The bow of the 300-foot long bulk freighter Norman, located in 200 feet of water in northern Lake Huron. Built in 1890 and sunk in a collision just five years later, the wreck is one of the most impressive in the Great Lakes. The Thunder Bay 2010 project will search for shipwrecks in similar water depths with an eye to discovering wrecks in similar states of preservation.
