    The crew of the Coast Guard Cutter Smilax worked with personnel from the North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources to recover five cannons and multiple barrel hoops from the Queen Anne's Revenge in Beaufort Inlet, N.C., Oct. 28, 2013.The Queen Anne's Revenge was the ship of the pirate Edward Teach, better known as Blackbeard, for more than a year before the ship ran aground on the shoals in the inlet.The crew of the Smilax, a 100-foot inland construction tender, worked with the NCDCR divers to lift the approximate one-ton cannons aboard the Smilax using a combination of floatation bags and the ship's crane.
