As a favorite dive of the great lakes fleet, I believe that the John J. Boland, Jr. deserves its spot among the marvelous sites featured here on eDiving. I have a few resources which I hope will be of use in the creation of such a site.

Bathymetric Map of the region, with site marked.

Links to photo albums with many photos of the wreck through many angles.

thank you for the info, but ... to get started we need high resolution bathymetric data (I think it is available on NOAA site) and deck plans of the ship

Here's the new maps, I couldn't attach the file. As for the deck plans, I am currently talking with some experts in Lake Erie wrecks, who should be able to get me some. I'll keep you posted.
