The Resting Place Of La Griffon Remains Unfound

The Great Lake's oldest shipwreck remains stubbornly undiscovered.

The Detroit Free Press: Experts: Shipwreck discovery not long-lost Griffin.

The search, and the hopes of many a diver and shipwreck hunter of finding the most elusive prize in the Great Lakes continue.

Swing and a miss in other words... Oh well! :-)

Yep, it's like searching for a needle in a haystack, only in the dark, in the cold, underwater, and with thousands of miles of lakescape to try and find it, and that's if it hasn't been buried completely under silt and is completely buried by now.

Has anyone talked to Dirk Pitt about this?

McGyver: Not that we know of. As an aside, Clive Cussler actually is a real-life ship-wreck hunter with his own search organization called NUMA (what else?) who has found lots of historic wrecks including.

He's quite the intrepid underwater explorer.
