The wreck of a steamer discovered 103 years after it was hit by a huge wave and sunk in Lake Superior.

The Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum, announced the discovery of the wreck of the S. R. Kirby, of the Keweenaw Peninsula of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

The researchers found what seemed to be wreckage in the vicinity of Eagle Harbor, Mich., in 2018 and beyond, and then turned back to the identification of the wreck, and an underwater drone on in the year.

The ship was loaded with iron ore, and the dragging of an iron ore-laden vessel, the George E. Hartnell, was caught in a heavy north-west gale, in the spring of 1916, according to the Museum’s collection. “As the vessels closed in on the Eagle Harbor, MI, the Kirby was hit by a huge wave, broke up, and sank,” it explained in a statement. “Of the 22-man crew, only two were saved.”

The researchers are now documenting the wreckage and will have to eventually take the story in a Museum in Whitefish Point, Mich.
