The Ontario was a 22-gun snow-rigged warship, built to counter the Patriot threat on Lake Ontario during the Revolutionary War, shown here emerging from her naval base. Sunk in a hurricane with no survivors the same year she was launched. This ship made world news in 2008 when she was located in superb condition upright on the bottom of the Lake.
