Kyle Spangler BG- Aug 2016 - 2048x1152.jpg

Built in 1856, the "Kyle Spangler" worked just four short years before a collision with the schooner "Racine" carried the 40 metre ship to the bottom of Lake Huron. On a dark November night in 1860, there was no time to avoid the "Racine" as she slammed into the "Spangler’s" wooden bow. All crewmembers survived.

Loaded with 15,000 bushels of corn, the vessel sank within ten minutes and today lies in 55 metres of water off Presque Isle, Michigan.
