Hope this turns out to be the real thing. But, looks like it hasn't been verified.A leading American maritime archaeologist, Professor Charles Beeker of Indiana University, who accompanied Mr Clifford's recent reconnaissance expedition to Haiti and who also carried out an underwater visual assessment of the site, says that it "warrants a detailed scientific investigation to obtain diagnostic artefacts".
"There is some very compelling evidence from the 2003 photographs of the site and from the recent reconnaissance dives that this wreck may well be the Santa Maria,"
"But an excavation will be necessary in order to find more evidence and confirm that," said Professor Beeker who is Director of the University of Indiana's Office of Underwater Science
