These three combined nautical charts pinpoint locations of over 50
shipwrecks located in the easily reached shallow waters along the Florida southeast coast.
Included are true compass headings from recognized landmarks to assist in locating the

The computerized scatter patterns of found treasure also make this
3-in-1 chart a must for beachcombers and coin-shooters. Printed on quality buff-colored
paper 20 by 28 inches in size, the chart is suitable for framing and decorating the wall
of your den, office or main salon of your boat."
