At best Rondeau is ill informed, at worst in a self obsessed world of his own convinced of his own self importance.
To suggest that the trident crews are looting the Lagarto clearly shows the lack of research that Rondeau has undertaken before publishing this drivel.
FACT : when discovered by Trident the necessary authorites where informed as a priority.
FACT : They worked closely with the US Navy to confirm the identity of the Largarto including diving the wreck with them.
FACT :Surviving family members are thrilled to know where there loved ones now rest, and some even flew out and visited the site themselves! with the crew on board the trident.
FACT Rondeau is now guilty of defamation of character and should be ashamed of himself for using famous names in a attempt to better his own.
Finally if it wasn't for the Trident crew and there dedication, there would not be any discussion to start with as the boats would still be lying undiscovered and crumbling to nothing throughout this region.
