    Re: Uboats belize

    About 9 years ago a British guy advertised a U-Boat for sale in Nicaragua. I called him and he said he wanted $50,000 for the location and salvage rights (which he already had). He said the boat was buried in sand in 18 feet of water with the bow and conning tower exposed. I will try to find my notes with details and post them. He advertised on this forum.

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    I've heard of one or two off Colon, Panama, but that the closest to Belize that I know of.
