Shipwreck Found Deep In The Gulf Of Mexico

View video footage captured by the Little Hercules remotely operated vehicle (ROV) and camera platform during the April 26 ROV dive from NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer during the Gulf of Mexico Expedition 2012.

The dive was conducted at site 15577 – a recently mapped but never-before seen shipwreck in the western Gulf of Mexico. The dive revealed the remnants of a copper-sheathed sailing ship, likely from the early to mid-19th century.

While most of the wood has since disintegrated, the oxidized copper sheathing remained along with a variety of artifacts.

These included plates, glass bottles, guns, cannons, the ship’s stove, navigational instruments, and anchors.

This was a spectacular dive that represented a truly remarkable find. Video courtesy of NOAA Okeanos Explorer Program, Gulf of Mexico Expedition 2012.

Minelab CTX 3030 -Discriminator Advantages

The CTX 3030 has a ton of great features, some of which haven't been seen in a metal detector before.

I really think this will be the machine of the year! My only concern would be that I hope Minelab has ironed out the "fit & finish" problems that I had with my Excalibur II.

Although the Excalibur II is a wonderful underwater metal detector, I was extremely disappointed with some of the small issues that came up on my machine and my Treasure hunting partner's Excal II as well.

I expected a lot more out of a $1200 Metal Detector when it comes to build quality, lets just hope that its not a problem with the CTX 3030 ? ..
