Dundee
LOCATION: Western Lake Erie off Cleveland, Ohio, USA
LIES: Upright on mud bottom. 
CONDITION: Mostly Intact, broken at stern.
DEPTH: 75' [23m]
TYPE: Schooner-barge (originally 3-mast)
BUILT: 1893 at West Bay City, MI, USA.
LOST: Floundered in a storm September 11, 1900 prior to being cut loose by the steamer John N. Glidden.
CARGO: Iron-ore
DIMENSIONS: 211' [64m] Length x 35' [11m] beam x 16'-5" [5m] .
NOTES:
Site is currently being surveyed by the Maritime Archeological Survey Team, MAST . Mooring is secured to the Deck Winch approximately mid-ships. Light zebra mussel infestation. Deck planking is mostly intact and sits approximately 10 ft [3m] off of the bottom. At the bow, a large donkey boiler, steam winch, and chain sits a top the jagged pile of collapsed decking. The anchor chain runs through the hawse pipe and over the starboard side, hanging, empty, just shy of the bottom -- anchors apparently salvaged. A large stem post extends well above the decking. Moving aft, 6 Cargo hatches exist, all offer easy access to the hold.  The deck is littered with numerous artifacts such as turnbuckles, blocks, knees, planking...etc. Just aft of the aft mast, the stern is mostly collapsed/broken. The rudder post remains upright here. Overall an exposed, large, intact schooner in excellent condition, especially considering her shallow depth and location just off of Cleveland. A must see!

A very rough sketch of the Dundee.
