Location description: Our chartered Wrecks:
Keystorm
Roy A. Jodery
A.E. Vickery
Keystorm
This wreck is one of the most popular in Ontario. The steel freighter lies on its starboard side at a depth of 20` to 120` just south of the shipping channel off Mallorytown Landing west of Brockville. The Keystorm was built in Wellsend, England in 1908 for a Montreal-based company. It weighed over 2300 tonnes with a length of 256` and a beam of 43`. The Keystorm remains in good condition and is accessible to all levels of divers.
The Keystorm sank, without fatality within minutes of hitting Outer Scowl island shoal in a thick fog on Oct 12, 1912. She was on her way from Genesse Dock at Charlotte N.Y. carrying a cargo of 2230 tons of Bituminous coal under the command of Captain L. Daigult.
Roy A. Jodery
The Roy A. Jodery wreck is in deep, dark waters with considerable current and is not suitable for divers without proper training. This relatively modern steel freighter lies on a ledge with her stern at a depth of 242` and her bow at 150` just south of Wellesley Island. The freighter was part of the Algoma Steel fleet untill she struck a shallow just off Alexandria Bay, N.Y. on Nov 20, 1972 while attempting to deliver 20 000 tonnes of steel to Detroit. The impact tore the keel of the ship causing it to sink in less than four hours. The captain and all 29 crew memebers survived, after attemting to beach the ship on the shores of Wellesley Island.
In 1998, the american coast guard hired an underwater contractor to investigate the appearace of what looked to be fuel or oil surfacing above the wreck. The divers found eight barrels of oil on the stern deck at around 165`, these were later removed.
The Roy A. Jodery is in very good condition and you can see a fracture in the center of the hull. On the bow section, the tear from the impact with the shallow and other damage caused by its sinking are also visible.
Before mooring at the dive site we must chek into the United States customs, so please bring proper identification.
A.E. Vickery
The A.E. Vickery is a wooden three masted schooner with dimentions of 136.2` x 26.2` x 10.8`. She lies upright in 60` - 125` of water just off Rock Island shoal. The sten of the Vickery hangs over a ledge, preserving its wooden rudder.
Originally named J.B. Penfield and renamed in 1884, the Vickery was launched in July 1861 at Three Mile Bay, N.Y. Carrying a cargo of 21 000 bushels of corn, destined for Wisers distillery in Prescott, Ontario on August 17th 1889, the schooner struck a rock while entering the American `Narrows`. There were no fatalities.
The surface current at the dive site is considerable, but lessens as you decend to the wreck itself. Several interesting items are at the stern of the ship, including the stove and intact rudder. The ship is mostly covered in zebra musscles.
