    re: Gil Riggs,
    I had been to that area with Gil Riggs a few times and knew him well.
    Unfortunately Gil passed away a couple of years ago in a car accident when
    someone ran a red light. He was quite a treasure hunter and had done
    extensive research and was quite a dowser. Also he was a Coast Guard
    retiree, quite an interesting guy.

    Here is a satellite photo of the ship in question.

    I have been to the location and it is currently under about 45 feet of sand.

    A minor followup note, read on the internet a while back the Salton sea will be pretty much dried up in about 5years. As the sea recedes and evaporates,ts possible some relics may appear,or be sticking out of the muddy bottom, ya never know.

    Fuzz was this a recent conversation with her and did it include a mention of a brass bar?

    Sorry, ISAY, but haven't been back here in a while! But no, not a recent convo, she passed many years ago. But what she said was about a solid gold cross, not brass at all. I remember reading the story she was refering to at some time in a treasure mag.

    why am I always the one to pee in the fire?

    the salton sea was formed when irrigation canals overflowed in the early 1900's...
    there was never a passage to the ocean, never a natural flow to the Colorado river....

    big mistake...pearl ship tale, is formed out of a long season with mescal.

    Donald,

    What you say is true of the modern-day Salton Sea, but there is more to the story:

    History Chronology

    We have spent some time in the area and I am familiar with it's history. I believe the story of the pearl ship is feasible.

    Take care,

    Joe

    Take care,
