    It was you. Didn't want to give away your identity. That's all. So, if I may ask. You believe, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that Elmer Carver is telling the truth?

    Hi gang,
    Just ordered an interesting book about pearling and the Cardonas entitled "American Baroque, Pearls and the Nature of Empire, 1492-1700" by Prof. Molly A. Warsh. Warsh is a history professor at University of Pittsburgh and according to her research, the expedition may have had an early example of a diving suit. There is even a picture of it in her book. I know this sounds strange, but to me, Cardonas expedition always seemed more military than civilian and this might explain why. I also wondered why you would give up 3 ships in the Caribbean and then travel overland, to simply build 3 more ships?!?!? But it might be easier to hide a suit in your caravan and you don't risk it being captured or lost while sailing... Gotta run, but I'll be posting more on this when I can...

    Adios

    Well the obvious reason was that with no Panama canal, it could take months to sail around South America to get there. It would be faster to just build new ships on the spot.

    True Oro, but "if" they really did use an early diving suit, they may have also had security concerns too... They could hide it easier in their overland supplies. Funny thing though, the earliest info I have found on diving suits is from around 1677-78, this would be 50-60 years earlier... I should have something by Friday for everyone...

    The above link is to Terraserver's image of the Salton Sea, California, and this concerns the story of the Pearl Ship, which was supposedly a galleon that got trapped in a rare flooding of the area from the Gulf of California about 1615. Some stories state it went aground about 30 west of Dos Palmas; that it involved a "Captain Iturbe"; it had onboard a king's ransom in pearls.

    So, short of going into the Spanish Archives, here's the other option. Look at these satellite photos of the northern Salton Sea area for the ship. If it exists, it should show up somewhere along the edge of the mountains where maximum flooding took place.
    I think if you did run aground you would send shipmates over board to dig it out to try to get unstuck and if the water was recessing and you kept sending people over bored to dig it out and if you couldn't get it unstuck in time the ship would be stuck so if you can imagine this ship being gone . The imprint where the ship ran aground would look just like the bottom of hull ..this pic is close to Salton Sea it would be in route to or from Salton Sea
