Tim Caza and Dennis Gerber discovered this two mast schooner in deep waters of Lake Ontario on August 28, 2022 while doing a sonar survey. Because of the depth of the water the only way the site could be reached was with a ROV, (remote operated vehicle). We returned to the site on September 17, 2022 to explore the wreck site.
Much to our surprise it turned out to be remarkably intact and she is sitting up right on the bottom of the lake. After further investigation with the ROV it was noted that it had been involved in a collision with another vessel striking her port side. It was obvious to us that this is the reason why this vessel went down. We spent over six hours above the wreck site that day and the video we took produced 8,377 photographs to do this 3-D model. Based on our investigation it appears to be the wreck of the Maggie Hunter. lost in Lake Ontario on Oct. 10, 1876. For more discoveries go to https://sonarguy.com
