Description

This wooden hull sits off Ogdensburg’s waterfront at about a 52 ft. depth with a noticable current. Lying with the current the vessel is about 130 ft. x24 ft. x 8 ft. with some decking remaining however no rudder or “bow spirit”. Burnt to the water line, it now sits about 8 ft. high on a firm clay/silt bottom. This site is about halfway between the site of the Rothesay and the Canadian Coast Guard Station directly in front of the large brick chimney on the Ogdensburg shore and south of the downstream channel. Sea & Sky Scuba Shop of Prescott and Save Our Shipwrecks try to keep the site buoyed. Visits to this wreck are by boat.
