    Ivan, no worries..it happens to us all one time or another.

    I'm in no position to ever pursue such an adventure, but it does
    sound exciting.

    More evidence.

    I was hoping to see the map. I love seeing how they drew the coastline compared to the accuracy of today's maps.

    Thanks, Ivan and Darren. Really interesting to have corroboration like that.

    Is that the ship at the mouth of the Matanzas on Darren's map.

    Very cool- I like to see the sharing of maps and information, even from my armchair approach! I'll keep an eye out for more info on this one and post if I find anything.

    Cheers;

    That is exactly what I am speaking of .. this map was made a mere 13 years after the 1715 shipwrecks .. often Dutch ships ‘fished’ treasure shipwrecks with grapple hooks to snag chests of treasure .. in salmons sept 20th 1715 to the king he noted .. of the 2 missing gallone’s there is little doubt that they sank on the high seas because wreckage of a large vessel or vessels was found on the north shore of st Augustine

    noted I shared this info with dr lyons at the last cook out ...he was quite interested to say the least...

    this is my public gift to my 1715 fleet ship salvaging friends----now that the lord has seen fit to spare me for a bit longer --- I think a thank you offering is fitting --enjoy ---so much info so few buyers of it ...LOL how am I ever to hit it rich? a book maybe or film?

    Don't sell it cheap then. Get at least $29.95 for it!
