HM Bark Endeavour may have been found off American coast

The final resting place of the boat that discovered New Zealand may have been found

Captain Cook used the vessel on a voyage of discovery to Australia and New Zealand in 1770 and it was later used by the British navy in the American War of Independence before it was scuttled off Newport, Rhode Island, in 1778.

Once records of the transport ships - including the former Endeavour - was discovered by Abbass in the 1990s, her team began whittling the number of prospective wreck sites down from 13 to a handful and now finally to one or two. Instead, it says the search for the ship has been narrowed from a "fleet of 13 vessels to five, and now possibly to one or two archaeological sites".

Captain Cook left Plymouth in August 1768, and in April 1770 the Endeavour became the first European ship to reach the east coast of Australia when Cook arrived at what is now known as Botany Bay.

- The Endeavour next undertook navy voyages to and from the Falkland Islands. before being sold into private hands in 1775. "This is a vessel that is significant to people around the world, including Australia".

Marine archaeologists believe they may have located the remains of Captain James Cook's famed ship Endeavour after a centuries-long search. When French reinforcements came to assist American revolutionaries in Rhode Island, the British made a decision to sink their ships rather than allow them to be captured, creating a blockade out of scuttled vessels to block the French from getting into the harbor. If the correct wreck has been identified, it will end a great maritime mystery and mark the end of over 25 years of searching for the Endeavour by marine archaeologists and researchers. Endeavour returned to the English port of Dover in July 1771, having been at sea for almost three years.

In 1993, volunteers with RIMAP began researching the cluster of sunken 18-century vessels, believed to include the Endeavour, and eventually traced paperwork that proved Cook's ship was renamed Lord Sandwich. Here they believe, with a high degree of certainty, that they have found the final resting place of HMS Endeavour. In 1778, it was intentionally sunk to block French ships coming to aid the Americans in their rebellion.

The Endeavour has arguably never been forgotten, however.

Captain James Cook was a British mariner, cartographer, and explorer. Though Cook became a legend, the Endeavour didn't receive the star treatment.

Still, nothing is a substitute for the real thing.

"The identification of the Lord Sandwich ex Endeavour in Newport Harbor will be particularly significant during this time of historical celebrations", the group said. It's always been known that the Endeavour came to rest off the coast of Rhode Island; the New York Times reports the ship was used by the British during the Revolutionary War and then sunk as a means of thwarting French ships coming to assist the Americans.
