PORT SANILAC (AP) - Cargo removed from a
'K/5-year-old Lake Huron shipwreck is stirring an
emotional debate between spot divers and historians
over the ethics of the state-approved operation.
Cargo such as corked whiskey bottles and artifacts,
including the ship's bell and navigation lights, already
1. ave been removed from the vessel by commercial
divers who have a state salvage permit.
The permit allows Freedom Marine Ltd. of
AVancouver, British Columbia, to recover and sell cargo
,And artifacts from the Regina, described as a floating
.hardware store that sank in the Great Storm of 1913.
t The debate centers on whether the cargo should be
removed, documented for historical purposes and later
gold, or left undisturbed for those in the state's $40
million recreational diving industry to witness in its
tnatural state.

John Halsey, archaeologoist for the Michigan
Department of State, bureau of history, said part of the
rationale in granting the salvage permit was that
recreational divers eventually would pilfer the cargo
We were faced with the position of trying to
preserve something that was being nickeled and dimed
by divers," Halsey said.
"At least we'll know what was on it, how it was
packed. We don't have archaeologists to do it for us."
Halsey said the wreck is historically significant
because its cargo offers a glimpse of life in the early
1900s. Most Great Lakes shipwrecks contain iron ore,
stone or coal, but the Regina was a packet freighter
that sold wares such as hand lotion and horseshoes in
ports along the waterway.
