Bob "Frogfoot" Weller has been salvaging Spanish galleons off the coast of Florida since 1960, locating and salvaging many shipwrecks sites. He became involved in underwater work as a frogman in the Navy during the Korean War, serving in Korea from 1951-54, hence his nickname "Frogfoot". Artifacts and treasure in his collection has been featured in National Geographic, and he and his diving wife Margaret "Lady Goldiver", have appeared on numerous television specials including NBC's "Hunt For Amazing Treasures".Review:
I have read this book and not only organized my own operation, but have found TREASURE!! It saved me months of research, many $$$$, and allowed me to begin salvaging within weeks rather than years. -- Ken Nihely
What a book! I can now call myself a successful salvager because of Bob "Frogfoot" Weller's careful explanation of "How To" begin salvaging. I found a gold coin my first year, along with quite a nice pile of silver Spanish "Pieces of Eight". -- Joe Shepherd
