Not only that, but it's also immorally wrong. RMSTI proposed this very such thing five years ago. They wanted to rip open the bow and retrieve the Rubiayat, and also to see if they could locate William Carter's Renault in the forward cargo hold.quote:
But I'm not sure that a "big" salvage attempt IN the bow itself should be attempted at this current time. It's just too risky.
Nope, they sure weren't. Judge Clark was a lot more than just unhappy with Arnie Gellar and company.quote:
The court which is overseeing RMSTI's activities weren't thrilled with it either.
Agreed, I doubt the actual book is still there, as the paper would have disintegrated a long time ago, but the jewels may have survived.quote:
Something like that would have been inside a small crate somewhere. If it's there, my bet is it's long turned to mush.
>>To say that the members on here were upset once this was known about, is an understatement.<<
The court which is overseeing RMSTI's activities weren't thrilled with it either. They said something in legalese which translated meant: "Don't even *think* about it."
Really, if somebody wants to try and locate whatever's left of the Renault, all they need to do is send an ROV down that wide open hatch and just take photos. It worked for Jim Cameron and is a lot safer then having at it with sharp objects and cutting torches.
