The ship Tre Kronor, which was believed to be lost 500 years ago, was netted literally by Captain Finn Olson coincidently.
This is how a trawl net made the most sensational discovery of modern age. The Tre Kronor, sent out in 1557 by the Swedish King, was supposed to find the legendary island of Rulantica.

The ship however disappeared without a trace and Rualntica was never discovered.
According to Caption Olson proof was recovered that suggests that the Tre Kronor actually did discover Rualntica back then.

‘Starting today Rulantica is no longer a myth – but reality’ says the Swedish captain in a telephone interview with the ACE president Malus.
