Cape Saint Anthony, Cabo San Antonio, Punta Rasa
Topic: Lighthouses & Shipwrecks
Cabo San Antonio Lighthouse
My latest trip to Saint Anthony Cape Lighthouse, located in a very special geography, for its cape side location to the St. Anthony cape northern point ends in a perfect 90° angle, going out on Point Rasa, hence the common reference to the cape as St Anthony wall. Filled with history and culture this area was discovered in one of Magellan's trips towards the end of the world and this place was discovered by the mother-ship, St Anthony. Surrounded by an unspoiled natural paradise of woods and dunes, St Anthony is also the perfect location for some insight bonding with nature and eco tourism.

Shipwrecks in the South Atlantic. Argentina
Topic: Lighthouses & Shipwrecks

A new discovery delights shipwrecks passionate. Shipwrecks in the South Atlantic. Argentina

 

Just a couple of days ago, in the lovely beaches of Puerto Madryn archeological experts finally discovered a ship that wrecked in these coasts back in the 19th century. Apparently this Welsh embankment used for sea wolves’ hunting was set on fire in 1850 and detoured towards the coast because of it.

Experts in sub aquatic archeology, from the National Anthropological Institute are currently analyzing the remains of this wooden ship that have been buried in sand for the last couple of centuries.

The first part of the ship was discovered back in 2003, and it was only during the past week hen the total structure was unveiled in the coasts of New Gulf.

The research work that today is paying off with this amazing discovery was first triggered by an accidental finding back in 2001 when Fernando Coronato, who is part of the Punta Cuevas Association, found a wooden board belonging to this ship when he was strolling along the beachside.

 

The information available so far shows that the wood implied in the construction of the ship is Pine native from the East Coast of the United States. And while the first hypothesis of the anthropologists was that this was an American ship, this is currently under observation, thinking that may be the origin of the ship does not imply the origin of the materials used to build it.


All of the findings are currently being protected from erosion in site, in the meantime the local government decides whether the remains will be transported or conserved in current location.

The area of the
New Gulf, alike the waters of the St Joseph Gulf are very famous because of the many shipwrecks that populate their coasts. This is deeply linked to the important economical and colonization traffic that took place back in mid 1800s.

The director of the Sub Aquatic program of archeology Dr Dolores Elkin says that approximately 30 shipwrecks of the area of Chubut were discovered by specialists in recent times and are currently undergoing more research projects.

Touring in and around Buenos Aires,docks and building, as well as the River Plate's Martin Garcia Island and the South Atlantic sea coast for a 12 wonderful days of adventure and discovery....
Argentina's lighthouses are a wonderful trademark to this broad and beautiful land. It shouldn't be an other way for a "discovered" territory. It was one of the first constructions to be done when arriving to main land, in order to guide the upcoming travelers, these were rough and precarious, made out of wood and sometimes just a fire on the coast. As those initial ports began to transform into bigger and more important cities, as technology in terms of illumination evolved, these precarious lighthouses began to be transformed and converted into architectural icons, impressive lighthouses, that enlighten the shores of the "new" continent. Serving as important beacons to all sort of ships sailing the waters off the Atlantic coast.

Jules Verne Nautilus submarine
Topic: Lighthouses & Shipwrecks
Good news about the Panama sunk Nautilus submarine

It all started with a news flash .......
An inside scoop on a story behind the story of the recent discovery in the Panama coastline

Last year we published a couple of articles regarding the discovery of an outstanding shipwreck on the Panama coastline, more precisely in the shores of the San Telmo Island.
The international response to the finding in 2001-2002 of this long thought Japanese Midget Sub from WW2, as a Union Sub never used by the American Civil Army was amazing.
New insightful information has seen the light lately regarding the origin of this gorgeous sub. According to the onsite experts, archeologists and historians of around the world, Julius Kroehl, the mind and hands behind the Nautilus, was a former Union underwater explosive expert discharged from the Army due to his malaria illness. Back in those early days, the US Navy Permanent Commission was reviewing submarine proposals, and Kroehl submitted his design. Rejected because of the complexity and the tremendously high costs involving the construction, Kroehl didn’t give up, and joint ventures with a private enterprise, Pacific Pearl Co with whom he would work and develop the famous ship. Military purposes aside, in 1864 the Nautilus was shipped off the New York Port heading the Panama coastline to hunt pearls underwater. Accurately suited for that purpose hatches in the bottom of the vessel allowed divers to exit the main compartment and explore the seabed. However, the system found gaps and failures, resulting in the death of the crew, including the very own Kroehl, when the decompression failed. 1869 was the end of Nautilus. The sub was abandoned on site of its last harvesting expedition.

More than 130 years after, the sub was found and its story was reconstructed by expert passionate researchers.

The story was brought to life in coordination between the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, James Delgado and Director Nacional del Patrimonio Historico of the Instituto Nacional De Cultura (INAC) of Panama who granted the archaeological permit. Mr Delgado is not only a marine archeologist expert but also a TV celebrity, hosting National Geographic International Television's "The Sea Hunters". Their joint work resulted in an incredibly high level of documentation on the wrecked craft.
According to the latest input on the matter, this group of experts is still working on the documentation. At the same time, the experts are evaluating the options regarding the repatriation of the sub for reconstructing and exhibiting purposes. One option is that the Explorer is taken to New York, more precisely to the foot of East Third Street in Brooklyn, where the first dive took place. Another is the Warren Lasch Center in Charleston, where the H. L. Hunley is undergoing conservation for eventual display. And a third possibility is Washington, D.C., home of Kroehl's wife and site of the family home.
Whichever is the final destination to this wonderful Submarine, one thing is for sure, no efforts are spared to recover both the object itself as well as history behind its life and death.
