    It must all be in the wording, I was looking for The Nuestra Senora de Atocha but that had only $40m in gold and silver, but was the World's most valuable wreck, as it was carrying Columbian emeralds among others.

    Just discovered the memory trainer is not working at full strength for me! I blame Covid, though I did get this one from memory.

    I agree with Austin G, reading up on this question after having to guess the answer was an education, thank goodness I live in a place where so far, history books are not getting re-written. And special thanks to members who share real anecdotes!
    For those with the time available from modelling, this link was written by the Canadian Encyclopaedia staff, and makes fascinating reading.

    Correct, I believe Hermank, that that is currently MSC Irina, but members will probably know for sure.

    Non of the above, guessed that this was the only one not passenger based, and made by Evergreen, but looked up current info on Marine Insight, and got; MSC Irina has become the worldโ€™s largest container ship, with a capacity of 24,346 TEUs.
    But I still learn from members comments ๐Ÿ˜Š

    I thought Josiah Fox drafted this ship and Humphreys argued for copper sheathing, but I am getting old, and basically a landlubber to boot !

    I was convinced it was Robin Knox - Johnson, and Chay Blythe did it westward, but another intriguing question!
