Scuba Diving in Maitland wreck, Lake Michigan, Michigan USA
The Maitland was a 141 ft/ 42.97 m schooner, built in Goderich, Canada and launched in 1861. She was changed to American ownership in 1867 and collided with two ships, while carrying a load of corn, on June 11 , 1871. Although her crew spotted the schooner Golden Harvest, it was too late to avoid a glancing blow. Yet this was not her fatal stroke. Behind the first schooner was the Mears, that struck hard on her starboard bow and made her sink quickly. She now lies in Lake Michigan, in 85 ft/ 25.9 m depth of water.
The hull is upright and intact and the top deck is well preserved and easily visited. Many deck fittings, as well as her windlass can be seen. What seems to be her deck cabin roof rests upside down off the starboard stern, while the Samson post, cabin outline, rudder, bilges and mast holes are all there. It is considered to be an intermediate dive, while current is mild and visibility can be good to excellent. Caution is required, as divers can disturb silt.
