Marine archaeologists hunt shipwrecks near Apollo Bay

THE tale of the swift Geelong schooner the Miranda may not be exactly like a Dirk Pitt novel but it is still exciting.

It is 1881 and loaded with 600 bags of potatoes the Melbourne-bound boat took to calm oceans but soon hit a storm and ended up in Davey Jones’ locker.

The crew survived.

The spuds were never seen again.
