Clip: Season 7 Episode 1 | 5m 21s

Maritime archeologist Tamara Thomsen explores the underwater shipwreck of a scow schooner that sank in 1890 a few miles off the coast of Sheboygan. She and her team from the Wisconsin Historical Society have catalogued and collected data on 752 vessels. If unable to reach a shipwreck by diving, they use a remotely-operated vehicle with a video camera.
