symptomoftheuniverse: FTA:Researchers with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration were looking in May 2013 for another ship that sank near the Golden Gate Bridge in 1952 when they found what they thought was the City of Chester.They conducted what is called a multibeam sonar survey and over the next nine months sorted through the data. A follow-up look with sidescan sonar found the ship 216 feet beneath the surface, sitting upright in the mud. There was a fatal gash in the ship's port side.The wreck was found in 1888 by the U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey, the predecessor of NOAA.So how many farking times have they "found" this wreck?
