Northerner and Mahoning or Niagara with Elmer’s Watersports (1 opening)

June 5 @ 12:30 pm - 5:00 pm CDT

Please contact Elmer’s Watersports about wreck locations and dive openings.

Northerner
This is a popular recreational dive as it is one of a few intact schooners that sits upright at 130ft.  The main mast is still in place, rising 75 feet above the deck. The stern mast had been recovered for a local museum. The hold still contains the cargo of cordwood, the logs still stacked up to the deck openings. The deck cargo of wood was removed at Port Washington prior to the accident. The windlass, anchor chain, center board winch along with the bow sprit and figure head are still in place.

Mahoning
The two masted brigantine Mahoning was built in Cleveland, Ohio by William Jones in the year 1847. In 1861 the vessel was valued at $9,500 and rated B1 and in 1863 the Board of Lake Underwriters changed the valuation to $8,000 and left the rating at B1. She was used to carry grain in the eastern Great Lakes after she was first built. Later she was often seen on Lake Michigan at Milwaukee and Chicago continuing in hauling grain.. The Mahoning was sold in 1857 and spent the remainder of her life on the western Great Lakes hauling lumber mainly to Milwaukee and Chicago.  Read more…
