I rarely hear anybody talking about Pirates chasing off Spanish salvage crews. If Spanish salvage crews worked the site surely Pirates would have soon followed. Unfortunately Pirates may not have been able to write so we have no way of knowing what % they salvaged. Luckily they left some treasure for us current day privateers to salvage from Davey Jones Locker.
Are you kidding me enrada ? There are several accounts of pirates attacking the salvage camps of the 1715 fleet. One famous attack was the pirate Henry Jennings attacking the salvage camp. And he recovered over 300,000 pesos in treasure and retired in Jamaica.
