    1733 Fleet Wreck

    I have researched these wrecks several times, but I can never seem to find the answers that I seek- so maybe someone on here could help out? I was curious- was there any treasure aboard the 1733 fleet? Gold, emeralds, silver, etc? If so, has it been partially, or even fully recovered? Does it remain missing? Also, have they found every ship from the fleet? Any help is great . Thanks!

    OhioAdventurer you need to get some basic treasure hunting books. The Treasure Divers Guide by John Potter, Shipwrecks In The Western Hemisphere by Robert Marx would be a start. Those two books would answer all your questions. What research have you done?

    Let us know how much research you did? Seville, Library of Congress, Havana, London?
    I am not trying to criticize but I question all your questions regarding the Grosvenor(which I replied to), and a couple other ones here on TN.
    I personally did 4 years of full time research into just Manila Galleons and not much of that was in Seville where I hired a translator/researcher. Maybe you are doing your research in the wrong archives. Have you researched original documents? Do you have the "Treasure Diver's Guide" by John Potter as a starter?
    I personally don't look in the Caribbean because the Spanish had 4 wracking crews in the vicinity. Also if a ship went down in a hurricane the mast was probably still sticking up for the pirates to find and plunder. I doubt that any pirates kept a salvage log!! How many millions do you have to spend?
    UW Th'ing is very research, knowledge and money orientated. Think of it as a learning project that will take time.

    Agree with above - you really need a copy of this book. It would answer all your questions.

    Anyone interested in the 1733 fleet should read "Diving to a Flash of Gold" Martin Meylach. It's one of my favorite books, I've probably read it 10 times over the years. It even has a map with 100 wrecks and their description including the 1733 wrecks.

    Thank you for the advice everyone! I apologize for making a fool of myself in the thread, but I am very new to this and not sure what to look up or how to find these documents.

    At least you know you don't know. You're far better off than many who try to act otherwise. The two books mentioned above are a great start. One bite at a time, my friend.
