The Spanish Convoy of 1750

The submerged Galga has an amazing and intriguing life today in the history of modern treasure hunting and in the development of maritime salvage laws. True to its canine and martial heritages, the Galga has sprinted far ahead of its sister ships in receiving attention; and the frigate's guardians must still be vigilant to fend off unwanted boarders seeking fame, fortune, and every shred of its physical remains. Captain Huoni and his crew would be bewildered at what the modern world has tried to assert about the frigate's mission, cargo, and legacy. More than likely, what remains of the Galga will stay undisturbed off the coast of Virginia and Maryland. The Spanish government has little incentive to spend money on its recovery, and private salvagers now know that they have no legal rights to anything discovered.
