This is a model of the schooner Wells Burt which sunk in the Great Lakes en route to Chicago in 1883. She was a bulk carrier built by the Detroit Dry Dock Co. and launched in 1873. She now lies in forty feet of water and is largely intact, making the wreck a popular site for divers. Be advised that this model is not 100% accurate. Reference art was sparse and often contradictory, so some creative license was required.
