Lake Erie


Depth 120ft/ Length 117 ft/ Wooden Schooner/ Real name and Launch and Sinking dates unknown

Crystal is not the real name of this wreck as she is yet to be identified. In the good visibility, Crystal is a stunning wreck with lot to see including bowsprit, anchor, windlass, pumps, and of course the wheel, all of it generously covered in fishing nets. In a bad visibility, Crystal is an eerie wreck and an entanglement hazard. Here are some shots from a very bad visibility day:

I would have to come back yet again to shoot her in full splendor when visibility improves.
