He has worked over 300 shipwrecks including the Taj Mahal Treasure and the famed galleon Concepcion.
The Concepcion; not to be confused with a ship baring the same name, Nuestra Senora de la Concepcion which sank in 1638 near the southernmost point of Saipan, the second Concepcion sank in 1641, 70 miles off the northern coast of the Dominican Republic upon the coral reefs known as the Silver Bank.
"Fizz” as he is known to friends, directed part of the salvage diving of the Santa Margarita, sister ship to the Nuestra Senora de Atocha, which was discovered by Mel Fisher.
