At about 115 feet of water in Lake Ontario just outside Port Dalhousie, there is a small unidentified wooden schooner we affectionately call "The Tiller". We know it dates from the pre 1850s as the steering mechanism was still a tiller arm versus the round wheel used for steering after the 1850s. In excellent quality, this wreck is easy to access and we often take our Advanced open water students to it for their deep and boat dives as part of their course.
DESCRIPTION: Looking aft from about mid-ship, the wooden wreck known only as the "Tiller" rests on her starboard side. There are two toppled masts across the starboard side with the ends resting on the lakebed. Along the port side, there are remnants of the port side railing as two divers swim aft alongside it. On the deck there are two large cargo holds visible with a small third one barely visible towards the stern. The Tiller arm is barely visible as it points to port.
Wreck divers will love this art print that captures the typical mood and visibility of diving historic time capsules such as these in the Great Lakes.
