The Capitana was the largest Spanish galleon built in the New World. When she sank off Ecuador's coast in 1652, she was carrying 600 passengers and $500,000,000 in silver, in Season 5, Episode 6, "Lost Riches of The Capitana."
I feel like there should be a follow up story. How much more was recovered? How much total? Is there still treasure laying under the ship’s timbers? How much did the finder receive in total? Is the money still flowing to their family?

Koko,
Thanks for posting that vid.
Brought back many memories of that adventure with my crew.

Don, How about a story or two that is not in the video?
