Congratulations to Jerry Eliason, Ken Merryman, Craig Smith and Dan Fontain for the Amazing discovery of the Henry B Smith in Lake Superior near Marquette Michigan!!  It was a very substantial discovery of a new shipwreck.  The greatest thing about this discovery is that it was found 100 years later after the 1913 storm on Lake Superior 
 

Here is a couple of newsletter articles on the SS Henry B Smith the guys in our group found.
