What is the mataafa
What is the Mataafa?

Mataafa was not the first or last wreck of the November 27, 1905 storm. It was very dramatic, because it occurred in full view of the citizens of Duluth. Night fell before a rescue could be attempted, and nine men froze or were drowned during the night. The Great Lakes Maritime History Project has many pictures captured by photographer, Hugh McKenzie.

What is the socrates
What is the Socrates?

The Socrates dragged anchor during a November gale. Before she could get her engines fired up, she was on the beach. Fortunately, the bottom is sand. She became a major tourist attraction for over a week. It took 23 tugs to eventually pull her free. The Socrates still visits the Twin Ports under a different name.

What is CanadaLake Superior?

Lake Superior was given this name because of the speed with which storms sweep across the lake, and because ships and people 'magically' disappear, never to be seen again. The lake can also be beguilingly beautiful, even at its most vicious.
