The Cannons Were Trophies From Other Countries

On the first expedition in 1981, the crew decided their priority was to safely remove all of the ship’s cannons. Though they had no issue pulling the smaller guns out of the water, they enlisted the help of the Swedish Coast Guard to obtain the larger ones, some of which weighed over four tons.

All the gun cannons were of different shapes and sizes; trophies from different kingdoms including Germany, France, Denmark, and Spain.
