Shipwrecked in the red gold of autumn on Lake Michigan
This sailboat ran aground late August 2016 along the windswept upper shores of Lake Michigan, the land of the "crooked tree" to the native Americans, on account of their using the trees that branched out from the steep bluffs that mark this shoreline as aids to navigation. Removing the vessel has posed quite a dilemma to area salvage companies, until now the National Guard in the region is planning top use it as a practice training mission, turning one man's hard luck into another man's learning.
