Long Description: Built in 1861 and launched July 1861 at Three Mile Bay, NY as "J.B. Penfield" and sank August 17, 1889. This wooden three masted schooner (136.2 ft. x 26.2 ft. x 10.8 ft.) was renamed A.E. Vickery Feb. 25, 1884 and struck a rock while entering the American "Narrows" with a cargo of 21,000 bushels of corn destined for Wisers Distillery at Prescott, Ontario. Normally buoyed and located along side Rock Island Reef Light, divers can follow the buoy line into a very quick surface current onto the shoal head in 25-30 ft. of water. The bow of the Vickery lies about 10-15 ft. away at a depth of 65 feet.
