Background

May be one of two small ships lost in Bermuda in 1639. It was salvaged by Bermudan wreckers soon after its loss. Found by Teddy Tucker in 1959, it was salvaged by treasure hunters and virtually no information remains. It is not known if it had any hull remains and none of the salvage items are listed.
