Emanuel Point (ca. 1559)
About forty percent of the entire hull was uncovered for interpretation during two intense campaigns. The study of those timbers has not yet been completed. A final report with additional information is being prepared for publication. At this stage, only the ends of the hull have been studied, so the framing plan and other central details remain unknown. All frames in evidence were canted. The hull was not uncovered far enough aft to reveal square frames. Among the finds were filling pieces between frames, two port covers, a stemson, footwales, an anchor, a rudder and rudder hardware, and a cross-bow. The hull was sheathed in lead. 1
