    FYI, I just watched an episode of National Geographic's "Drain the Oceans" that focused on wrecks of wooden-hulled ships from the American Revolutionary War including wrecks in Lake Champlain, Lake Ontario, and the York River. I thought it was an interesting program, see the link below:

    I agree, very well done. I have been watching them on Disney+.

    What an odd sounding title. Since it's on Disney+ I guess I'll check it out.

    when I saw it..I liked it, but got really tired of them reusing the same "lets, DRAIN THE OCEAN" catch phrase all the time...and the same animation...just felt very gimmicky to me...

    Good series. There is an interesting article in the recent issue 46 of Wreck Diving Magazine, “a behind-the-scenes look at National Geographics international top-rated television series.“

    I've always wondered how much the water helps hold the wreck up. If they drained it away I would guess even steel wrecks would collapse once the water was removed.

    The series is on disney+ ? That would be a nice change of pace from Mickey Mouse Clubhouse or Frozen 2!
