Video of the raising of the "Mystery Ship" - Alvin Clark
A reader sent me this link to a video found on the Great Lakes Maritime Institute (GLMI) website of the raising of the old ship from the waters of Green Bay. The wreck was discovered about midway between Menominee, MI and Chambers Island in the bay of Green Bay. The efforts began in 1968, when local diver Frank Hoffman was hired by a local commercial fisherman to free his nets from an underwater obstruction. Click Here to see the video (about 30 minutes long). Thanks to Mark Olsen for sending this interesting link!!
Here is a link to another site on the raising of the Alvin Clark. It covers the time period from the raising of the ship on July 29, 1969 to the destruction of the deteriorated hulk in May 1994.
