    THE AMERICAN DREAM



    THE AMERICAN DREAM
    “Salvaging Spanish Sunken Treasure”



    Frogfoot’s 2008 Seminars: When you consider that over 3,000 shipwrecks line the east coast of Florida alone, then the American Dream of Salvaging Spanish Sunken Treasure is within the realm of possibility. Florida is considered the epicenter of salvage activities, with the 1622 Atocha recovery west of Key West as the greatest treasure to date at $400 million. The important fact is that there is still treasure left to be recovered.
    To “find it” is the American Dream, and Bob “Frogfoot” Weller has been recovering treasure from Spanish galleons since 1960. He is one of the last remaining salvors who originally located and worked the ballast piles of the Spanish treasure fleet of 1733 in the Florida Keys. Since 1978 he has worked the ballast piles of the 1715 Spanish treasure fleet from Sebastian to Ft. Pierce, Florida, and his Crossed Anchors team has been one of the most successful salvage groups.
    Over the past 13 years Frogfoot has conducted seminars on “Salvaging Spanish Sunken Treasure,” opening the door to those that have hoped one day to become involved in the American Dream. The seminar is designed to “show the way” for successful salvage. This year he will be holding two seminars in June, about the time that salvage groups head to sea. The dates are June 9-12, and June 23-26. These are Monday thru Thursday dates, allowing a week-end for those who would like to enjoy some Florida sunshine and possibly more diving in the Florida Keys.
    The seminars include the following: two days of lectures by prominent salvors who have had their stories published in National Geographic. The third day is a tour, by automobile, of the 1715 Spanish treasure wreck sites, a visit to the Mel Fisher Treasure Museum in Sebastian, a visit to the McLarty Treasure Museum in Wabasso, and lunch at Captain Hiram’s in Sebastian. The fourth day is a shallow water (14’-16’) dive on the 1733 Spanish galleons El Infante and the San Pedro in the Florida Keys.

    Transportation from the airport to local hotels is included, as well as the tour of 1715 wreck sites, and the Florida Keys 1733 dive. SCUBA tanks may be rented at the charter boat site in Plantation Key. All lunches are provided. There is an excellent B&B in Lake Worth, close to all the great restaurants and antique row, as well as within walking distance to the ocean. Rates at the B&B are $125-190/night with the 4th night free. Enrollees must make their own arrangements with motel/hotels in the area. Cost of the seminar is $750/person, with a deposit of $250 required to reserve space in the seminar. A maximum of 10 enrollees will be allowed per seminar. Reservations for the seminar can be made by sending your deposit check to: “Crossed Anchors,” 1818 17th Ave. N., Lake Worth, Fl. 33460-6432. =OR= E-Mail Bob at: BobFrogfoot@comcast.net.
    OLD FRIENDS, OLD WINES AND OLD GOLD ARE THE BEST!

    Re: THE AMERICAN DREAM

    I went to Frogfoots' seminar several years ago, and strongly recommend the experience to everyone interested in shipwrecks. You will be glad that you did.
