A tiny boat was discovered on a remote beach 27 years after it was launched by teachers

The boat was found near a remote island in Lake Superior 27 years after it was launched.

(CNN)A mystery from Lake Superior has been solved, after a tiny boat ended up on the remote shores of one of the Great Lakes.

The red, white and blue vessel was found at a remote area on Apostle Islands National Seashore in Wisconsin with a very intentional message on the bottom.
"I am traveling to the ocean. Please put me back in the water. Will you send information on your whereabouts to: Lakewood School Room 116 & 118 5207 N. Tischer Duluth, MN (scribbled out zip code) 53304," the message reads.
    There was no date, and no one knew where it came from until the school did a little digging.
    The inscription on the bottom of the tiny boat had no date, only instructions.
    It turns out two teachers, Brenda Schell and Bonnie Fritch, did a lesson on the book "Paddle-to-the-Sea" in 1993 and 1994 and two wooden boats were part of the lesson.
    "We mapped out the travels of the canoe through the Great Lakes," Fritch told the school, Duluth Public Schools ISD said in a recent Facebook post.
    "A friend of Brenda's made the boats for us and our classes painted them and added the message to the bottom. On our end of the year field trip for our Duluth unit we stopped at Brighton Beach to launch the boats."
    After almost 27 years, the boat was still in good shape making its way around the lake though, obviously, it's not known where it was the entire time.
    "I am not sure what happened to Brenda's boat but mine was spotted a year later up the North Shore. The people put a second coat of varnish on the boat and relaunched it. I thought we wouldn't hear any more about it. Amazing it is still out there," Fritch added.
