Practically a footnote to the story, but airplanes have mysteriously disappeared in water since they began flying.

Well played Subby. I like the cut of your jib, the craft with which you launched that headline made me ketch my breath, that barged right through the nonsense, and while some my think it's dinghy, I feel it was the pinnacle of my day. Yacht.

I was going to make a pun but I see you've taken them all, so frigate.

Is there a Michigan trifecta in play?

No one went looking for this because it was wood. All the good stuff floated away.

It's OK, these guys got you covered...from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, to Calgary and all the clipper routes...

If anyone wants to see a sonar image of the wreck on the bottom, the Detroit News added pictures to the AP story.

Calgary?  That seems a bit far inland to me.

Sorry to have taken wind from your sails.

It's in kentucky.

"We realize now that the deck and the masts floated ashore with the survivors, while the hull went to the bottom,"

Really.  Too bad the survivors who floated in to shore clinging to the deck and masts didn't say anything about it to anyone.

Which is why no one ever thinks to look for shipwrecks there. It's so obvious now that I think about it. We are spending all our time looking where they aren't instead of looking where they are! Better call CNN, I think we may have a hot new tip on the location of that missing Malaysian airliner.

How was this not the boobies?  Fail, Fark, fail.

edmo: Practically a footnote to the story, but airplanes have mysteriously disappeared in water since they began flying.


There is an area over Lake Michigan that has had disappearances similar to the Bermuda Triangle. Called the Michigan Triangle. Obviously not as famous, but there's still an interesting history behind it.

I was aboard both the Nina and the Pinta just this morning.  Neither sank though.

When I was in elementary school in the early 1990's in a central-Illinois town of 3,000, in music class, the teacher said that Noah's Ark was real, and she saw that they had found it under the ice on Mt. Everest.
I'm not sure why we were talking about that at all in music class.

My image came from a page called "32 Interesting Facts About Noah's Ark." The last two are:

31. No one knows where the Ark is currently located. After it rested on Mount Ararat, many expeditions have tried to find it, but there has been no hard evidence yet.

32. Marco Polo was one of the discoverers who found the Ark after a three-day hike in the snow.

Behold: facts!

/Bonus fact #2 is also demonstrably wrong: Goliath could not have been a Nephilim if all living creatures -- including the Nephilim -- were wiped out by the Flood.  Goliath does not appear in the Bible until dozens of generations after the Flood.

Clive Cussler's NUMA is a neat organization.  http://www.numa.net
Cool to see someone set up a group like that as part of his book research and pastime.

I was hoping they found the Robert Mackenzie.
