Not even close we forgot about this boat. No way you forget the story about the ship in Vasa.

Wasn't the Vasa completely forgotten about for 200+ years before it was found and dredged?

Forgive me if I’m mistaken it’s been a while since I learned the story. I don’t think we ever forgot the event of the sinking and I think we always knew where it sank we just didn’t have the ability to dredge it up immediately and by the time that technology was available we just assumed it would have decomposed to the point where such actions would have been pointless.
