a leaking shaft seal. It was carrying a load of barrel staves some of which can still be seen. Today it rests in 150 ft of water totally intact and is an amazing example of an almost miniature wooden Great Lakes freighter. The model was created from 1,800 6720 x 4480 pixel still images shot by Andrew Goodman on one 30 minute dive.
