A pair of Lake Superior shipwreck hunters got slightly lost earlier this year while out on the water. But, oh, what they found.
David Shepherd and Rob Valley, who live in Thunder Bay,
Ontario, say they made an unplanned discovery of a sunken vessel that all evidence suggests is a tugboat called the Mary Ann, scuttled more than 75 years ago. It’s a boat perhaps somewhat unremarkable if not for the fact that in 1867 it became the first vessel registered in the then-new Dominion of Canada.
