Filming with the Deep Sea Detectives
In the spring of 2006, Jerry Fortenberry was host to John Chatterton, and Richie Kohler. Chatterton and Kohler are featured as the "Deep Sea Detectives" on the History Channel. Chatterton is credited with the discovery of the unidentified German U-Boat that was located about 60 miles off the New Jersey shore. After identifying the U-Boat, history was rewritten. Chatterton and Kohler are pioneers in the world of diving, you can learn more about them and their diving experiences in books like, "Shadow Divers" and "The Last Dive".
Jerry was asked to guide them to the artifact and fossil hunting areas of the Cooper River in Charleston S.C.. They spent three days filming a show featuring the Cooper River and the treasures that can be found.
