Captain Dom was appointed the first federal substitute custodian of the abandoned shipwreck site. Later, the court substituted Jupiter Wreck Inc. (JWI), a newly formed Florida corporation, for Captain Dom’s name.
At that time, neither the lifeguard nor Captain Dom knew that the discovery laws would undergo a major change and play a large part in the rules affecting the future rights of others who researched and recovered historic shipwrecks. With the change in laws, the captain became the last person who could “stake his claim” on a shipwreck in the state of Florida.
Based on the true story of Captain Dominic Addario. "Treasure Diving with Captain Dom" will draw you into the fascinating world of undersea exploration. Finding sunken treasure made easy to understand. 56 pages, beautiful full color, large paperback, with educational glossary.
