U. S. ENGINEERS WILL REMOVE WRECKS
Maj. Graham D. Fitch, United States Engineer at Duluth, has made a report showing that the wrecked steamer NlMICK lies about 11 miles west of Whitefish Point about a mile in from the deep vessel course. The hull seems to be nearly gone and none of the cargo is in sight. The wreck is not marked and Maj. Fitch is taking steps to have it removed.
The steel steamer SAVONA, with a cargo of iron ore, wrecked in September, 1806, lies in 18 to 23 feer of water about 1-5/8 miles east by north of Sand Island Light, Apostle Islands. The hull is well flattened out and no deck plates could be distinguished by sounding. The owners having failed to remove the wreck, action will be taken by the United States Engineer at Duluth.
