Apparently, someone figured out a way to raise sunken ships using
"smaller, more buoyant bodies" and was awarded patents in 1965 in the UK
and Germany. They tried to get a Dutch patent as well, but the Dutch
refused the patent because there was "prior art": a 1945 Carl Barks
Donald Duck story.
Incidentally, sorry about my last e-mail subject. That should have read
"Warren Spector to Pen Ducktales _Comic_" not Game.
