H.M.S. Endymion Wreck

The warship HMS Endymion sank after hitting an uncharted reef in the Turks & Caicos Islands in 1790 and lay forgotten for almost two centuries.Recently relocated, the wreck site is now a popular local dive site. The map features original line drawings of the vessel’s hull, route plan and underwater sketch of anchors, guns and other artifacts. Excerpts from the Court Martial tell the circumstances leading up to the wrecking and of the commander and 300 crew members’ successful efforts in salvaging essential supplies and escaping from the tragedy
