Long Description: In Lake Erie, twelve miles out from Dunkirk and 90 feet below the surface, rests the two-masted schooner CARLINGFORD. This wooden vessel sank after colliding with the steel steamer Brunswick on Nov. 12, 1888. Only recently discovered, the CARLINGFORD sits upright in pristine condition. Divers marvel at this rare site. Seaman``s tools are still scattered about her deck. Dead-eyes, blocks, rails, and other implements remain untouched. Her massive, wooden stock anchor is still in place. Because of the depth, this is dive for experienced, advanced divers only. If you have a chance to visit the CARLINGFORD, please take only photos so that others can experience this unspoiled wreck. She is closely monitored for pillagers by local divers.
