Hi.was watching on discovery channel a program about the nights templars and there lost treasure. The say that the went up to us coast but nothing has been found really. If you stumbled across a shipwreck of the nights templars it would be like hitting the jackpot, not so much in treasure but most important the historical impact it would have. I am a ex sailor and did diving as a hobby, retired now but still my main pashion are ship wrecks of historical significance.
