per amica silentia lunae

or, across the ferny brae with the evil voodoo celt

If you ever thought your job was too exciting...
...how about something that could be described as legal piracy?

I have a serious attraction/repulsion reaction to this idea. One one hand, it's chillingly dangerous. On the other hand... how cool!

A gripping article, too. Laugh-out-loud funny at points (the two-diver comedy team in particular), and really poignant at others... I really feel for the lead salvage master.

And is it just me, or would this make an awesome movie?

Not a new industry, just more profitable than ever. Wrecking was quite a money maker in the days of the tallships. Of course some of them weren't always legal - using false lights to lure ships onto reefs.

Heh, seems like it would be fun to be honest. Reminds me a lot of all the kids who have seen the Mummy movies and Tomb Raider, Indiana Jones, etc that makes them all think the Archaeology is what they want to do in life.
