Maritime Findings
Wood and metal salvaged ship materials including hull planking, a ship's cabin door, Muntz metal sheathing (a metal alloy that was cheaper than copper) , and a portion of a hatch cover.

Four features documented during the 300 Spear Street project can be directly linked to Charles Hare's ship breaking business during the early to mid-1800s: a wood foundation constructed with recycled ship parts, using ship-building techniques, the discarded debris of Charles Hare's ship breaking yard work, and the stern section of a partially dismantled wood sailing ship and a wood platform.
