These photos are one of a kind, never before seen pics showing the ship being transformed into a treasure hunting workhorse. The ship was originally named the A.T. Cameron, then the Arctic Ranger. In the winter of 1987-1988, the Columbus America Discovery Group and Tommy Thompson purchased the ship and changed her name once again, to the Arctic Discoverer. These photos show the transformation of the ship. Once finished, the ship had a GPS positioning system that would hold it in place over the wreck of the SS Central America. It had a 12,000 lb. robot named NEMO that was used to retrieve the gold and artifacts. The front room of the main deck was transformed into a high tech computer monitoring system that tracked and controlled the movements of NEMO while it was working. The Arctic Discoverer truly was the first high tech and most famous treasure hunting ship in US History!
