Adventure Sports Newmarket, and Clear Water Scuba and Marine Salvage, a perfect day out on Lake Huron, with a great group of divers.
In her day the Wexford carried a variety of cargo including sugar, banana, rubber, citrus, tannin, tea, tung oil, manufactured goods, and wheat, but now it only carries water, silt and occasionally divers.
The Wexford was originally outfitted to be steam and sail powered, but the sails were later removed. The pulleys and lines inside the ship would appear to be from equipment used to move its cargo, powered by the two sizeable windlasses near the middle of the ship, fore and aft of the center pilothouse.
At 250′ long the Wexford was originally built for sailing the oceans but towards the end of her days called the Great Lakes home. She was lost in the Great Storm of 1913 and only found in 2000 (by local fisherman Don Chalmers) so still has a number of rare artifacts aboard from plates to fixtures which will hopefully remain for years to come.
