The structure has started emerging from the sand in Daytona Beach due to erosion caused by Hurricane Ian and Hurricane Nicole, with beach-goers coming up with a variety of theories of what the mysterious object could be.

Researchers and volunteers joined forces to dig around the structure in order to help identify joints, ribs and curved wood belonging to a vessel.

Upon in-depth examination, maritime archeologists agree that the structure likely belonged to a privately owned merchant ship dating back to the 1800s, probably transporting fruit from the Caribbean or manufactured goods along the coast.
