"Schooner G" (unknown)
LOCATION: Eastern Lake Erie off Barcelona, NY, USA
LIES: Upright on mud bottom. 
CONDITION: Completely Intact.
DEPTH: 150-165' [46-50m]
TYPE: Two-masted Schooner.
CARGO: ?
DIMENSIONS 83' [25m] Length x 16' [5m] beam (
by Steve Rickcreeck & John Gavroy): 
NOTES:
Both mast are standing, extending to 90' [27m]. Moderate zebra mussel infestation. Divers have been doing some scraping in places. Bow heads West, 260 from north. Estimate the deck is listing ~20 to starboard and sits ~10'-15' [3-5m] off of the bottom. Most unusual for  Lake Erie, ~80% of the hull remains above the bottom. Starboard midship offers least relief... At the bow, the bowsprit is lying to starboard. A scrolled carving remains. An anchor with stock lies on the port bow deck. Chain hangs over port and starboard rails.  Belaying pins and dead eyes are in place (4 fore and 3 aft). Various rigging members are scattered on deck. No hatch covers on either hatch. Both holds are silted to just below the decking ( I did not try to determine cargo). At the stern, the cabin remains in place,  less a few boards from the roof. A pump is mounted to the deck,  just in front of cabin on the port side. Another object exist in front of the cabin on the starboard side corner, perhaps another pump less the handle..? A cut-out is present in the cabin roof for a stove pipe, which more than likely has collapsed below deck. The tiller is intact and steered slightly to port. Port davit is intact and empty. Starboard davit is missing. Two large square windows, less the glass, exist on the transom. Aside from remnants of modern dive mooring lines, the site appears pristine. Put this one top of the list for a permanent mooring...
