The lost wreckage of a ship belonging to 17th century pirate Captain Henry Morgan has been discovered in Panama, said a team of U.S. archaeologists -- and the maker of Captain Morgan rum.
Near the Lajas Reef, where Morgan lost five ships in 1671 including his flagship "Satisfaction," the team uncovered a portion of the starboard side of a wooden ship's hull and a series of unopened cargo boxes and chests encrusted in coral.



The cargo has yet to be opened, but Captain Morgan USA -- which sells the spiced rum named for the eponymous pirate -- is clearly hoping there's liquor in there.

That's just because I read a lot of news articles (and magazines etc). Not all of it is interesting sometimes I'm sure,but it's usually something that caught my attention for some reason or another. :)


I love stories about dives like this that find ship wrecks and even have footage or pictures to look at etc...very cool to me.

Don't know...but I do know that they think they are very close to finding and filming Octopus Giantus soon. Saw that on an episode of Monster Quest this morning.:wink2:
