The Harvey J Kendall was launched April 10, 1892 at Marine City, (Lake St. Clair area) Michigan. At 141.6 ft. x 31ft. x 9 ft., this wooden steam barge was converted to a self unloading freighter in 1917 at Ogdensburg NY. Your diving visit will find the railroad tracks inside the holds from the self unloading mechanism and of interest is the large boiler that remains from the salvaging attempts.

Located in Button Bay, southeast side of Wolfe Island, Cape Vincent ferry landing and Hinckley Flats. The Kendall was scuttled in Button Bay just across from Cape Vincent NY and is a shallow dive.
