During our May 2006 fieldwork you provided volunteer underwater camera services, which included 9 days of underwater cameraman with gear, one weather day, 4 HDV tapes and 500 miles of travel. At a time when state budgets have been significantly reduced, your efforts have proved extremely critical in our goals to study and bring to the public the exciting finds from the only pirate ship to be excavated using strict archaeological controls. The results will greatly increase our knowledge of this interesting period in American history.
