Background

Wrecked in 1641 in the Silver Banks, off the Dominican Republic, this wreck was salvaged by William Phips in 1686-1688, by Burt Webber in 1978 and by Tracy Bowden in the 1990s. Jacques-Yves Cousteau's was also involved with the site in the 1970s. Timbers are reported to have been found, at the very least, by the last team of treasure hunters, under Tracy Bowden.
