Now this is the place I would love to visit. But not linger as long as the previous tenant.

Can you remember the TV series in the '60s? It was shown most summer holidays for what seemed like 10 years, but I always watched it.

Burying 800 tonnes of booty must have been some undertaking in 1715. One man doesn't do that in a hurry with a pick and shovel.

have there been any updates to the story?

"That link is 2005 FE"

I know, that's why I mentioned it. I know of no updates, and I can't help thinking that if $10 billion worth of bullion and jewels had been dug out of the ground on a desert island we might have heard of it.

I'll charter a plane and boat, you bring the digging and geophysics kit and off we go....Oops, I'm not allowed to fly any more :(( looks like you might have to go it alone :))

I have found Bed and Breakfast. Just have to win the lottery now. It's easy isn't it really.

What about all that loot that was lost in "The Wash" has any of that turned up yet. Much nearer to go digging I would have thought.

  crosstrainer 18:07 01 Nov 08

Forget the B & B, I'll come by boat, you travel by plane...We can camp out on the island, quickly locate the booty, by-pass the local authorities, and return to the UK as millionaires.

Yeah, right :))
