Old Charter Salvage charged Deep Blue $25,000 to prepare a full report providing a detailed map and coordinates to Deep Blue Marine, Inc. of the location of said Treasure! OCS also took Deep Blue Marine personnel to the wreck impact site; placed buoys around said wreck site, then confirmed the presence of many bomb fragments with a JW Fisher Pulse 10 within the OCS target areas. OCS then put divers in the water with Aqua Pulse Metal Detectors to determine that the targets were exactly that(bomb fragments) in 15ft of water and impacted 3ft to 4ft into the bottom. The anomalies are covered by beautiful coral and sea fans surrounded by protected turtle grass from thousands of years of primary, secondary, and tertiary disturbances and natural current flow.
Deep Blue Marine, Inc. did not get permission to uproot the coral, sea fans and sea grass from the fknms to investigate the site further in 2006 and the whole of 2007. Which turned out to be a total waste of time. And eventually another scam. In April of 2008 Deep Blue Marine, Inc brought in sub-contractor Oceanic Research & Recovery, Inc., a Nevada corporation (ORR) to continue salvage operations in their absence. ORR subsequently had a magnetometer study performed on the OCS target areas at the direction of the site owner Kenneth Rose of The Kirby Group, LLC. The magnetometer study confirmed again the presence of magnetic anomalies that have the profile of a bombing range that existed there for over thirty years in the exact same location that OCS located in 2006. Deep Blue Marine and ORR were very happy to terminate this contract in January 2009
