About all this, an old story tells the name of a Montevideo's little rocky beach beach named "LA MULATA", where many years ago a colored man was found dead at the shore (stabbed) this man was know for exchanging gold coins at the city and swimming naked with only a belt and a leather little bag attached. (Those items were found empty with the body) His woman spend a lot of time crying at the beach, hence the name La MULATA. Since I was born at Montevideo, I dive a lot there but found nothing, the water is muddy , but the Preciado items were found very near that place. Anyone can do his research of the above facts and try to find more ! (The colored man didnt use any dive gear, they havent been invented in those times !! Good Luck !!!

IT WAS INTERESTING TO LEARN ABOUT THE SUNKEN SHIP EL PRECIADO. MY WIFE AND I ARE TRAVELING TO MADRID, SPAIN TO LOOK UP MY FAMILY HISTORY. I HAVE NEVER BEEN TO SPAIN AND AM VERY EXCITED ABOUT SEEING MY SURNAME ALL OVER SPAIN.
PLEASE FORWARD ANY COMMENTS. THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.

I tried to find more down there in 1995. I liked Uruguay and the people but the water was dirty. You need side scan sonar and a lot of diving to get anywhere. Go ahead, give it a shot. We found some cannon balls, bar shot, chain shot, grape shot cannister with a wood sabbot. That's it.
