    Want to treasure dive in gin clear waters at Jupiter!

    The "Tank" is back at our Jupiter Shipwreck Site!

    We're Back

    Our summer recovery season has just begun!
    May 7th and we started off with a bang!

    The day started out shaking the bugs out of the boat from her sitting for a while....
    We anchored in close where the sand was skinny - then blew holes due easterly until we got
    to the first ledge and rock pile!

    Tom came up and said, "Wow, you just uncovered a big piece of timber!"

    I bounced down and it was the biggest piece of encrusted wood I have ever seen at the site!
    We buoyed it as our starting point. {See Photo} and tomorrow we
    will further investigate.

    Note the circle around the buoy in the last photo.
    No secrets at the Jupiter Shipwreck Site....

    Since 1987 our Jupiter Wreck has continued to yield coins but the question, "Where's the rest of the Ship?" has remained unanswered...  There are 2 layers of shipwreck scatter and we are equipping the "Enterprise" to excavate the primary treasure layer.  Join with us this year!

    Oh man...this certainly could be a dramatic change of events! Congrats on the find! Sounds like you're nearer to finding the main pile.

    Yes, I am pumped...
    This doesn't look like a piling
    It is structured.... by that I mean straight but it really isn't round like a piling.
    We are going to take a much harder look at it tomorrow.
    We can use a hand if anyone close by may be available on short notice!

    We try and get out year round depending on if the equipment
    is all together.... the weather permitting, there is fuel in the Tank's tanks
    and we aren't getting in each others space or way.

    We have been at it since July 13th of 1987. A lot of sub contractors
    have come and gone and worked under our JWI Federal Admiralty Arrest.
    But make no mistake about it. The Jupiter Wreck belongs to JWI. Inc.
    and its stockholders.

    Best of luck!!!
    Det vi vet er så uendelig lite mot det som har hendt. Arkeologen er som den som går langs en strand og finner småtterier, skyllet i land fra et forsvunnet skib. Men selve skibet som gikk i dypet med menneskene får han aldri se.

    Not until they move those Big Rocks out of the way. Hey, again, think you could sell those to landscapers. Just tell them to bring a big truck and some strong chains, and your divers will hook it up and they can just drive them things right out..or could they ?

    It was a good first day of the season. Thanks Capt. Dom and Yvonne. It was nice to meet Dave too. Here are some more pictures. Looking forward to a productive season on the wrecksite.

    Hey Pirate Diver......

    On Columbus Day you ought to consider the
    "Columbus Day Regatta"!

    There are some interesting "treasures" to behold there!!!

    Hey Tom,

    While every one is worried finding out if you guys found any silver coins I am a bit concern of Tom’s stance on pic #2 in the first post. Dude you have to admit that you look kind of weird in that pic.

    Luis, if you'll read the title of the pic, it says "grab butt." I think our friend has gone off the deep end (pun intended)

    It is a "first day of the season" ritual aboard the Tank apparently. I didn't ask. I never question the captain's orders.
