J. C. Ford. This 172-foot package steamer was built in 1889. She caught fire, burned to the waterline, and exploded on November 26, 1924, leaving her badly broken up. The wreck is very accessible in just 5 to 15 feet of water off the westerly shore of Little Trout Island. The site is popular because much of her remains can be easily examined including a large 8 foot diameter propeller.
