  1. Hang numbers

    I do, indeed. Hundreds that I have bought, borrowed and connived over the years. Send me an email at ropesfish@gmail.com and we can discuss. :)
  2. NUMA Contacts

    Since Cussler passed away, I doubt that the NUMA crew is active. Sufficient funding makes many things possible and all things more fun. Have you tried emailing the webmaster of the site?
  3. Endurance: Make of this what you will...

    They should go back with 1 or more ROVs to completely carefully photograph the vessel in as high resolution as technologically possible to enable high quality 3D photogrammetry to be done. When they get that rendered into a model, post it online as a virtual museum that people can explore to...
  4. <Finally> 12th Annual Treasure Hunters Cookout

    While I would have preferred to have seen all of you at the Cookout, now, due to Jim Wilson's photography skills and generosity you can see 200+ pictures here: https://onedrive.live.com/?authkey=%21AG7zXS0UfcyWzls&id=AB2F2F709DB54160%2110028&cid=AB2F2F709DB54160

  6. New member looking for advice from the experienced!

    The State of Florida snagged it for their collection. That year we ended up giving the State 33% of what we found, including that 4 coin clump. That was painful. The agreement with the State says that they can take up to 20% of what is found on Each Wrecksite. The amount that any particular...

    That he is...he's been at this a long, long time and while I have had good captains in the past, I believe that this is going to be the best year to date for our little crew!

    Dammit, Ivan! Wish you could make it!

    Yes sir! Josh Fisher Abt will be running the Showdown. I am very pleased about that as well as having Rob Kreiger running the Carib. Rob worked with Kane aboard Magruder for a long time. Now if I can get Sampson over here to complete the set, I'll be happy(er).

    I don't know much about this stuff but I do have an opinion: Cheap, handy and pretty effective - Nokta Macro Pulse Dive - Kellyco Inc - 189 USD each (I love these things.) Expensive and very sensitive -what pretty much everyone on the 1715 Fleet uses as The Deep Seeking detector - AquaPulse...
  14. Can some one help me find this

    I wonder who ol' Mary was talking about here?
  15. <Finally> 12th Annual Treasure Hunters Cookout

    Howdy folks! John and I were talking this morning about how many people might be at the Cookout. We hope that it's a lot. We will be starting at about 12 as per usual. I'll be cooking a few ribs, probably about the 150 lbs I did last year. We will have burgers and hot dogs and other good stuff...

  17. How does one acquire a Treasure Coast lease and what is the typical cost?

    I asked John Brandon about this a while back. If there is any question about the applicant's honesty, they do not get a subcontract. Subcontractors and crew are all subject to background checks, etc. Got a bad reputation, bad credit or can't get along with people? You won't get a subcontract...
  18. Bahamas??????????

    I keep hearing that it is indeed possible to get a permit to excavate and recover in the Bahamas and that there have been 3 Beyond Top Secret Permits, one of which is obviously Carl Allen and Allen Xploration who are working on the Maravillas as well as some other wrecks. The other two are said...

  20. Contract in the DR

    I hear stuff sometimes, but as far as I know there are people working on getting permits to work in the DR, but they have not been successful so far. Their Constitution forbids 'treasure hunting' in something over 10 places according to someone who has pursued a permit since the moratorium. I'd...
