Lake Erie

Barge F

Depth 145ft/ Length 100ft ? / Wooden Barge

Another one of the unidentified Lake Erie wrecks. I could not find the length estimates, but Barge F was not a very long ship. She is relatively intact, but there was not much of a profile left due to silt accumulation. Her deck was about 6-8 ft off the lake bottom and the holds were still visible but filled with silt. There were a number of items on the deck that still made her a worthwhile dive, such as intact wheel mechanism and the wheel itself; the top of the rudder sticking out of the silt, two anchors and a big windlass.
