    Good catch Mike - I find mistakes in my posts too when I look them over later; seems I get carried away writing sometimes and miss silly mistakes.

    Re: The Pearl Ship

    Oroblanco we have talked before on other forums
    I had joined this forum before its format changed a year or two back but only posted two messages
    so my membership quickly lapsed. athough I often surfed the messages here. I had to rejoin to post.
    My dad is the one who wrote the little booklet on the lost ship for the benefit of the coachella museum in Indio.
    His updated version of that for their gift shop is now finished but he is having problems with his color printer.
    but once that problem is solved he will get it to their shelves. (i am also trying to make a cd pdf version for him) anyway Because Dad wants to raise money for the museum
    I have promised I would limit what I post online about the ship but im quite willing to answer private emails.

    As a side Hobby I have been keeping track of Ship of the desert stories the fictional as well as non fictional.
    and been writing a sort of background history to the legend (posted in the harry oliver yahoo group.)

    Re: The Pearl Ship

    Hello friends - Isayhello2u would you believe I had a similar problem? I had joined this forum years ago but had a problem with my old reliable PC and lost my passwords etc along with numerous emails, addresses etc so had to rejoin recently. Fortunately the same ID was available - if anyone cares to search through the old archives you will find me there too.

    From your statements I get the impression you DO have an idea where it is! (Pearl ship) Do you know if anyone has ever located the photos of the "viking" ship? I never had any luck tracking them down.

    Well heck I never do make mistakes - I once thought I had made a mistake but I was mistaken......

    Re: The Pearl Ship

    I am not aware of any of the desert ship photos that have shown up except for a couple of photoshoped creations.

    on the question of the pearls survival the desert heat is just as much a problem for pearls as acidic conditions and age.
    to quote from a text on caring for pear jewelry.
    "pearls contain calcareous crystals that are sensitive to chemicals and acids. They also contain water and protein and need to be properly taken care of. Pearls should never be wrapped in cotton or wool because the heat generated would add to the risk of drying out, causing the the pearls to crack and turn brown." It is also recommended that pearls be dampened from time to time in lightly salted water.

    Re: The Pearl Ship

    Hey ISH2U,

    What Oro is talking about is not the Pearl Galleon. It's the Viking Ship. There was a Viking looking ship found somewhere either closer to/or below the Mexican Border. A boy showed it to a couple, and they took some pics of it. This was supposed to have happened in the fifties or sixties. Story goes that shields were still fastened to the side of the ship exposed.

    Re: The Pearl Ship

    I understood Oro perfectly Gollum. thats why I replied in the plural
    "any of the desert ships"
    You hear rumors of photos that someone describes as being a viking like ship
    or of other photos of the remnants of some other antique wooden ship
    but the only photos I am aware of are that might be traceable are of the lost/abandoned steamships and of the sunken warplanes

    Re: The Pearl Ship

    Hello friends,
    The photos have been quite a problem to track down. I have heard of several - one that an "old prospector" showed to a vacationing couple, another of the "viking ship" (this was supposedly published in a newspaper, which I have failed to locate) and another pair of shots taken by a small plane flying over, which are supposed to show an old Spanish ship in the sand dunes. I wish I could find any of these photos, but so far no such luck.

    Shoot Isay,

    All you have to do is get a survey of the Salton Sea, and you will get fighters, a B25, a B17, some fighter bombers, and a bunch of other warplanes.

    I've never heard of their being pics of the Pearl Galleon. I would love to find them.

    Best,

    Mike

    Spanish Galleon in the Desert

    Somewhere in the rugged desert wasteland of Imperial County in Southern California lies the long-dead skeleton of an old Spanish galleon, its sun-bleached timbers jealously guarding its million dollar fortune in fabulous pearls.

    Jeff,
    if you will look in this forum under Treasure Legends /Pearl ship
    http://forum.treasurenet.com/index.p...c,21524.0.html
    you will find more material and if you have any questions I and a couple of others can fill you in on some of the stories told about the ship in the desert.

    Re: Spanish Galleon in the Desert

    I believe all this is just fancied legend. My grandparents were settlers to that area in the 1920s (Brawley, El Centro, etc....). It was known that that was myth, but a cool story to tell the grandkids to keep them spell-bound
    Metal detecting is my one worldy vice!

    Re: The Pearl Ship

    Tom although a lot of fiction has been written & told about the ships in the desert
    starting on or before the early 1870's one of the odd things about the "true" stories told in each generation is that in the non viking ship reports of sightings there is less and less of the wood found.
    1920's hmm your family were late arrivals
