LAKE ERIE/CLEVELAND AREA OBSTRUCTION

We sailed for many years - a long time ago - in the Cleveland area. The wreck in 54 feet depth, noted off AVON PT at 41,34.156 N x 081,58.199 N had a metal mast spire that was close to the surface. Charts say 30 feet clear but the skipper managed to take a chunk of lead off the keel. I saw it once in calm weather - spooky looking menace from the depths. It was stored as an alarmed instant way-point on the Loran. We always passed it wide while racing. There was talk of having it made safe. Does anyone know of this is still there or if the threat has been removed?
