Martin unravels more of the mystery behind the Republic's treasure. And, during an attempt to recover the gold a panicking diver has an accident that puts his life in jeopardy and threatens to shut ...
Martin Bayerle, who first located the sunken RMS Republic in 270 feet of water south of the island Nantucket in 1981, makes his second major recovery mission to the wreck. The vessel, built in 1903 and sunk when she was inadvertently rimmed broadside in poor visibility in 1909, is rumored to have on board untold millions in face-value gold coins - an amount that could exceed $1 Billion in today's currency values. Bayerle, who was once imprisoned for manslaughter after shooting and killing a man who was having an affair with his wife and attempted to extort money from Bayerle to leave, may possess better information as to where on the wreckage the gold may rest; he's assembled a group of proven salvers, including his own son, to dive, explore, and if possible recover the entombed riches.Written by
This is Martin Bayerle' second go at the RMS Republic, and son Grant's first true pass. Martin's first major expedition to the wreck was a 1980's effort not long after he discovered the vessel. See more »
Total load of dilusional fantasy. Absolutely no proof there was ever any gold on the Republic. The filler story about the shooting completely pointless. Go watch some paint dry instead, you'll be more entertained doing that
