John steel Master shipwreck hunter!
What doz it take to be a shipwreck hunter?
In the winter months you must go to many libraries to study the newspapers and look for shipwreck News articles sometimes you have to read the newspapers for a whole year looking forward to bits of information! You must have an understanding family!
Eat cold gas station food! Sleep on your boat or maybe in your van spend a lot of hours on the road and countless hours on the water looking for A small target on your sonar! Test diving hoping it's the shipwreck only to find out it's huge rocks and trees!
It's a lot of work on Monday you go back to work to rest up from your overworked weekend! Then when you find one you don't want to go to work are you can think about is your new discovery! R.I.P. Master shipwreck hunter John Steel
