The following video on the search for Columbus' Santa Maria in Haiti by Ocean Research and Survey in 1977 was presented at the Broward Maritime Meeting tonight in Ft. Lauderdale.

Just before the start of the meeting in the City Commission Chamber



The speakers



Here is Ed Stevens, a treasure salvor. He took my one and only graduate course which I have ever taught, "Coastal Zone Assessment" at Nova Ocean Sciences in 1982. He dropped out about halfway through the course and became a captain for Mel Fisher. Ed's fiancé at the time found the mother load on the Atocha while Ed was organizing things on deck. Who says higher education pays?!
