ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) -- The shipwreck discovery team of Jim Kennard, Roger Pawlowski, and Roland “Chip” Stevens have released a new book called Shipwrecks of Lake Ontario: A Journey of Discovery.

The group came by Rochester in Focus to share their stories.


In the book, they talk about their discovery of the HMS Ontario, believed to be the oldest shipwreck ever found in the Great Lakes and the oldest fully-intact British warship that exists in the world.  

It is among 35 other stories of shipwreck discoveries off the southern shore of Lake Ontario.
