Most intact schooner shipwreck in the world Cal Kothrade

In 2019 a team of divers, historians and shipwreck enthusiasts found and identified a new shipwreck in northern Lake Michigan.  Though the W.C. Kimball was not unlike many other vessels that sailed the inland seas during the late 1800’s, it is the condition she is in now, that makes her one of the most significant finds ever. 
    Cal Kothrade tells the story of how shipwreck hunter Ross Richardson found the Kimball, and of the diverse team that would eventually solve the mystery of what this sail away’s name is. Through video, photographs and artwork, Cal discusses the condition of the wreck today, and the forensic clues which led to its identification, as well as what the vessel’s final hours might have been like.
