On June 27, 1748 HMS Fowey, a fifth rate frigate struck a coral reef and sank, coming to rest on the sea bed near present day Miami, Florida. The wreck remained undiscovered until the 1970s, when a local sport diver located its remains within the boundaries of Biscayne National Park. The NPS relocated the remains soon afterward, and later identified the wreck as that of HMS Fowey.
