Explorer finds Drake’s sunken fleet


Explorer finds Drake’s sunken fleet - MiamiHerald.com: "He lists Sir Francis Drake, who died of disease while anchored in Portobelo Bay, as "his favorite pirate of all time." Drake was buried at sea, supposedly inside a lead coffin, to keep the Spaniards who hated him from finding the body. Drake's two ships, the "Elizabeth" (named after the queen who knighted Drake) and the "Delight" then were scuttled by their crews in Portobelo Bay. Drake harassed Spanish shipping for decades and was the first English sailor to circumnavigate the globe. Burnt ships' timbers, believed to be from the Drake ships, were discovered earlier this month in Panama." . . .
