This chapter explores the well-preserved lower hull of the Emanuel Point Shipwreck during two campaigns of methodical excavation. We investigate and study the ship’s central mainmast and pump well; the tail end of the structure, including the sternpost and displaced rudder; and the collapsed bow section, with anchor and gunport covers. Perhaps 40 percent of the shipwreck site is explored, allowing critical dimensions of the ship’s structure to be measured for an estimation of its cargo capacity (tonnage).
