Studied extensively during a licensed archaeological project led by Jim Garrington of Shark Marine and the Ontario Marine Heritage Committee members, the wreck remains unidentified. One possibility is the ‘Henry Clay,’ which sank on its maiden voyage. Research, however, revealed that no enrolment data seems to exist for this vessel. So, a comparison between historical data and data recovered during the archaeological project is not possible. For now, the wreck remains named ‘The Tiller Wreck’ and is enjoyed by many.
