"On Friday [of last week], commercial divers hired by Mr. Libert and his organization, the Great Lakes Exploration Group, began dredging the lake bed adjacent to the beam for the first time. That work continued through Tuesday and has revealed that the beam gets thicker as it goes down, that it was hewed from a tree trunk, that it is at least 20 feet long and that it may well be the bowsprit of a ship — and a very old one at that, based on the 20 feet of compacted sediment it is sitting in."
"Probes used on Monday confirmed that there is a larger object below the beam, which the team of experts hopes and maintains might be a shipwreck — though whether it is the Griffin is not yet known."
