One shipwreck discovery leads to anotherFriday, October 11, 2013 by: SooToday.com Staff
A 60 year-old shipwreck has been discovered in the Lake Superior waters near Thunder Bay, according to a story in the Duluth News Tribune newspaper.
It had reportedly sunk in 1953 with a loss of one life.
The 452-foot freighter was originally named the SS Martin Mullen, but renamed Scotiadoc in 1947.
The shipwreck hunters made the discovery early September at a depth of 850 feet below the surface.
At that depth it may be the record-holder for being the deepest wreck found in the Great Lakes.
The same group of shipwreck hunters found the Henry B. Smith in May of this year.
