Summary

During the summer of 2014, students and staff from the University of West Florida continued the on-going excavation of a sixteenth-century shipwreck associated with the ill-fated Spanish colonization fleet of Don Tristán de Luna y Arellano (1559).  Throughout the ten-week summer field school, along with a subsequent fall season, underwater archaeologists attempted to locate the mainmast step and bilge pump assembly of the Emanuel Point II Ship. This paper covers the theoretical model designed and applied by the author to systematically locate and document this important construction feature.
