Shipwreck 15577 Dive Highlights July 22

This is a highlight album of our dive from July 22, 2013. Hercules and Argus were exploring a possible 19th century shipwreck located 170 miles off of Galveston, TX in the Gulf of Mexico. Hercules recovered musket butt plates, a leather case, jacket, and spoon which were placed in a collection box using a scoop device constructed by on board ROV technicians. An elevator, deployed earlier from the Nautilus, was used for additional artifact collection purposes.
