Welcome to the Lake Electronics Home Page, The Great Lakes are our specialty. We focus on Historical information about the Great Lakes, especially 19th century shipping. Shipwrecks on Lake Superior, Lake Michigan, Lake Huron, Lake Erie and Lake Ontario are fantastic time capsules capturing an important segment of our past. Underwater searches utilizing side-scanning sonar equipment have located hundreds of shipwrecks. Underwater archaeology in the form of site documentation is a major activity of many Scuba diving organizations. See the Features page for more about this. Research studies collect the background and tell the story of these steamers, schooners and barges of our past. Within the pages of our website you will learn more about this fascinating period of our past.
