Storyline

Who is aware that the New England Coast is the graveyard of many snips, which are not only a menace to navigation, but which contain much that is worth saving? Wrecking companies are organized for the purpose of buying up these vessels, sending divers down to get exact locations, blasting when necessary, and finally bringing up fantastic shapes, covered with barnacles and sea-weed. And yet from all this comes much that is valuable. Copper, wood and other material have a commercial value after their long soaking, which is considerable. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
