The mystery of the S.S. Fitzgerald has haunted the public for almost 50 years. What really happened to the ship and her entire 29 man crew during that terrible storm on November 10, 1975? Did she break in two on the surface due to storm stress, strike an uncharted reef, ri apart because of design or maintenance faults, or did something else sink her? Frederick Stonehouse has studied the Fitzgerald mystery since the day she plunged to the bottom of Lake Superior. While there are no provable answers, his conclusions evolved as more information gradually became available. He provides here an honest and straightforward appraisal of all the evidence and theories to enable readers to reach their own conclusions.
