Pirate Ship Found By Wreck Hunters

Date: 1/10/2011

The wreckage of a ship thought to have belonged to Captain Morgan, the 17th-century British buccaneer, was found off Panama’s coast. Texas State University archaeologists diving near the Lajas Reef discovered a section of hull from what they believe to be Henry Morgan’s flagship, Satisfaction. The wreck contains numerous unopened cargo boxes and chests and appears to match the age and design of the five ships Morgan lost off the reef in 1671.
