It's crazy to think that we've more than likely sailed over it many times!!

Re: Captain Cook's HMS Endeavour likely found off Rhode Island coast

Cook: one of the greatest contributors to navigation, seamanship and world discovery who pushed the boundaries of knowledge into a new enlightened era. He is an excellent example of "The Great Man Theory" of civilization that states that the world is advanced through the efforts and contributions of "Great Men" -- a concept that has been unfairly maligned by a politically correct rhetoric aimed at a dumbed down population that believes there are no personal differences among humans and that success is dependant upon environment. This could be a great historic and archeological find.
Good luck and safe sailing.
