Great Lakes sailers might find this interesting

I came across this story of a ship wreck discovery on Lake Ontario and thought some of you guys might find it interesting.

Nice find. Lake Ontario, being the smallest of the Great Lakes, doesn't always command the shipwreck interest of other lakes, but it's still got the most commercial traffic and thus opportunities for wrecks.

It's not generally known how very deep that part of the lake is, whereas everyone knows Lake Erie is so shallow as to qualify as a really wide river.

It is very interesting.
Litteraly thousands of ship wrecks litter the Great Lakes.
This one went down two hundred years ago and there are just finding it now, very interesting.

Maybe some day they will find LaSalle's "Griffon."

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I didn't think you sailed on a lake?
The Atlantic does not count, its not a LAKE!
We proudly sail the inland seas.
