    Oh my! Welcome back, stranger!

    So do you believe that the El Salvador is near the newer Topsail Inlet or at the other place I think you may know of?

    So what ever happened to the Aqua Gems and Deep Blue Marine deal?
    I take it all they found was a piece of wood that dated to that period?

    Rusty's mate. According to a TV interview in Salt Lake City in April of 2006, the CEO of that company stated that he found a $500 million dollar wreck named the El Salvador and that it was in Deep Water and he was going to bring it up in one piece. He also issued a press release to that effect.

    I can tell you that the piece of wood that they found was in about 20 feet of water.( I don't call that deep). Everyone on this board that dives will tell you that you are not going to bring up a 250 year old wooden ship from NC intact. I can also tell you that as far as I know the companies you mention have never found any treasure at that site to date.

    Re: El Salvador shipwreck in NC

    That's my matey. I tried to tell her that the waters there have very strong currents and there was no way it would be intact. In fact, I dove in that inlet and let me tell you, there is no way that team with their equipment could dive for very long. You can't see a darn thing to begin with. And do you know how many ships sank there? It is impossible to tell where one piece of wood might have come from. So, she got on here hoping someone could tell her that more than that was found.
    I told her I had not heard anything more than what was on aqua gems web site and that has not been updated.
