side scan sonar image of the DR Hannas

In 1919, the D.R. Hanna collided with the steamer Quincy A. Shaw and went down with $1,261,300 worth of cargo, the largest insurance loss in the Great Lakes up to that time. The D.R. Hanna rests upside down with single entrance in the bow. Although the wreck was located in October 1919, no salvage attempt has been attempted due its position and depth.
