Cort, Henry

Originally named the Pillsbury, the Cort was built in 1892 at Superior, WI.  A 320′ whaleback steamer, the Henry Cort was stranded along the Muskegon Breakwall of Lake Michigan on Nov. 30, 1934. The crew survived, but one rescuer was lost in the storm.

The wreck is broken and twisted, and is right along the outside of the north breakwall. This is a novice dive.
