"I've been on literally thousands of shipwrecks in my career," Beeker said. "This is one of the first sites I've been on where I haven't seen any looting. We've got a shipwreck in crystal clear, pristine water that's amazingly untouched. We want to keep it that way, so we made the announcement now to ensure the site's protection from looters."
Maybe the Captain took all the gold and silver but left the rest of what was on the ship......
Mikey, that's exactly what happened. In fact, Kidd and his crew had nearly a month to strip her of anything they thought valuable after they scuttled her in the Dominican shallows.
There was a great story on this in this morning's Indianapolis Star. The cool thing is that, if the IU team can get the site protected, there are plans to turn it into an underwater museum of sorts.
I love this stuff. I've been a pirate junkie for years.
