Great Lakes Shipwreck Found – Henry B. Smith?

With almost a hundred years surpassed, wreck hunters believe that they have found the wreck of the SS Henry B. Smith, a freighter lost in Lake Superior during a freak storm. Surprisingly, it appears that despite the long years, the vessel is still intact.

Built in 1906, the SS Henry B. Smith was a steel-hulled, propeller-driven freighter was constructed by the American Ship Building Company. During the Great Lakes Storm of 1913, the vessel was laden with a cargo of iron ore and a crew of 25. On 10 November 1913, at the height of the storm, the ship went down with all hands.
 
Discovered in May 2013, in 535 feet of water off the shore of Marquette, Michigan, a wreck of unconfirmed identity lies in the middles of a spilled cargo of iron ore. Utilising a combination of research, maritime data and raw instinct enabled the wreck hunters to discover the wreck site.
 
According to the footage and photos made of the wreck, its discoverers believe the vessel to be the SS Henry B. Smith. It appears to have been broken down the middle with its stern damaged in particular.
