Christopher Columbus famously made his first voyage to the New World with three ships – Nina, Pinta and Santa Maria – but only two returned to Spain. In the year before Christmas, the sailor handed over the wheel to an unreliable cabin boy who was aboard the San Maria steering, who was soon aboard a coral reef near Haiti. With the help of local workers, the crewmen were able to evacuate their cargo, but the next day it sank and may have been burned later by irrigation. Its precise location has been lost from history. The title of water finder Barry Clifford was made in 2002 after the discovery of Santa Maria using information from the Columbus Journal, but after an examination by UNESCO experts, the ruins belonged to a different ship in the 6th or 5th century.
On July 7, a few days after successfully delivering the first US civilian bomb to the island of Tinyar, the USS Indianapolis was nearly halted by a double torpedo strike from Japanese submarine I-1. The estimated heavy cruiser disappears beneath the surface within minutes, with about 3 seamen. The remaining four sailors have been left helplessly tied in shark-free waters in the Philippine Sea. At that time they were accidentally spotted by a navy plane and rescued four days later, with more than 5 but heavy attacks and attacks on the white search of the ocean. The sinking of Indianapolis is thought to be the worst American fleet of World War II. Yet despite multiple expeditions using gold and water vehicles, shipwrecks were not found. Part of the problem lies in the extreme depth of the search area. By some estimates, the cruiser is supposed to have a tie that has gone down to 120 feet underwater.
HMS Endeavor is best known for carrying Captain James Cook on his maiden voyage during his first voyage of discovery from 1 to 5. The ship was the first European ship to visit Australia’s east coast and circumnavigate New Zealand, but after a few years back home, it was secretly sold by a private buyer and was named Lord Sandwich. Later chartered by the British Royal Navy and deployed to New England during the American Revolution. At Newport Harbor, Rhode Island, it became one of four ships, which deliberately sank to create a blockade against the French fleet. The shipwreck remains remains the target of an ongoing search by the Rhode Island Marine Archeology Project and the Australian National Maritime Museum, which has spent years mapping and exploring sand-loaded waters around Newport. As of this year, the team has been on two-thirds of scaled ships, but they have not yet found evidence of which of them is Cook’s long-lost endeavor.
The first naval vessel to cruise the Great Lakes, Griffin was one of three cargo vessels built by French explorer Ren-Robert Cavalier, Sieur de la Salle, during the first expedition to the North American frontier. La Salla used Griffin to travel along the Niagara River and discover parts of Lake Erie, Lake Huron and Lake Michigan, but disappeared on September 7 after sailing from present-day Green Bay with six crewmen and cargoes including Fergus. Its true fate remains a mystery, though it is generally believed that the ship may be set in a storm or carried out by a rebel crew. Investigators have tried to track his underwater grave, but none of their discoveries have confirmed the so-called “Great Lakes Ship Breakbreaks of Public Grill.” One of the most recent false alarms came in the 21st, when two Mozilla Lake vessels discovered to have been discovered in the water. Unfortunately, further investigations have shown that there were probably broken steam-powered vessels in the 7th or 20th century.
In 8, Ernest Shackleton sailed from England at the Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition to the South Pole. The Irish-born explorer expected Antarctica’s first land crossing, but before he set foot on the continent, his ship, the Endurance Weddle, was stuck in heavy pack ice in the sea. True to its name, the wood barquitine survived 6 months in the frozen air, and finally the pressure broke its fork and sent it to the seafloor Tumblr. While Shackleton later led his crew to safety via a dangerous 5-mile journey on a life boat, the deepest patience to this day remains exhausting. The ship is now hiding at a depth of 3 feet under 5 feet of snow. Drinking water supply expert David Mearns and Titanic explorer Robert Ballard have expressed interest in hunting, but neither team has joined forces to raise money for the Antarctic expedition.
Few continental naval vessels have a more distinguished war record than Bonhomme Richard. A French donation for Patriot cause, the frigate set was removed in 1 under Captain John Paul Jones and captured by British ships within weeks. On 23 September he attacked HMS Serpis and another Royal Navy navy in a fierce battle off the northeast coast of England. A preliminary call to life with the immortal words “Serapis after hours of war. Unfortunately, his victory came for Richard, who caught fire during the exchange and took a few shots under his water. After trying to spend 36 hours, Jones and his crew reluctantly abandoned the ship. Submerges in the murky waters of the North Sea. The US Navy and other writers and adventurers Clive Cussler. Some of the Goodman Richards description found the wreckage, but none of them have been identified as missing.
