Dive Team Discovers 1800s-Era Steamboat At Bottom Of Lake





A sheriff's dive team discovered what is believed to be a late-1800s era steamboat at the bottom of a Central Florida lake during a training exercise last month.

The Lake County sheriff's dive team found the boat at the bottom of Lake Minneola in the lake's southwest corner in Clermont while training with side-scan sonar, which they recently acquired.

The sonar is a piece of equipment that is dragged by a boat and projects images of the underwater environment.
