Glad she is so deep. It should keep the illegal salvage crews away from her for quite some time.

I am stunned by the picture with the International Harvester tractor. You can still read it. Amazing.


Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Someday your life will flash in front of your eyes. Make sure it is worth watching.

I only wish these discoveries (Indianapolis, Lexington, Hornet etc.) could have taken place sooner as now 97% of all WWII veterans have passed.


“Government has three primary functions. It should provide for military defense of the nation. It should enforce contracts between individuals. It should protect citizens from crimes against themselves or their property. When government-- in pursuit of good intentions tries to rearrange the economy, legislate morality, or help special interests, the cost comes in inefficiency, lack of motivation, and loss of freedom. Government should be a referee, not an active player.” - Milton Friedman

Some great videos: https://www.facebook.com/pg/rvpetrel/videos/

There is a second tow tractor in front of and a bit farther back than the one most everyone has seen, it too is sitting upright, chained to the deck.

In one of the videos there is a gas cylinder, acetylene etc., lying on the deck pressed flat by the extreme pressure.
