SS Republic
A team of archaeologists and researchers used historical data to narrow the search area. Then the Odyssey team began an extensive search, which utilized advanced robotics and cutting edge technologies, covering over 1,000 square miles during 2002 and 2003 alone. r n r nIn the summer of 2003, Odyssey discovered a promising target when the side-sonar image revealed what appeared to be two paddle-wheels, the walking beam engine, two boilers and hull shape. These features and their dimensions closely matched those of the SS Republic as documented in the historical records. Odyssey used a Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) to inspect the site and confirm the presence of a paddlewheel steamer. The ROV recovered an artifact in order to file an Admiralty arrest in U.S. Federal Court to protect the site.
