Michigan boat captain finds 95-year-old message in a bottle: 'We were all in shock'
When boat captain Jennifer Dowker saw a small green bottle at the bottom of the Cheboygan River, she picked it up, thinking it might keep a prospective client interested in scuba diving.
Little did she know she had found something that would interest many more than just one client.
Dowker is the owner of Nautical North Family Adventures, which runs shipwreck tours and scuba diving lessons in Cheboygan, Michigan. Last week, while she was cleaning the bottom of her glass-bottomed boat, the Yankee Sunshine, she found a message in a bottle dated 1926.
Dowker told Fox News that she finds a lot of glass bottles and even has a collection, though she had never found a message in a bottle until last week.
