Lake Michigan has thousands of lost shipwrecks hidden beneath its waves. From the first ship to ever sail upon its waters to the giant Carl D Bradley, mystery surrounds most of the ships that lie quietly beneath. Ric Mixter will explore these wrecks in new detail, including a look at the rescue of the Francisco Morazon off South Manitou Island along with rare interviews with the survivors of the only whaleback shipwreck in Lake Michigan. Ric is the only presenter with interviews from the survivors of the 1940 Armistice Day storm and exclusive footage of the rescue of the crew of the Novadoc. You'll be captivated not only by the eyewitness testimony but by Ric's passion for interviewing these men and rescuers as well as diving beneath the surface to find clues to the mysteries.
