HUNTERS GALLEY
By Capt. Dan Berg


The American sailing sloop, Hunters Galley, was wrecked off the island of Bermuda during a gale on January 11, 1752. At the time, she was on a voyage from St. Eustatius to South Carolina under the command of Captain Clement Conyers with a general cargo.

The Hunters Galley did not founder as a result of just one storm. In fact, the ill fated ship suffered through three. During their journey, the vessel's rigging and sails had been severely damaged by a violent storm which also washed one crew man overboard. Captain Conyers decided to head to Bermuda for repairs. On January 9th, another hard gale hit, this time splitting her sails and rendering them almost useless. On the 10th, the crew spotted Bermuda. Captain Conyers anchored his vessel in Hogfish cut because the damaged ship could not be navigated into the harbor. On January 11, 1752, the vessel was washed onto the rocks by yet another of a series of gales.

Today, all that remains of this wreck, which lies 200yards offshore of Pompano Beach in 12 feet of water, is some ballast and timbers on a sand bottom. Teddy Tucker, who originally located this wreck, told us that descendants of Captain Conyers still live in Bermuda.

by Dan and Denise Berg, 6x9, 73 page downloadable ebook. From the first quarter of the 16th century, Bermuda became a landmark for Spanish ships sailing back to Spain from the New World.

The reefs have claimed vessels ranging from ocean lines to small fishing boats. Bermuda Shipwrecks is the most comprehensive, accurate, illustrated collection of information, photographs, sketches and stories ever written about the legendary wrecks around Bermuda. Bermuda Shipwrecks includes over 100 illustrations comprised of 61 sensational color photos, 17 rare b&w historical images, 19 stamps, 4 sketches plus one map.
