In Search of the Mahogany Ship in Australia

Carrying with them some shovels and a metal detector, the duo survey the land, in search of a legend — the Mahogany Ship. The ship is believed to be a Portuguese caravel that sailed in the 16th century. Poulter has been searching for this ship for 15 years now, and he displays no signs of stopping from his search. But did the Mahogany Ship even exist? Some say that it didn’t.
