A victim of the 1692 earthquake that destroyed Port Royal, Jamaica, this wreck is believed to be that of the 5th rate English warship HMS Swan, which was being careened at the time. It came to rest amid the ruins of a brick building. First futtocks on this hull stopped 51 cm short of the keel centerline. 1
