SPAIN BOARDS ODYSSEY SHIP

Dick Johnson forwarded the latest story in the saga of Odyssey Marine's
latest salvage effort:

"The Spanish Civil Guard has intercepted a boat operated by a US company
amid a row over treasure from a shipwreck. The guard had been ordered by
a Spanish judge to seize the vessel as soon as it left the British colony
of Gibraltar.

"Gibraltar officials and Odyssey Marine Exploration, which owns the ship,
said Spain had boarded the ship illegally as it was in international
waters.

"In May, Odyssey said it had found $500m (253m) in coins from a 17th
Century wreck somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean.

"Madrid suspects the sunken galleon may either have been Spanish or
have gone down in Spanish waters."
