3DShipwrecks - Philo Scoville

Published on 2/18/2023
We have added another popular Tobermory shipwreck dive site to our website and database. The 140 ft schooner Philo Scoville was built in 1863 in Cleveland, Ohio. It was lost in 1889 when it was driven into the shallows of Russel Island, Tobermory, ON during a storm and was pounded to pieces. One crewman was lost in the incident. Today it is one of over twenty shipwrecks in the Fathom Five National Marine Park. The model was created from 2,311 30-megapixel images shot on one 40 minute DPV dive by Andrew Goodman. The link to the new model is:
