    Default Port Nicholson treasure

    Have been keeping up with latest news on Port Nicholson torpedoed by U Boat of Cape Cod Ma. Salvage ship left April 9 from Boston Ma. to wreck site to attempt to retrieve gold and platinum ingots at a depth of 700 feet. Will keep members informed if any valuable metals are retrieved. Could be worth billions.

    LOL I wish to hell it was me exploring that wreck Mr. Mosel. The salvage team is from Maine and if you Google up the latest news on the Port Nicholson you will be able to see film clips of a mini sub exploring boxes thought to contain the ingots. Each member of the crew can expect to walk away with millions if this proves true. The ingots were suppose to be payment from Russia for payment of war goods I understand. I thought these war items given to Russia were under Lend-Lease. Latest report I saw was dated April 9 2012. Will keep checking for forum members as this could be most valuable find ever. I imagine the captain had to secure rights to wreck recovery as to everyone will have there hand out for a slice of the pie. I too wish I could a couple of those ingots to finance new Dodge Challenger R/T. Will keep you guys posted.
