Captain Cook's ship 'found' WORLD BULLETINS.

RESEARCHERS believe they have found the ship that legendary explorer Captain James Cook used to sail to around the world submerged somewhere in Rhode Island's Newport Harbour.

The Rhode Island Marine Archaeology Project, which is leading the search effort, said in a statement posted on its website that it is 80 to 100% sure that the remains of the HMS Endeavour is among sunken wrecks off the state's coast.

Cook used the Endeavour to claim Australia for the British on his historic 1768-71 voyage.

In 2014, the Australian National Maritime Museum signed an agreement to help the Rhode Island group find the lost vessel.
