The TROY was built at Marine City, MI in 1872 by David Lester and is believed to have served as a lumber carrier for most of her career on the Great Lakes. Her dimensions were: length, 187.4 feet; beam, 30.6 feet; hull depth, 10.2 feet; and gross tonnage, 486 tons. Her final owner was the Kreetan Company of Drummond Island, which was a lumber company with headquarters and a lumber mill located at Scammon Cove, on the south and east side of Drummond Island. The vessel was reported as abandoned at the northeast corner of Scammon Cove in 1920. One report states that the vessel burned at the dock in Scammon Cove, circa 1920.

Only the lower hull timbers remain. This wreck is of little interest to divers, but may be of interest to snorklers and kayakers. West of the wreck site there is a huge debris filled area that consists of residue and cuttings from the saw mill, numerous lumbering and saw mill artifacts and the remains of a once the extensive Kreetan Company lumber docks.
The wreck lies in 5-10 feet of water in the north eastern corner of Scammon Cove a few yards west of the Wayfarers Mart dock. Lat/Long Coordinates are:
