Captain Morgan Shipwreck, Rio Chagres, Panama
In 2008 we worked with Jim Delgado and Fritz Hanselmann to discover and ground truth a shipwreck in the mouth of the Chagres River in Panama. The wreck was suspected to have belonged to Captain Henry who famously lost a ship on his way to sack Panama City in 1671. We found the wreck and eventually returned to recover some cannon, currently under conservation.
