Ship Wrecks of Lake Champlain not in the Underwater Historic Preserve

There are several shipwrecks in Shelburne Bay at different depths.  The 6 that we know of were all scuttled out of Shelburne Shipyard.  We are working on locating a Ferry and a Tug Boat.  Once we have located them, and dove them, I’ll post info about them here.
