The Steven M. Selvick , a steel tug of 70 gross tons, 71 feet in length and 19 feet beam was intentionally sunk in the Alger Underwater Preserve on June 1, 1996 as a new historical attraction for SCUBA divers. It has also made a great habitat for fish. 

This tug was originally named the Loraine and then Cabot and played an important role in the construction of the Mackinac Bridge. It was then purchased by Selvick Marine and Towing out of Sturgeon Bay, WI. Upon the vessels retirement, she was sold to the preserve for $1.

She lies in approximately 65 feet of water. The pilot house starts at about 40 feet. down.  This is a great dive for intermediate to expert divers.
