Description

The Aloha was built in 1888 at Mt. Clemens, Michigan. While in tow on route to Kingston in 1917, the Aloha foundered in a gale.  One life was lost.  The hull is mostly intact.  Most of the artifacts have been removed and the winch can be viewed at the Marine Museum of the Great Lakes, located in Kingston, Ontario. One of the most interesting parts of the Aloha are the Roman numeral depth markings on her bow.
