Name that Wreck!

The photo above depicts a model of a famous Florida shipwreck as it appeared to archaeologists on the sea floor.  Guess this one correct and we'll mail you out a Florida's Shipwreck Preserves poster!  Want more information on Florida shipwrecks?  Check out the Florida Maritime Heritage Trail and the Division of Historical Resource's Underwater Archaeological Preserves webpage.  This particular wreck is not on the trail, but would make a good candidate someday.


For a bonus point, where is this model on display?

    It is the oldest wreck yet discovered in the waters off the port it was attempting to gain entry into!

    It is a model the wreck of the British ship The Industry. It is on display at the St Augustine Lighthouse Museum.
