While most of the wood has disintegrated from what is believed to be an early to mid-19th Century wooden-hulled shipwreck, copper sheathing used as protection against wood-boring marine organisms remains, leaving a copper shell retaining the form of the ship. The copper has turned green due to oxidation and chemical processes with the sea water over more than a century of time.
