A.E. VICKERY
The Vickery is a three-mast schooner that was built in 1861, and launched under the name of J.B. Penfield in the State of New York. Renamed A.E. Vickery on February 25, 1884, the boat, on its way to the town of Prescott transporting 21 000 bushels of corn hit a rock and sank. The size of the wreck is impressive. You can see several interesting pieces such as the stove on the stern, main mast at the starboard stern, as well as the rudder. Marine life is abundant. Vickery
