  1. I think the atocha gold is for finders keepers NO one can lay claim. Thats like saying I found a small nugget in the mountains so the whole mountain is mine, thats crazy to say the fisher family have savage rights. Anyone with scuba gear should be able to search and keep the treasure!

  13. “it was just sitting on the top…” how set up is that. At first I thought ok, that could be possible, then I saw it was an advertisement for their company and knew it had to be set up. And who told that guy it would be a good idea to shave his armpits.

  19. Not much left on the Atocha now.

  20. So your dad is about 400 years old?

    Comment by Pigratcroc — November 4, 2010 @ 9:16 pm

  21. That’s the Mercedes, you twat, not the Atocha, and that’s only because the Mercedes was in Spanish waters; if the Spanish want their stolen gold so badly, they should find it for themselves.

  22. If they were going by that set of rules, they’d have to give it to the Indians that the Spanish stole it from, right?

  23. my dad worked on the atocha.

    Comment by photographlov11 — November 4, 2010 @ 10:50 pm

  24. Yes it did. I believe that it sank during a hurricane sometime around 1622.

  25. Give it back to Spain,stealers

  26. In 85′ I almost went down to ask Mel for a diving job.
    One of my big regrets.
    Also, one of my favorite reads is the book Treasure of the Atocha by Duncan Mathewson III,
    What a great read, and what a great treasure hunter, Nice work Mr. Mel Fisher and crew!

  27. I have a silver ingot documented from the Atocha. One of my prized posessions, although it is probably not worth very much. Got it on my honeymoon in the Caymens and it takes me back each time I look at it. History of a sunken ship, but also history of a marriage that has stayed above water for 16 years.

  28. wow, back in 97′ on a trip to Mel Fisher’s Museum, i was 15 min late from meeting him, thanks dad…. anyways, still got a postcard writen out specifically to me and signed “Today’ the Day” by Mel himself. RIP MEL
