A close-up view of the bow of a shipwreck discovered by NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer in the Gulf of Mexico on May 16, 2019. Marine life is prevalent on the wreck, except on the copper sheathing which still retains its antifouling ability to keep the hull free of marine organism like Teredo navalis (shipworm) that would otherwise burrow into the wood and consume the hull or barnacles that would reduce the vessel’s speed.
