Ships & Shipwrecks of the San Francisco Bay 

When: Tue., Sept. 20, 5:30-8:30 p.m. 2016
Price: $45-$55
Some 1400 vessels entered the Bay in 1849 and 1850 and nearly 225 are recorded as having sunk, but only a few have been found. Two vessels are currently undergoing restoration, having been discovered in excavations for new building projects. Many were purposely sunk as foundations for filling grade structures for the developing city. This presentation will be given by Dr. James Allan, who has spent decades searching for these ships and has been described as the underwater "Indiana Jones."
