ORRV Adds New Boat to Its Treasure Hunting Fleet

PEORIA, IL--(Marketwire - April 7, 2010) - Oceanic Research and Recovery Inc. (PINKSHEETS: ORRV), a marine salvage and exploration company, today announced it has acquired a new boat for its treasure salvage operations.

The new boat is a 35 foot long Chriscraft that was originally bought and outfitted for treasure hunting by Art Hartman. With a new 4 cylinder John Deere diesel engine, air conditioned main cabin, accommodations for 4 people and 28 inch blower mounted on the stern she will make an excellent addition to the company's specialized treasure hunting fleet.

 "Just like the Beacon, which has recovered millions of dollars in treasure from several galleons over the years, Art used her to recover millions off the Maravilla and the 1715 wrecks," said Scott Heimdal. "She's a lucky boat and we're happy to have her."

"Besides being a great dive boat, she'll also make an excellent survey platform for use of the company's gradiometer and side scan sonar while being able to do double duty as a light blower boat for shallow water excavations," said Mr. Heimdal, CEO of the company.
