Abaco Gold is the adventure story of the Carson family on summer break in the Bahamas Islands, intending to spend leisurely days fishing, scuba diving and picnicking on board their sport fishing boat, Bimini Twist. Upon discovering the wreckage of an ancient galleon laden with rare artifacts, they petition the government in Nassau to excavate the site and create a museum for the world to enjoy this bounty. High seas action ensues as the forces for historic recovery and restoration battle the forces of greed and corruption intent on plundering the site for its bounty of gold and jewels.
Abaco Gold is the continuing story of the adventures of Max Carson with his teenage sons P.J. and Gaffer on board their sportfishing boat Bimini Twist. The action takes place in the beautiful chain of islands knows an Abaco in the Bahamas Islands. While a group of dedicated marine archaeologists works to recover artifacts from a treasure galleon with a view toward creating a maritime museum in the capital city of Nassau, more sinister forces are at work to plunder the underwater artifacts for their own personal enrichment. The Carsons spend their summer vacation working with the treasure salvers to help protect the artifacts and bring them to the surface while assisting the Royal Bahamas Defense Force to foil the plans of the treasure jumpers.
