Researchers are documenting a shipwreck that was discovered on Wednesday.
Researchers in Ponte Vedra Beach are working to uncover and document the remains of a ship that have been sunken in the sand for decades.
Stormy weather shifted the sands and allowed ribs of the ship to poke out to the surface where they were spotted by volunteer turtle patroller Peggy Friedmann on Wednesday, according to FirstCoastNews.com.
Researchers from St. Augustine’s Lighthouse Archaeological Maritime Program are working to pinpoint the exact decade the ship is from; PonteVedraNow.com reports say it's likely that the ship may be the oiler Fortuna II that wrecked in 1938.
After their findings have been documented, archaeologists will cover the wreck back up with a blanket of sand as if it'd never been disturbed.
