    Navigating Gitche Gumee’s Sleeping gods and Rock Formations.

    Another hyper link to a sexually explicit prehistoric navigation system, you to can learn to navigate Lake Superior's stone gods and mountanous breasts.

    That was very interesting. We have forgotten how to navigate like this.

    Good job Scott. Although I am far more interested in the early European ships that sank between 1678-1804, it is interesting to see the remote locations that you have searched.

    This is what I have researched as the oldest wrecks in the lakes system.

    Frontenac 1678
    Griffin 1679
    Unnamed sloop wrecked in Lake Ontario 1732
    Entire Wilkens Expedition 1753 Lake Erie
    Iroquois 1767
    Speedy 1783
    Esperance Lake Huron 1787
    Washington 1799
    (HMS?) Hope Lake Huron 1804

    Well, those are all laudable research efforts and I wish you the best of luck. If you are into early historical shipwrecks of the Great lakes no one has really made much of an effort to track down the early Hudsons Bay Sailing vessels that operated on Lake Superior prior to the locks at the Sault St Marie, the Beaver, the Otter etc.,
    One of the cool things about my prehistoric underwater archaeology project is that the plan is to produce a feature-length documentary on the subject. I am starting to shoot the trailer this spring.
