Mary E McLachlan

Built as a huge four masted schooner, the Mary E McLachlan is believed to have been the largest schooner to have sailed the great lakes. At a length of 251′ (76.5m) and a 41’ (12.49m) beam, this four (4) masted schooner is one of the finest examples of a wreck, full of interesting things to see. On the evening of November 7th, 1921 the Mary McLachlan was anchored in Mountain Bay when a strong North-Wester came up and swamped the ship in less than 40′ (12m) of water. There was no loss of life when the ship foundered. She currently sits on Visibility is often reduced due to the outflows from two rivers but a trip to this vessel is a local must do.
