Yep. Interesting site.

"NUMA is a 501c3 non-profit with no full-time staff. The majority of funding (more than 95%) for NUMA comes from royalties from Clive Cussler’s best-selling novels. In order to keep those funds focused on preserving our maritime history, we have devised this page of commonly asked questions and answers to help reduce administrative overhead for NUMA." --

I found this site while looking for good candidates for the Dec 13th expedition in the Bay area. Some interesting hits for James River civil war wrecks. I'll post more on that later.

Enjoy the read!
