David Mearns has discovered some of the world’s most fascinating and elusive shipwrecks. From the mighty battleship HMS Hood, to solving the mystery of HMAS Sydney, to the crumbling wooden skeletons of Vasco de Gama’s 16th century fleet, David has searched for and found dozens of sunken vessels in every ocean of the world. ‘The Shipwreck Hunter’ is an account of David’s most intriguing and fascinating finds. It details the extraordinary techniques used, the meticulous research and the mid-ocean stamina and courage required to find a wreck miles beneath the sea, and the often surprising results (one of David’s finds became the conclusive evidence in Austria’s most infamous murder trial).
