    Welcome to the forum....

    a good starting point would be "The Treasure Diver Guide" by John Potter and Shipwreck of the Western Hemisphere" by Robert Marx

    RIOBRAVO, the book you are talking about may be in the link provided by the posting prior to yours....since that is a listing of many of Weller's books. Did you check out the link

    I believe Joe was talking about "Finding Sunken Treasure". A good primer for anyone just getting started. It's not so much a research book as it methods and reasoning behind what we do.

    Gee, no title like that by Weller. Couldn't find that title at all. I do know of a great book called Sunken Treasure: How to Find It by Bob Marx. Maybe you meant that. Newbies confuse Marx and Weller all the time, on account they have the same first name.

    Newbies...lol - Yep, Rio Bravo is definitely a newbie, and me too. You with your 17 posts MUST be an old pro...right? I should probably thank you for getting the title of the book right, but nah, I'll save it. Joe and I didn't have time to look it up, cause we've been aweful busy here in Texas.

    The book from Weller is "True stories of Sunken Treasure" ... his most recent ... a collection of his favorate short stories.
    OLD FRIENDS, OLD WINES AND OLD GOLD ARE THE BEST!
