Most of the ship wrecks that I associate with treasure are not dangerous dives as far as getting caught inside one, there mostly nothing left but what they were carrying. If you find a ship wreck and it's still standing, to swim in it is dangerous and should never be attemted solo. More than one diver has lost his life that way.

I have heard of several treasure wrecks, both in Bermuda and elsewhere. Very hazardous proposition to undertake the recovery of that much gold.(yes I have thought about it and no I haven't proceeded with any plans to recover) Check out the Treasure of the Sierra Madres for an insight into what happens to people who are exposed to that much loot.:arghh:

I would think that any treasure wrecks found within the boundries of any countries would belong to that state/country as it was found on their property. So this means you would have to search in International waters. Any ships sunk would also be owned by the respective insurance companies who now own said ship as they carried the policy that was likely paid out. You might offer to buy said ship before you attempt a recovery. Just my opinion and not a very sound one at that.:pconfused:
