You better hope not. The people who find it do not come back. Otherwise, there is no such thing.

The real question is ------------ What would we do if there were no hypothetical questions?

the 3000 mile trip I am planning on my 30 foot sloop will be done after a hurricane season when I am good and ready.It is also a well traveled path so I am told.I also dont think there is such a thing but I think the atlantic is a screwed up body of water

Man I for one love this stuff all the mystery of vanished ships time portals aliens lost city mumbo jumbo still makes for the best of stories. I drifted around out in the gulf stream between Ft Lauderdale and the Bahamas allot and it is always a spooky thing to bring up.The truth may be that its a big ocean and they never found the wreck or survivors because they looked left at the moment they passed the spot on the right where the ship or plane was down or sunk. I often thought growing up that they were hit by mega bolts of lightning and vaporised but then I drank another beer and aliens seemed more likely. Don''t fear what could be out in the deep blue sea but never loose respect for what is out there. Out of the darkness came the huge cloud and the tiny yacht was gone without a trace and the last thing her owner saw was, "Regestered in Libearia"

The *Huge Cloud* was "Regestered in Libearia"? The skipper just may not have seen the tiny yacht because he was preocupied fighting that crotch infestation by the fleas of a thousand camels!

Denr is an unknown quantity at this point

Keep up the levity Walt or you''ll turn into a pocket protector like Jeff H!!

I just saw a Discovery channel special on the Bermuda Triangle mystery, current theory is that this area of the Atlantic contains a lot of natural gas deposits (funny I do too) and from time to time, there are huge eruptions of natural gas from the sea bed causing enormous bubbles that can change the buoyancy of a normally sea worthy vessel, causing it to sink.

Like those elusive Weapons of Mass Destruction, these gas bubbles may be difficult to find!

Ya I saw the gas bubble thing that could be I guess. I also grew up in FtLauderdale In the late fifties we as kids played at the airport now known as Ft Lauderdale International we had all the old surplus WW2 fighters and bombers and evey kind of bird you could think of as a play ground and I hung around the airport allot at Mackey Airlines and Broward Mosquito Control because if you hung around enough you could get a ride sometimes a wild ride and allot of wild stories came out of those pilots. I think allot of the story has been lost and will never be told.People cant handle the truth sometimes.
