Lake Superior diver Mark Wick tells stories of steamship America, which sank off Isle Royale nearly 100 years ago

Matthew Brown visited with diver Mark Wick Oct. 26 about the steamship America. His third cousin was first mate on the ship when it sank off Isle Royale after hitting a submerged reef; everyone aboard was saved. The wreck is a popular dive site today, as it is in fairly protected water, and the bow is just a few feet from the surface. Mark speaks at this year's Gales of November conference in Duluth, Nov. 2 & 3.
