Pirate Booty Found By JFK Jr.

The Boston Herald ran a story that the treasure hunters that found the pirate ship Whydah may have had help from John F Kennedy, Jr. It seems that JFK, Jr was a diver that did a fair amount of diving off the coast of Wellfleet and noticed an unusual pattern on the ocean floor, a pattern he thought might be caused by a row of buried cannons. Only recently did they follow up on the 'lead' and discovered not only the cannons, but a compass that probably belonged to JFK, Jr. Interesting reading! Other Whydah findings can be seen at the Whydah Museum in Provincetown. Check out the museum online... Here. Fun for the family on a rainy day.

I believe it. I was a waitress at Captain Elmer's Restaurant in Orleans when the Whydah crew often came in for breakfast. One week or two JFK Jr. was with them. I was pretty thrilled, to say the least to be their waitress!
