Sizing Her Up
Photograph by Courtney Platt

Corey Malcom measures the thickness of the sternpost at the lower back end of the Henrietta Marie. On this ten-day stint at the site in July 2001, the team spent some eight hours a day under water. “It took most of the week to uncover and measure the ship and a day to rebury her in the sand to protect her,” Malcom says. He hopes eventually to recover the fragile hull and preserve it on land.
