    Zillah, Lake Superior

    Here is a short video clip of the Zillah. She sits at the bottom of Whitefish Bay, Lake Superior in 230 ffw and doesn't see many visitors, but is a really nice dive. It's not great video, but since there is really very little available on the Zillah I thought I would post it.

    Great video Dab!!

    At time 3:26 you have "Pump by Engine" It's actually a "Reciprocating Steam Generator" These were quite common for their time and although by today's standards are quite small they could quite adequately power the ship :)

    Regards,

    Lance
