Spanish Galleon Found

Date: 2/6/2009

Tom Gidus of Gold Coast Explorations in Florida reported that his team has discovered a shipwreck off the east coast of Florida, USA, that dates to the early 17th century. The team conducted a nonintrusive remote sensing survey using a magnetometer and metal detectors in an area 14 miles offshore in Indian River County. A total of 18 cannons were located between the main site and the end of the debris trail confirming the ship had broken up slowly as it moved north with the current.
