The 90 feet  wooden schooner Maggie L was one of the last commercial sailing ships on Lake Ontario and the St Lawrence River.  In November of 1927 the bow of the Maggie L was severed by a steel freighter as she was leaving the shipping channel for Clayton, NY.  The Maggie L sank almost immediately.

Has anyone had a good dive on this one

I had a very good dive on this, not very deep, easy to spend lots of time on and visibility was significantly better than most other wrecks in the area.
