Probing Begins Of Possible La Griffon Wrecksite

So Far, Libert's expedition has found timbers sticking up in Lake Michigan that may indeed prove to be the masts from the Griffin.

Whatever it may prove to be, its looking more and more like a shipwreck, but it's deeper than they anticipated.

Divers this weekend opened a pit at the base of a wooden beam that juts nearly 11 feet from the lake bottom, believing it could be a section of the vessel, the rest presumably entombed in mud. They picked up the pace Monday with more powerful equipment after a weekend of probing showed that whatever is buried is deeper than sonar readings indicated.

U.S. and French experts insist it is too early to say whether there’s a shipwreck — let alone the Griffin. But anticipation is building at the prospect of solving a maritime puzzle that’s more than three centuries old.

Stay tuned, as it looks like they're going to keep on digging until they can prove or disprove that this is the wreck of the Griffin.

Interesting. Trying to dig up and old ship and Jimmy Hoffa at the same time...

They haven't looked for him on La Griffon yet, maybe they can get the FBI to subsidize the wreck exploration.

I heard they are digging up a playing field near Detroit on a mobster's tip.
