Cobra, look at this.

We have found slave ships. They seem elusive because unlike permanent Roman roads, ships do not have an infinite life-span. The vast majority of ships don't sink. After a hundred years or so, they are scrapped, and new ships are built with their wood and metal. We've found two slave shipwrecks (the Trouvadore and the Henrietta Marie), and they seem shabby because when ships are underwater for hundreds of years, they get eroded.

It's hard to find shipwrecks of any kind, because we don't really know where to look, and the ocean floor is incredibly vast. It took decades to find the huge, metal Titanic. Finding a small, rotted wooden slave ship is even more difficult. Not many wrecks of any kind have been found, and because most ships in the 1700s Caribbean were not slave ships, even fewer of those wrecks were used to transport kidnapped African people.

You guys.

You know how sometimes you say "lol" or :dead or whatever because you chuckled a bit? Well.

This thread literally made me hysterical.

It was that damn baseball gif that put me over the edge.

I'm... slowly recovering.

Were the slaves fed food and water and if so where did the supplies go if there were hundreds of them packed on the ship?
Probably in the space where they didn't keep slaves. Transatlantic voyages would have required preserved foods kept in barrels and casks, which could be stored rather efficiently. You're also acting like slaves were well fed on their voyage.

Brined Pork etc. Salted food in barrels. Meat can last for long period of times for Trans-atlantic voyages. Salt-free water was moor of an issue.
