Watch the moment explorers find 'very special' 200 year old Canadian sloop shipwrecked in the Great Lakes

The second-oldest confirmed shipwreck in the Great Lakes, an American-built, Canadian-owned sloop that sank in Lake Ontario more than 200 years ago, has been found, a team of underwater explorers said Wednesday.
The three-member western New York-based team from ShipWreckWorld.com said it discovered the shipwreck this summer in deep water off Oswego, in central New York. 
Images captured by a remotely operated vehicle confirmed it is the Washington, which sank during a storm in 1803, team member Jim Kennard said.
