Let me re phrase what I said in my last comment: Any company OR PERSON who would jeopardise either of the ships I have mentioned should be arrested for treason!

The cat and mouse game continues. Indy sitting off the coast near Alang. I'm also surprised that i've not received any lawsuit threats from people claiming to represent the criminal enterprise (also known as the "Indian Ship Recycling Industry") as happened last year. The case plays on, and GMS is still not off the hook yet.

Hi . . .There was another SS Independence - wrecked near the coast of San Fran - almost 100 years before this ghost ship. There were more than 200 people who lost their lives, two in particular, who were connected to a a deeper story of intrigue, mystery, and history. There is a story to tell - I am a writer, a scuba diver - lived in San Fran in the early 90s, and restored the NC home of the foremost expert on light houses who also invented the modern day technology for lights in lighthouses - in the world- he earned his PHD at 19,entered the Coast Guard when newly formed and was a high ranking officer when he retired. So what has this to do with your blog - not sure yet but it could be interesting. By the way - I have original documents and letters on the first SS Independence - including a ticket! (1853)

i worked in the engine room,it was the best time of my life 1990-1994 brendan

I came to the u.s.a in 1952 aboard the independence ship, me as a 10 yr old my brother at 14 yr. old my sister at 17 yr. old and my mother, for 8 days on the liner, i was sick the whole 8 days but i would do it over, and over again to get to this wonderful country, last year i went to visit my town in napels and had a tour throughout italy, i was so happy to get back to u.s.a.
