RH Rea

Trail Information

The136ft schooner RH Rae was built for the trans-Atlantic trade by the Rae Brothers of Hamilton, Ontario, Canada in 1857. She capsized in 1858 during a squall and was declared a total loss after a salvage attempt failed.

Located again in 1888 efforts to raise her were abandoned and she was forgotten about until 1961 when she was discovered again.  Cousteau visited the site during his Great Lakes expedition in 1980.
