In March, 2007, Gavin travelled to the Pacific coast of the USA where he was hot on the trail of the wreck of a very old Chinese junk. It turns out, after a recent update received in October 2007, that there are potentially over 40 unidentified wrecks lying under the sand dunes on this inhospitable part of the coastline. Initially located with magnetic anomaly surveys, one of these wrecks has been corroborated using an independent Ground Penetrating Radar test.
This discovery mirrors and corroborates Cedric Bell’s work in New Zealand because of many unusual aspects of the wrecked ships, and is consistent with the damage caused by a tsunami as we believe wrecked a fleet in New Zealand.
We recently applied for permission to carry out core sample drilling and await these results with great anticipation!
