Labelled ‘Target 1’ when located in May, 2017, this site required additional survey before a more complete assessment was made. This sonar image, gathered in June, was produced by an AUV running perpendicular to the vessel’s bow. Intact masts and rigging are shown, as well as the round funnel, separated from the vessel’s stern cabin, are shown, as well as the hole in the vessel’s port quarter. This is tell-tale evidence of a collision. Source: Michigan Technological University/Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary.
