Re: Pirates caught


HI Wills

I took loads of notes and tapes, It all went rather well in its own way.

Ok on topic now for a moment. While I was down south I spoke to a good friend who was a employee of a large shippiung line. Now I heard this story before from another friend and collegue, The titanic was said to be carrying gold in her holds. A lot of gold. Now lets say for the fun of it what the times reports is true and factual how about the UK gov. Trying to re claim there gold? Is it possable one wonders. my friend certainly thinks it is true and not such a daft idea.

I love the bit in the report about the renault car:-) try reading it again if you dont see what I mean

Re: Pirates caught


If there were that much gold, don't you think someone would have discovered it by now?

Re: Pirates caught


Hi TTF

No not necesserily, There are many ships down on the sea bed now which carried gold not on manifest. It may be in the specie room or hidden in a hold under something else.

Remember also the titanic when it hitt the sea bed sunk 50 feet or so into the soft sand. She was traveling around 30 MPH so anything not secure is way down in the bed.

Re: Pirates caught


Well even if there were, I'd personally like to squash the rumor just so no one else decides to just bang in there and take whatever.

Re: Pirates caught


yeah that would be nice if we knew for sure.

however i think it is like graham said if there was any gold on boards it is most likely buried in the mud at the bottom.

Re: Pirates caught


Hi TTf and Wills

Once again it is unfortunatelly one of those things that if it is a state secret it will not be known for another 8 years. But some people have put a very good argument forwrd regarding gold shipment on the titanic.

It would be good to squash or prove but like TTF said if it was proved who would dive for it then??

Re: Pirates caught


NO what I said was they would dive for it then. And destroy who knows how much of what is left of the wreck trying to get at it. Never underestimate the power of human greed.

Re: Pirates caught


Hi TTf


Believe me I dont underestimate the power of greed, I have seen it many times before from archivists who have dived a wreck to take photos etc. and gon back the year after to find the hull blown apart. Or dredged etc. Greed is abundant in the wreck industery

Yea, what people do... I have no doubt 7th Officer would regale us with horror stories whenever we feel interested.
