This beautiful chart from Sealake Maps shows the location of over 500 shipwrecks in the Florida Keys from Soldier Key to the Dry Tortugas. The shipwrecks are categorized by type of ship and year sunk. Many hundreds of hours went into making this chart. Shown in great detail are the Keys, reefs, lighthouses, and water depth contours. The Florida Keys extend to the Dry Tortugas, and the unique inset shows the Marquesas Keys to the Dry Tortugas, a first for charts of this kind.
The map features stories of how 33 of the most interesting and famous shipwrecks occurred, including the Atocha, Valbanerra, El Capitana, and Spiegel Grove. Pen and ink drawings illustrate the tragic sinkings of six ships.
The parchment at the bottom of the chart tells of the 1622 and 1733 fleets, the Search for the Atocha, the U-boats, the Wreckers, Deadly Hurricanes, the Lighthouses, Key West, and the Dry Tortugas.
The map is in full color and measures 36" X 24", making it the perfect size for framing with a standard size or custom frame.
