    They found a massive shipwreck full of gold buillion and want a piece of the action on it?

    Turning off the transponder is wise. They realized they are searching for a debris field and not an aircraft so the search areas are vastly different?

    Or, it could be that they have the location of the crash pinned before they started so the search they did was just for show and they already knew where to look.

    More speculation; sorry.

    From the article:
    1. They were requested to turn off heir transponder by some government/military - theory 1.

    2. They found something they were not ready to share with the world and scavenger hunters - theory 2.

    3. Technical difficulties, nothing to see here, Jody spilled coffee on the panel is all, oops - theory 3.

    The Seabed Constructor just left* Henderson. - (Henderson = south of Perth and Fremantle in WA)

    Question is why spending so many days in port while having only a 90 days search window . . . ?

    P.S. - * Departure was 11 Feb 2018 16:17 UTC. She's doing 13.9 knots / 302°, and she's rounding the northeast side of Rottnest Island at the time of this posting.

    The above link leads to a almost live and real time position map under normal and usual conditions, in this case it's only live and real time as long as Seabed Constructor AIS updates are received and displayed by the linked site.

    Seabed Constructor is now North off Rottnest Island and is heading West (13.1 knots / 269°).

    As soon as no more Seabed Constructor AIS updates appeared, ‘‘another’’ vessel appeared in front of her on her course, only identified as Tugs & Special Craft, that one is still continuing . . . .
