The Barbara Lyn was originally lost on October 1st, 1990 about 12 miles north of Pte. Aux Barges in a storm. The tug sunk in about 208 feet of water. In 2014, a salvage attempt was made on the tug and the tug was successfully raised to the surface. However, once brought to the surface the tug was grounded off of Port Austin as a storm and bad weather moved in. The subsequent storm destroyed the pilothouse and re-sunk the tug in 20 ft of water.
