George A. Marsh

The George A. Marsh is a three masted schooner built in 1882 in Muskegon, Michigan.
Dimensions: length 135 feet, beam 27 feet and hold depth of 9 feet 3 inches.
On August 8, 1917 loaded with coal, the Marsh was lost in a summer storm. Many lives were lost, including the captain's wife and children. Today the wreck lies in 85 feet of water and is almost entirely intact. The wreck has a wheel, capstan, and stove to keep divers occupied. The club is lucky to have an expert on the wreck and if Jeff goes on a club charter, a trip to the Marsh is almost guaranteed.
