A treacherous, wind blown sea can sometimes lead to near disaster for a maritime crew. During an 1854's violent storm on Lake Michigan, Captain George Tifft and fellow seaman were driven toward the beach near Lake Betsie. Tifft, with years of experience at the helm, and a bit of luck, was able to ride the crest of a wave over a shallow inlet to Lake Betsie. The captain and crew survived the scare and discovered a wonderful harbor.
