C&C Technologies, Inc. found the Green Lantern wreck during a deep-tow survey in 1996, and their archeologists investigated in 2004. The wreck is an unidentified copper-clad sailing vessel that measures approximately 20 meters in length. Named for one of the ships lanterns lying just outside the stern, the embossed word Estribor, Spanish for Starboard, caught the attention of the archeologists. Just like modern ships, historic vessels ran a green light on the starboard side and a red lantern on the port side.
