Storyline

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.

Horrible. Nothing EVER happens. Rehash every week.
7 April 2016 | by bigdboogiewoogieSee all my reviews

Every week is a rehash.... of absolutely NOTHING!

The characters are boring.

The story is BEYOND boring.

The production is less than stellar.

This is the worst "treasure hunt" documentary of all time.

They could have fit this so called "story" into a 15 minute YouTube clip.

If you do decide to watch this, be warned... you will not get your 10 minutes of your life back

P.S. I seriously doubt you'll be able to stomach more than 10 minutes of this garbage.
