we were out on the island we hang at and a guy next to us pulled in his anchor. On the very point of his anchor was a gold wedding band. Would not have believed it if i wasnt there.

A couple years ago, after pulling up my anchor just outside of Eggmont Key, I pulled up an aluminum panel probably about 2 feet square or so. The panel was about 0.090 gage and it had two z-channel stringers fastened with 100-degree flush-head rivets running the length of the panel. The most interesting thing was what appeared to be a couple bullet holes in it. Based on the construction and color - lime green on one side and dark olive drab on the other side - it was clearly a piece of an aircraft. I wonder what story it could have told. The thing was nasty with some haevy barnacle growth, so I threw it back. When I got home I realized how dumb that was. I should have kept it.

Friend in the marine construction business was putting a new boat ramp in Cleveland found a car with a chinese man still in it. Still had his wallet and everything. Spooky. Made the local news. Guy was in there for 15-16 years.

Found an F150 in a small lake up in Maryland when I was a kid.
Turned out it was stolen and driven in there just for the helluvit.

I found my own anchor( expensive) a year after I lost it. My buddy pulled it up (150' of water) and I said "that's mine!" He said "bull****" But it had my name on it!

One extreme low tide , I looked under the dock behind my boat and there was a complete lower unit there stuck in the mud! Must have been there for years , pulled it up and was junk!!

As a kid , we used to drag the river with a grappeling hook off the back of my 13 whaler for kicks. Found some good antique bottles and a couple anchors. Actually made extra cash finding mooring anchors when their chains would break.

I was cruising up Lake George a couple of years ago and almost hit a piece of metal sticking out of the water. I turned around to see what it was, when I got up close to it I relized it was the tip of the mast of a 30' sailboat. The water is crystal clear in LG and I could see the boat directly below me.
