A Sword From Blackbeard’s Ship!

Long-time scuba diver Rick Allen makes his living as an underwater photographer. In 2011, he lost his arm in an accident and vowed that it would not stop him from recovering the pirate Blackbeard's ship from the bottom of the ocean. He was fitted with a prosthesis that would allow him to continue to scuba dive, and carry heavy equipment underwater. In June of 2013, he and his crew recovered a cannon and part of a sword. The sword hilt is so fancy; some speculate it may have belonged to Blackbeard himself. Go to A Sword From Blackbeard's Ship.
