A revamp of an older story bout a Spanish Galleon.
Spoke to Milton the other day from Miltons Vintage. The story goes that on his property along the west coast close to a river mouth there is a Spanish Galleon buried 55 feet in mud.
At a great cost they had a Diamometer (think thats what it was) brought over from Oz. Then they flew over the site in a plane and recorded it. They have a colour printout of it.
It has connons on board and one side of the ship is blown out a bit or slightly perished.
They drilled down into it at one stage and pulled Teak from one of the decks.
He went on to say that although they have been offered big dollars for the rights to film the salvage - they were doubtful as to how well this would be received by the public...
Apparently a fleet of Spanish ships left Spain in 1531 which coincides with this find.
His treasure hunting mate has all the info and pics over on the west coast so me thinks i should take a road trip over to see him at some stage. Gather up some treasure stories while i'm at it.
So there you have it. There are other shipwrecks off shore but this one is safe in the mud.
