"It's in excellent condition!" - Divers emerged from the cold waters of Lake Michigan to inform the crew that a great wooden ship that was supposed to have gone down in the area has been found.

"It's remarkable considering the time that has passed", stated Harry Linz of National Geographic. "We're going to take our time and place it in a near issue of our magazine, make a movie for the Cable Channel and might use it at IMAX."

While answering questions by WLOD in Milwaukee, one of the divers, Dan Friezier told the station that this was a major discovery because of the sheer size of the wooden giant.

"Of course we checked for any signs of life the first thing but found no one. The pecking noise we heard earlier turned out to be a pecker fish nipping at one of our diver's gear. Of course, later on we realized that there would be no metal sounding pecking from inside a wooden ship.

Finding the 350-foot-long L.R. Doty was important because it was the largest wooden ship that remained unaccounted for, said Arnold "Bushy" Bushman, the president of the Wisconsin Underwater Bigass Ship Discoverer Association.

"I just wished someone had survived to tell their story."
