Gales of November Shipwreck Series: Tuesday, November 4, 6:30pm
“We lost here boys. She died a hard death,” was the explanation given to those waiting at the dock when Captain Ole Hansen returned to port without his barge. Seventy-nine years later author and explorer Valerie van Heest and her team discovered the wreck in 230 feet of water. Through research and underwater exploration, Valerie pieced together the true account of the sinking and placed this vessel in its proper historical context as the first self-unloading steamer and one of the most significant vessels ever to sail the Great Lakes.
