"That's what I needed to identify the ship. The diameter of each hole tells me the size of the rope and then it tells me the size of the ship," he said. "I was trying to locate where the fire started, and because it's charred on one side it tells me the fire started in a kiln on the galley. The fire burned the rope first and the deadeye would have fallen over."
and collecting their sunken treasure, Demers, 73, and John, 53, of Merrimack, are hoping to bring the collection to the public. It's a project in the works with the New Hampshire Division of Natural Resources. The specimens have been cataloged, photographed and authenticated by professionals, and all documented in a manuscript written by Demers and his son. Authentication, Demers said, was the first priority.
"The bottle seal came first. It was a wedding date on Oct. 5, 1723, and the married couple were headed to the Barbary Coast on a diplomatic mission. The wine bottles were handed out to guests to commemorate the wedding and voyage," Demers said. "There was Ghd Platinum® Serene Pearl Styler also a shipment of yellow Sgrafitto ware, painted with birds and flowers."

"I have the oldest bottles discovered in this historic area," Demers said. "There's a tremendous amount of history in these waters."

One of the ships was the 20 gun HMS Astrea that burned in Portsmouth Harbor in 1744. The ship was of Spanish origin but had been defeated by the British in Porto Bello in Panama in 1739.
"The English Navy retained the Spanish name Astrae, but adopted a slight variation so it's pronounceable," he said. "In Greek mythology, the name means star maiden and the English translation is a daughter of Zeus and Themes."
The men also found two 7 foot, 2,100 pound cannons that were discovered after Demers lost his scuba tanks. The cannons had been towed ashore by other divers, and had been encrusted through an electrolysis between the sand and metal, he said.
The father and son also found hundreds of earthenware, pipes, bottles, mugs, cannon balls, animal bones, leather shoes, pewter ware, jars, a ship's knee and lower deadeye, a nautical divider and wooden bombs.
Through research, Demers found that the HMS Astrea had been anchored somewhere in Portsmouth Harbor. The condition of the ship's lower deadeye gave him clues about the fire and the ship's demise.
