    When exploring the Cursed Caverns of Isla Tormenta, I came across reminents of a ship buried between the mossy rocks. Is this the legendary Flying Dutchman, or just another ship that got caught in a riptide. Aye, this be the Dutchman, and here's why....

    A normal pirate ship can't get through and into the Cursed Caverns. It would have to go under the water and find its way through a tunnel of caves that eventually lead to the surface where the ship was found. This can happen via erosin, but it would take hundreds of years. The grand age of pirating took place for about 200 years long. No ship like that would find its way down here that quickly. But do you know what ship can go underwater? The Flying Dutchman.

    Why would the Dutchman be here? This is an easy answer. Every ten years, Davy Jones can go on land and plunder around. If he was in the caves at the surface hole, he could step onto the poop deck and observe the land. He has no reason to go back to sea, so why wait and suffer under the cold water, when you can just create a base in the caverns. Once ten years is over, he can step on land right there! He doesn't have to waste time sailing to another island when he has land there.

    Proof he resides down here? His minions. In the caves, we see a bunch of cursed pirates who are obviously a part of his crew. Why would they be down here if not to scout the land and bring treasure back to Davy Jones himself? Checkmate athiest

    So will Davy Jones come out to fight one day? Perhaps. Considering a year in the game would be about 3 months, maybe he could come out then. But who knows? I guess we will just have to wait...

    Interesting theory. Although it is most likely just a ship from a fleet. all of the pieces are smaller than that of the Dutchman. Never the less this sounds S I C

    Maybe i may be wrong on this, correct me if I'm wrong. But couldn't his other cursed ships like the phantoms and revanants go underwater, or could only the Dutchman do that?

    Well, anything is possible. The occupants of Tormenta are sea-people, much like one would find on the Dutchman. However, since the Flying Dutchman is a cursed ship and not wrecked, as it cannot be sunk, it's highly unlikely the shipwreck in the caves is the one and only. But like I said, anything is possible. As for the poll and convincing me, that was never an option.

    So the Dutchman cannot be sunk?

    The Flying Dutchman is a legendary ghost ship that can never make port and is doomed to sail the oceans forever.
    From what I recall hearing back in the day, Storm Island (aka Isla Tormenta) is indeed the home of the Flying Dutchman's crew, and was originally intended to have the entire cave flooded in water, much like the numerous pools one finds there, (ultimately dry land was also included), since the crew cannot set foot on dry land.
