Our Store

Shipping and handling charge within the continental US will be added at checkout.  Please contact us before ordering for S&H costs outside of the continental US.

All proceeds go to support the Straits of Mackinac Shipwreck Preserve, an all-volunteer, non-profit 501(c)3 organization.

You can also help us without making a purchase, just use the Donate button below, or select us using “Smile.Amazon.com”   You set this up via your Amazon.com account.  It doesn’t cost you anything, and Amazon will donate 0.5%  (1/2 of one percent) of your purchase amount to the charity of your choice.  Just search for “Straits of Mackinac Shipwreck Preserve” to select us.  We appreciate your support !

We needed to purchase larger, lighted buoys for most of our sites to meet new Coast Guard requirements under our new permits.  These buoys are about $750 each, with several already purchased and the donor’s name on select buoys. We’ll keep those names on display for a few years at least, if not the life of the buoys.  We have three more sites available for naming rights: McBrier, Northwest, and the (former) St Andrew.  Still not sure what the real name is for this wreck 🙁

Later we’ll need new buoys for the deepest shipwrecks on our permit, Eber Ward and Minneapolis, once we determine how to install the proper bottom system – it is much more difficult in deep water!  The Young, like the Stalker, will not likely be approved for the new buoys due to the location in high-traffic area.

Donations toward buoys, line, or hardware would be greatly appreciated !  Or have your name placed on one of the smaller buoys (for the current season) for a $100 donation.  We have to use the smaller buoys until we can rework the entire mooring to meet the permit requirements, using our older permits.  Our permits allow us to use the smaller buoys on the shallow sites, such as Albemarle, Henry Clay, Leviathan, Genesee Chief, C.H. Johnson, and Myrtie Ross.
