Peter Sachs (Proprietor of Alpha Maritime), started his diving career salvaging lost cargos from shipwrecks off the Southern African coast and the Indian Ocean. As owner of the Closed Corporation,
Sachs Salvage CC, Peter initiated, financed and facilitated the recovery of thousands of tonnes of sunken cargoes from shipwrecks. A comprehensive account of these salvage operations is
currently under construction and appears in the
Shipwreck Exploration section on these pages.
Here in Canada, Alpha Maritime has completed a number of salvage operations involving sunken vessels and even a capsized float home.
