Coming Wednesday: Sink the Welcome?

TRAVERSE CITY — A dilapidated replica of a centuries-old British sailing ship could be sitting on the bottom of Grand Traverse Bay next year should no better options arise.

The Maritime Heritage Alliance board is seeking a state permit to sink the deteriorating 55-foot-long ship, the Welcome, in the bay.  The group also asked the Grand Traverse Bay Underwater Preserve Council to find a place for it on the bay floor, said Rod Jones, Maritime Heritage Alliance president.
