    G spot diveable for at least the next week... this is really great news. Given the high probability that the silver is there, more time means a higher likelihood that Odyssey will get video, have a more concrete recovery plan, etc. Given the nature of the site (steel hull, cargo holds, etc) a week should give them time for a pretty thorough inspection! =)

    • Well, the more I think about it,
      the longer with no news is bad news.
      It's still early yet, but no news is
      bad news-IMO I believe they would
      like to put out some good news on the
      (G) and also on the Victory! It might
      not be immediately, if they get the
      video, but soon there after. Just
      don't think they want to hide any good
      news from the Shareholders, and with
      the stock much higher, it would help
      the company in many different ways-
      such as raising capital [funds] if
      they absolutely need too! No news
      at all, is not a good sign!!!

    • Hey, Quick...

      Thanks for all your insightful comments.
      I think most on this board would agree.
      I just thought this needed to be said.

      If Odyssey keeps primin' the pump, then
      soon we will drink cool, cool water.

    • I suspect when if we hear news it will not be directly from OMEX. For the last three months news has first appeared through the British press usually over the weekend. Remember where the first news about G,M, and V first appeared. Usually posted here graciously by the more established message board members. This is a grand credit to those that unselfishly post news. We all appreciate these dedicated posters. Thanks.

    • With all due respect, I disagree. I do not believe we are going to start seeing things til May. However, I hope you are right and I am wrong. It is very easy to sit here and simplify the process. However, we need to remember that they are not retrieving things from the bottom of the local pool or pond...

    • I fully expect the Explorer to complete their planned recon and move on to another site. The Explorer will NOT be the ship doing the recovery, she is not equipped for it. The Seabed Worker is already under contract for that work the last I read.

    • Agreed, the only issue i have here is that Gordon specifically said they had hoped to get video or even bring up a few bars. That set expecations

    • Don't tangle the rovers or lose one.......

    • It very well could be easier to find and recover if it had fell out! Plus, if it exited the hole resulting from the torpedo, then that is an excellent access point for getting at what might be remaining.

    • Well, the silver certainly would not fill an entire cargo hold. Do you mean to say that they put the silver into a hold and then left the rest empty? Doesn't seem to make much sense to me.

    • Probably camouflaged by packing inside boxes of tea!

      1700 tons of tea has always seemed way too much to me unless there was another use for it. That would be more than half the net tonnage capacity of the Gairsoppa. If this is true, then I would expect to find tea boxes in every hold of the ship. There's also the matter of the pig iron as well. It's a cinch the iron and silver would be at the bottom of the stacks if loaded separately.
