See how that worked out for the business.
You know, seekerGH, I've been involved with this stuff for a long time. It's quite apparent that you neither empathize with us treasure hunters or even treasure hunt yourself. So exactly why do you continue to bash everyone that tries to enlighten the world that artifacts cannot be left on the bottom of the ocean, the self serving governments creating laws to prevent recovery are essentially corrupt, that in order to recover the treasure and historical/cultural past is an expensive enterprise that taxpayers cannot adsorb. All these shipwrecks and their contents have been on the ocean bottom for hundreds of years with no attempt by any government agencies to search for, recover, or even identify until private enterprise "treasure hunters" take on the expense in terms of money, manpower, research and time to go about accomplishing this monumental task. These government agencies simply wait until we "Treasure Hunters" find the ships and if there is "treasure" involved, pounce on the wreck with laws that they create for their own purposes. Isn't it obvious that of all the historical wrecks out there that the only ones the governments seem to go after are the ones with treasure or the ones with artifacts of significant value. Their argument about historical/cultural significance seems to pale under review doesn't it. I suggest that you, seekerGH, do a little soul searching and get off your sanctimonious high horse.
