As you know, back in the 1600s-1800, many old ships have sunk or crashed their way on to The Wildwood’s shores. One great exmaple of this is the brigantine Nancy that was sunk off where Wildwood Crest sits today.

That shipwreck was recreated in Morey’s Piers Raging Waters waterpark! Click the link below to watch a video about that.

Back to our story. Terry Rogers and his wife were metal detecting off the water line on Maple ave, when Terry’s detector made a loud sound. According to Terry this means that something big in under the sand.

They pulled out their shovels and started to dig. With high-tide just 30 minutes away they didn’t have much time to find what the detector was alarming them to.

After 15 minutes they finally found it. It was an April Fools Day joke!

I hope we fooled you and gave you a great big smile! If we did share this on your Facebook wall and tag a friend! Let’s keep the smiles going!
