Hi, my name is Ashley Brooks and I am one of the contributing writers for this blog. My dad, Greg Brooks (see photo – that’s us!), started running Sub Sea Research full-time back in 1993 (It was then called Silver Bars). I was only six years old at that time, but I remember many things about the start of the company. Having a treasure salvager for a father colored my childhood in a very unique way, and I’m excited to share my memories and stories with you!
I will also be focusing on the history of the company in general when I post here, on a grander scope than just my memories and connections. While today, in 2012, Sub Sea Research is a world-renowned full scale business, its roots go all the way back to 1984. My dad’s love of adventure, history, and sunken relics took an idea and turned it into something profitable – something that would eventually employee dozens of others who share a similar dream. When a company spans over three decades, there are a LOT of stories to tell. It’s my job to compile all of these and bring to you both a personal and historical portrayal of how Sub Sea Research came into being, and how it has continued to thrive and become the corporation it is today.
Any posts by me will be tagged as written by “silverseas94”, or you can click “Posts by Ashley” on the side menu to see any of my stories. Look for new posts by me every Monday and Friday. Thanks for reading.
It would be nice to here about the day to day operation and what subsea is doing to pull up gold in those very heavy boxes.
John, we are under contractual obligations with National Geo and 60 Minutes which limits us in what we can publish. We will do our best to keep you updated. Thanks, Greg
