The Ontario Heritage Act requires a permit to sonar scan shipwrecks such as the S.S. Edmund Fitzgerald. Go to www.boatnerd.com and check out their 7/28/05 archives, "No Commercial Dives Allowed on Fitzgerald." The report states, "The director of the Great Lakes Shipwrecks Museum on Whitefish Point near the sinking site admitted to an unlicensed dive in 2002. So earlier this year, the Ontario Ministry of Culture warned him and anyone else to stop commercial dives to the Fitzgerald." If you are interested in a copies of images of the GLSHS sonar scan of the Fitz, contact me with an e-mail address and I will send them to you.

Farnquist photographed bodies and removed pellets from the fitz. He has distributed these to family members. I have seen them.
