Venus shipwreck

The Venus found itself caught in a gale storm on Lake Huron and wasn’t able to get back to port in 1887. David Trotter and his dive team located and identified the Venus in May 2014, then dove the wreck again in the spring of 2016. In the video footage, you’ll see several grindstones on the deck and inside the cargo hold of the vessel. Historical records say the Venus was the only ship to founder on Lake Huron carrying grindstones, making the identification easy for Trotter’s team.
