To show you what that many miles out can look like, 3 gps grid square here is slightly less than 3 miles.

I found a dump site, just north a little on topo. Wonder what could have been dumped at the underwater site?

Took time to calculate actual distance on topo pin, to be exact, 4 miles even off shore.

Usually designated 'dump sites' are areas that have been used for dredge spoils (sand or mud) to clear inlets or channels. There are numerous areas off the various ports on the West Coast. Usually a distance offshore to not effect fisheries. Believe it or not the recently discovered containers of DDT off L.A. and in the past the radioactive containers off S.F. were dumped decades ago and not marked on charts as 'dump sites' even now.

In Florida, if from the right location, should translate to treasure.

Ok sounds good! Reason I asked, another shipwreck hunter asked me just the other day. I told them you probably still do have the boat.

I hear that, think it was Mo (?} testing the new Fisher pulse back in the good old days, "we could be in the aluminum recycling business."

Whay year of Spanish fleet are the wrecks of? Can't seem to find searching. One printed reference said 1714, probably was a miss-print.

Spanish Royal Navy shipyard built new ships in 1714. I see, maybe was only 1 ship.
