    I'm just passing along info, sharing what I found online - responding to the original question on this thread.
    I have no clue if the story is false, true or somewhere in between .
    Not holding my breath, waiting for posted pics of salvaged gold bars from the wreck though.

    Itís all in the numbers guys at the boat sank offshore figuring how long it would take to paddle a life raft the shore against the tide of three to four knots thatís one thing to figure 2nd of all whoever said you can pick up 100 pound bar in swim yourself up as not go try it you canít even pick up a 50 pound bar in make it to the service unless youíre a dolphin and yeah I think the story is true because of the government records in Cuba , hey good luck ha ha ha ha

    Not true Pete. Chart shows 25 to 33 ft. due west. It comes a little South of Sanibel.

    If the original handwriting said "75" but was misread later as "25" - Then the gold is sitting in 75ft of water.

    That area is heavily trafficed by fishermen, divers and shrimpers. If it was there someone would have found it by now.

    Was not a "PT"... that was an SC-497 which caught fire and burned to line then scuttled.

    The hardest thing for me to believe is that a surplus military boat would be sold with a " working 50 cal. machine gun !!

    Don't forget these were Navy veterans that served in the war. They got special privleges. Also anyone can buy a machine gun if you get the right license. Also read the story, the gun was not in working condition.

    NaTT, that is a great story! But it sounds like a "story." Then again, you just never know, it could be sitting there waiting for the right guy or gal to come along and pick it up!
