OMEX's Odyssey Explorer Heads for Treasure?

Treasure nuts like me watch MarineTraffic.com all the time, waiting for our treasurer hunters -- excuse me, archeologists -- to leave dock and find the loot. Well, it just happened this morning. The Odyssey Explorer left its dock in Hull, England with a destination marked as North Sea.

If you've been following the adventures of this hot tip, you know this means we've finally gotten approval -- oh, please! -- and are headed out to recoverer what we can of The HMS Victory.

If you'd like to follow OMEX's ship as she sails out today, click on this link to MarineTraffic's site.


We're going to hopefully bring up lots of gold (perhaps). Lot of cannon for sure.

Or maybe she's going out fishing. The company should make some kind of announcement shortly.

The Victory sank near the south of England, Austin, not in the North Sea.

As of June 1, 2013, OMEX is still awaiting final permission from the Heritage people to begin searching the mud.
