It was just another day at work for Brent, scanning the floor of the ocean off the coast of Florida, whose company Queens Jewels LLC owns “salvaging rights” to 1715 fleet, a group of 11 Spanish ships which sank somewhere off the shore of Florida.
And then Brent stuck gold, literally. He has unearthed jewels from one of the sunken ships, gold coins to be precise, which are worth over 1 million dollars in value.
Lucky for Brent, he was wearing helmet camera on this particular day and was able to capture the exact moment he discovered gold coins on the sea bed. However, the quality of the video, as you see below, did not show gold as gold. There’s just too much haze. So what I did was clean up the video footage of the discovery with CUVI’s underwater filter and you can actually feel the difference.
Enjoy the moments.
