Sunken Ship Gets New Lease On Life/ 'The Elcie Diaries': Sailing Across the Pacific


For 200 years, a ship called the DeBraak sat at the bottom of Delaware Bay. The ship, which capsized in a freak storm in 1798, was pulled from the seabed in 1986. Archaeologists have been working to preserve the ship's hull and remaining artifacts, which the public can now view at Cape Henlopen State Park in Lewes. Bryan Russo heads there to learn more about the DeBraak's role in maritime history. Then, we'll bring you the latest in our Elcie Diaries series, in which we're following a Maryland family on their sailing expedition around the world. This time, we'll tag along as they begin their long voyage across the Pacific.
