    Congratulations on your finds, research and on your generous donation to the museum Dan.

    A well earned 1st BANNER with your breast plate find as well!

    Awesome finds!!!
    As for the gators, it's the ones you don't see that you should be concerned about.

    Those are great saves for history. And I worry about deer when I am hunting. Can't imagine worrying about gators, mating or otherwise. Used to go to Naples, FL every year back in the 80's. Gators were protected for so long they got very big.

    On behalf of our team, I thank you all for those kind comments. Each and every one on our team deserves much credit for the great success of this on-going project regardless of the specific role they played and the contributions they made to retrieve, record, research, catalog, preserve, display and therefore save this piece of local history for generations that follow to appreciate. I salute them all and thank the Treasure Net Moderators for the Banner award.

    Our project will most likely continue this coming spring/summer contingent on favorable conditions...stay tuned.
