Kellyco Galleon Hunt by Bob "Frogfoot" Weller

Galleon Hunt is the life story of Art McKee, the "Grandfather" of salvage diving in the Florida Keys. It is also the story of the Spanish treasure galleon "Genovesa" which sank on the Pedro Shoals near Jamaica in 1730. For almost 100 years the location of the Genovesa eluded salvors, including McKee who made five unsuccessful expeditions to the shoals in search of the galleon. On his sixth, and last expedition in 1979, his group finally located the wreck site and recovered treasure.

The Jamaican government put the shoals "off limits" to salvage divers for the next 10 years, and the Genovesa became the plum of potential treasure salvors. Only recently has the government begun negotiations to allow salvage on the shoals. This book provides charts and exact location of the Genovesa, and colored photos taken during the salvage. Numerous black & white photos show salvage of the 1733 fleet galleons in the Florida keys, along with the treasures recovered.

The Weller diving team, "Frogfoot" and Margaret, have been salvaging treasure from the 1715 Spanish Plate Fleet since 1978. Bob, an ex-frogman from the Korean War, has been salvaging in the Florida Keys since 1960. Together they have recovered some great treasures, but their greatest treasure is the friends they have made in the treasure diving community.

Bob is the author of "Sunken Treasure on Florida Reefs", and "Famous Shipwrecks of the Florida Keys."
