May 14, 2008

The Cleveland Underwater Explorers (CLUE) have posted sidescan sonar images they used to find the historic shipwreck of the steamship Anthony Wayne in 50 feet of water in Lake Erie. CLUE had a busy year and has posted about their discoveries. You’ll find a link to their page under the NEW Entries section at the top of the MUA Home Page.
