A Bit About Authors, Georgann and Mike Wachter
We love diving both fresh and saltwater and have explored the underwater world in over 20 countries. While wreck diving is our passion, we enjoy coral reefs and have an unabating concern for the health pf planet ocean.
We located over 50 wreck sites. In just the last two years, we pinpointed two wrecks at Toledo OH, the republic and west break wall barge at Lorain OH, a mud scow, schooner, and Whaleback Barge 104 at Cleveland OH, an old steamer off Avon Lake OH, and the Alice Gill and Iron Cliff at Sandusky OH in Sandusky Bay.
Stay tuned for more information on these and other diving adventures.

To encourage recreational diving and dive tourism, we usually publish the locations of the shipwrecks we find. The only exceptions to this are when the ship has an artifact on it that needs to be documented before providing public access, and when the person who told us of the wreck wants it kept secret.
