About Us

Shotline Divers is a Marine Cultural Heritage research group.  We're not just divers looking for treasure, We're researchers looking for the right answer. We're explorers using different methods other than mowing the lawn with a bottom sounder. 

It's about getting the right answer, the best information possible, The Who, Where, and How and present publically open sites with site maps and information.

This Day In History

1892 JOHN BURT (3-mast wooden schooner, 138 foot, 348 gross tons, built-in 1871, at Detroit, Michigan) was carrying grain in a strong northwest gale. Her rudder broke and she was blown past the mouth of Oswego harbor and was driven hard aground. Two died when the vessel struck. The U.S. Lifesaving Service rescued the remaining five crewmembers. The vessel quickly broke up in the waves. (128)
