The Onondaga - Lake Ontario3D Model
Our first discovery of the 2019 season.
The wreck of the Onondaga found off Stony Point on May 4, 2019 by Tim Caza and Dennis Gerber. The Onondaga was a 3-mast wood schooner 137 feet in length built in 1870 then converted to a schooner barge in 1883. She left Oswego on November 5, 1907 in heavy seas on route to Montreal. The Onondaga ran into seas that was one of the heaviest of the year and sprung a leak. All efforts were made to reach Sackets Harbor, but the barge sank off Stony Point with 632 tons of coal in her bulk.
She now lies upright on the bottom with her port side blown out. Other than that she is remarkably intact with an anchor hanging from her bow and what appears to be some sort of mast in her midsection still standing. For more shipwreck discoveries go to https://sonarguy.com
