They followed me.
Yesterday they took 4 muskets and 2 swords, lots of copper pans, and a pistol and some nice things. I found a pistol and a pile of musket balls, plus a few decorative things. That's piracy for you . Luckily it was a big ship , which I am not sure they realise...
I wouldn't mind so much but they are ignorant idiots, they don't have a clue what they are taking they are just greedily taking anything they can without any regard to how they will preserve anything, Mostly they just break anything that is encrusted to see if it is silver or gold, if not they just discard it. I saw them breaking timbers off the ship too, which is just vandalism. I don't usually wish people harm , but in their case I'll make an exception, a plague on them and their houses !
I abandoned the wreck , they were diving on it with 2 boats for the last 2 days. While they were busy with that I have found $2000 worth of gold, including a 15g 23k ring that is over 100 years old! My size too. I will post pics soon.
When I set out, I said I needed to find $3000 on this trip, well, after a slow start I think I have passed my target . I still have all my treasure , just need to pay the rent we owe which is maybe $500 . I have about a week left to try and haul in a few more fat wedding bands, then we will try and prepare to drive to Spain for a few months. Unfortunately the pirates are following me and are onto my gold now I have another couple of spots that may pay out if I am lucky . What really pisses me off is that they have all the gear that anyone could need and they follow me instead of using it to find their own spots.
