Monty Halls' heads underwater to visit the Cornelia B. Windiate shipwreck, a wreck that is so pristine there are very little clues to how it actually sank in 1975. During his investigation, Monty will team up with his team of divers to try and answer the one question on everyone's mind, what happened to the ghost ship of Thunder Bay?
Under the surface of every body of water on earth there lurks a mystery or blood curdling legend - a tale of lost treasure, deadly curse, ghost ship or ancient civilisation. In this series Monty Halls goes in search of the real story behind the worlds greatest underwater mysteries, pushing the safety limits on truly dangerous dives backed up by cutting edge camera technology. Advances in technical diving and multi-scan mapping tools mean that these sites can be revealed as never before, all Monty needs to do is launch the expedition for the exploration to begin. This is true Indiana Jones diving wrapped around gripping detective stories set against the backdrop of some of the most beautiful and mysterious locations on earth.

Welcome to the History Channel, the home of gripping and powerful documentaries. Here you can watch both full length documentaries and series that explore some of the most comprehensive pieces of world history.

About what I expected in terms of the sinking. Overloaded, little freeboard, she was overwhelmed by the water and ice and just went down. I'd read about this vessel, but not that she'd been found. An amazing wreck site.

30% more load than what was determined to be safe = water line much higher up on the haul which = water adding to the weight by getting into the cargo bays. Essentially turning the boat into a water bottle in your pool or bath tub. You fill it up with water without damaging anything aaand it sinks.

I think they thought the boat was unsinkable. I think they even bragged about. And low and behold, it hits an iceberg. Everyone tried to flee (except the band- they kept playing until their death) and even though there was "no survivors", there was one woman with a BEAUTIFUL necklace. She didnt tell anyone though.... they should make that into a movie.

Seeing the ship was over her capacity and in freezing weather the ship was taking on ice that made her top heavy and she was locked in ice she then slipped into the deep. The ice under water will keep her up right where she sits today.

Over her capacity, valuable commodity that once it gets wet it swells and in time sours. Grain shifts. The wetter or more moist it gets the more it weighs too. The rice packed in probably kept the wreck in tact.

That is because whether an object sinks or floats in water doesn't just depend on its weight or size. It also depends on its density. ... A cork, piece of wood, or Styrofoam floated because those materials have less density than water. All the objects that were less dense than water floated in the water!

The cargo filled the holds, so they didnt get blown apart by the compression of air in the wreck. Odds are waves were over the deck in -20f would have added more weight, plus water could have entered the hold in conditions like that. I doubt she had any chance of making port.

Here's what I think and why the ship was so pristine....... even in the mock up sinking, the ship sank bow heavy, which means it would have hit really hard in the bow on the floor of the lake, as we all seen, there was no damage to the bow of the ship, SO, how did she sink so perfectly? well, with the temperatures of Lake Huron, and the spray, the deck, mass, and everything iced up, as we all know, Ice floats, ice is also very heavy, BUT, with the 21,000 bushels of grain and then being saturated, adds even more weight, too much weight for the Ice to keep the vessel afloat, so, she slowly, and gracefully sank to the bottom and touching down very gently. as for the crew, they succumbed to the cold, froze to death, then with the currents were swept away once the ice packs cleared up and made a pack of wolves a very nice dinner.

The saw that clip everyone's talking about. There's no way they could've know where the drop spot was on relation to the wreck. The contact itself didn't do anything. There is over a century of organic buildup on the ship. The most it did was knock some silt and barnacles off.

The Vasa sunk on her maiden voyage off the coast of Stockholm in 1645 or so, was underwater and forgotten for 300 years and when rediscovered in 1950 and later salvaged, was in amazing shape. When you see it in the museum you don't believe that it was actually underwater for so long. water, under the right conditions, can preserve things very well!

You know nothing bout diving man, if you are 40 meters deep, thats the max without nitrox. If you are at 40m, you got 5 bar pressure on you. Per 10m 1 bar more. Without special equip its just deadly to go deeper than 40.

if you watch the first episode they were training for a potential incident as they were using a rebreather system to recycle carbon dioxide into oxygen for longer dives. To train you have to pretend to have an issue and that was really all he could do. The camera man in the same scene actually had an issue that they found out after the practice because his rebreather filter failed and he was breathing carbon dioxide for a few minutes and had to be given oxygen and wait for another dive. But yeah they could have used another shot instead of the training one

37:29 Ice forming at 16 tons an hour, he says. That's 533 pounds every minute. I'm not a marine hydrologist and I understand everything has to be dramatised and enlarged for TV, but I did spend a few years going to sea, and much of that time was on an oceanographic research ship in the high Arctic in the fall and early winter. I've chipped a fair bit of ice off of rails and winches and other gear on deck, and I can't see how that much ice would form EVERY MINUTE on a vessel that small. I'd say it's more likely that she was pooped by a large wave, or several, over the stern and with her low freeboard and any spring hatch she would have settled fairly quickly and on an even keel as she sank, not bow first like they did in the test tank or like the other wreck they dived. Interesting video though, all the same.

I work with grain and flour and can tell you it's like a sponge when it comes to moisture. It will drain the moisture from the air. If any moisture got into the product it wouldn't take much for the already overweighted ship to go completely over it's weight limit. Combine that with massive waves buffeting the ship and ice starting to possibly weigh it down and it's no real mystery that it sunk like rock.

Something not mentioned, which i think adds to the idea that she sank due to weight. The grain absorbs water. So you got all the water coming in over the sides, being absorbed by the grain. You cant get it out with any pump, no matter how hard you try.

How much air was trapped in the grain, tens of thousands of cubic feet most likely, and how quickly did it dissipate when she sank? Could the grain have released its companion air slowly enough to create a buoyancy suitable to take the ship gently to the bottom?

There can be one explanation why the ship is well preserved . Point no 1 : the ship is overloaded with grains with minus 30 and on top of it the hull would be coated with ice , adding to the weight of the ship, at this point the ship would have been flooded due to the storm. Now the goods which are only grains will be soaked that could double the weight , if the ship is well built then it most likely would have sunk vertically and the cold would have preserved the deck and hull

What did you weight the model with? Because it's not just about weight in the water, mass is important. If you matched the weight with sand, that's very different than corn when it hits the water.
