Depth 185ft/ Length 137ft/ schooner/ Sunk October 14, 1899 in collision with Ketchum

Small, but very interesting schooner. Typo has an intact bowsprit, two of the masts still standing (one snapped off 20 ft up) and lots of items on the deck. She would be just another ordinary wreck (to the extent there are "ordinary" wrecks near Presque Isle) if it was not for her bell. Due to being metal, not brass, the bell was not salvaged and remains in place on her bow, making her a "must do" wreck. She was the fist wreck with the bell on that I dove.
