The finished Novadoc.
Okay, Owen's got me back shipbuilding. We are now working on the Novadoc, a canal freighter that sank very close to my grandmother's place on Lake Michigan during the Armistice Day storm of 1940. Here are some photos.
This will be a much smaller model. We building it 1:350 like the others for a true sense of scale. That makes the Novadoc a little under 9 inces long (our Edmund Fitzgerald is 25" and our Titanic is 30").
The Novadoc sank in very shallow water; for some time it was above the waterline. I have visited the site several times, and it has always been underwater as long as I have been alive. It's a dive spot for Great Lakes shipwrecks. Only 15 feet underwater, the wreck is easy to get to but mostly covered by Lake Michigan's sandy bottom.
