Sunken whaling ship of 'Moby Dick' captain found

Captain Pollard's "Two Brothers": "Remains of a whaling ship discovered on a remote coral reef nearly 600 miles northwest of Honolulu, Hawaii are believed to be those of the second ship that inspired Herman Melville's classic 'Moby Dick.'"

The shipwreck was that of the Two Brothers, the second ship captained by George Pollard which went down after it struck a coral reef during a storm in 1823
