Columbus' Santa Maria ship wreck found?

11 posts in this topic

More than five centuries after Christopher Columbus's flagship, the Santa Maria, was wrecked in the Caribbean, archaeological investigators think they may have discovered the vessel's long-lost remains - lying at the bottom of the sea off the north coast of Haiti. It's likely to be one of the world's most important underwater archaeological discoveries.

Either they built a small fort or the ship was HUGE! The Santa MAria couldn't have sank that quickly if there was time to strip it.

Hi, Err, yes it could if they took out some of the bulkheads and then it was holed beneath the waterline,there would be nothing to delay the water rushing through the ship and it would quickly fill up.Remember Titanic when the water went over the top of the bulkheads as they weren't built high enough.

What could possibly be left at the site to indicate it was the Santa Maria? All goods of practical worth would have been stripped off, as well as the signature wood above the water line. Perhaps the wood itself, or maybe the craftsmanship, could indicate a construction date?

Do we know where the Fort they built was? If it is very close, that would be a good sign.

It's an alien ship.

Hopefully the ballast stones preserved enough of the ship's structure and wood to help narrow down the type of ship and it's origins.

It seems they claimed to have found her a few times now, though.

This area used to be a heavy trade route, and may well be one of the regular trading fleet that sunk.

It's an alien ship.

So falling stars are in reality alien spaceships built out of wood entering the atmosphere? And here I am being a sucker to believe it's falling man-made debris or small meteors.

If they could find a cannon it might be be an indication of the era it was made,and Countries cannons were styled differently with different markings on them.

If they find a cannon, it is 100% not the Santa Maria. They stripped it down to the bones before sinking it.
