Salvage diving anyone?

Post Number:#1  Postby irukandji » Sat Dec 08, 2007 11:39 am

Anybody is doing salvage diving here? I read that there's still a lot of old ship wrecks in the Straits of Malacca. Might be some gold bars and coins there still.  ;)

Waa, Irukanji, dreaming of getting rich on a gloomy December Saturday ar?  :D :D :D

I think salvage would be the realm of tech divers, not recreational divers. Since we are talking about wrecks that old, there may be inherent dangers that recreational divers are not trained for. Between gold bars and my life, I will happily live another day eating just maggie mee.....  :D :D :D

Hehehe!...yeah, I love diving...but think and think again.....why not make some money out of it?....and then salvage diving came into mind.
Agree with you.....salvage is more to tech dive. But again I'd go for tech dive if there's a wreck full of gold bars...hehe!

oh no no no ..salvage diving is not for Tek diver, is more for Commercial diver.

MV Rico is being salvage right now, to remove the whole vessel ... for scrap metal.

Gold bars..gold coins...treasure eh, there are a lot in Malacca Straits...need money to do expedition for it.

:D

Definately need a lot of funding....maybe get some 'inverstors'...hehe
But I think there'll be also a lot of problems with the laws, Navy, Marine Department etc etc...

I thought MV Rico was a fisherman vessel. I was going to go diving there in July. Ok, time to organise another trip there.
