Discovery of LR Doty in Lake Michigan
According to the web page found at http://www.ship-wreck.com/shipwreck/doty/ , the wreck of the steamship LR Doty, which vanished in a storm in 1898, was found at 300' by a group on 16th June 2010. Their video footage revealed that the wreck is upright & intact. The remains of her cargo were still present in her holds. The combination of cold, fresh water & extreme depth has preserved the wreck.
