Don’t miss this intriguing film about one of the Great Lakes’ most mysterious shipwrecks!

The 1870s were a time of boom and bust on the Great Lakes, with more than a thousand ships competing for business. On November 27th, 1875, the Cornelia B. Windiate–a canal schooner–is sent on one last, late-season run from Milwaukee to Buffalo. It’s a bet against Mother Nature that few ship owners or crewmen will take…and this time they lose. The weather takes a drastic turn for the worse and the Windiate disappears. For more than 100 years, it’s assumed that the ship was lost in Lake Michigan. But when she’s found, it’s in another lake altogether! There’s not a mark on her. No crew. No sign of what caused her to sink. Hosts and veteran divers, John Chatterton and Richie Kohler, dive to examine one of the world’s most pristine shipwrecks and help develop a new solution to one the strangest mysteries of the Great Lakes.
