GlassDave,

I'll go anytime you'd like. I did it for my last employer (Sheriff's Office) but we recovered people more than boats...
If you are comfortable in the water, it's not a big deal.

Don't suppose they found the engine from last year?

On a somewhat related note...
If you're interested in diving, read "Shadow Divers." I just finished with it. It's about some guys out of Brielle, NJ who found a WWII U-boat in about 230' of water that nobody knew was there. Great book.

good article. $500/hr is 4000. Is that close?

we were 30feet from that boat when it went down. The Captain Morgan carver was idling between us and them, they all had the CM turned up an all of a sudden they were jumping off the boat. I hate to see it happen, but it was almost comical to watch. That was the first time I had ever seen a boat sink, and it was amazing. The bow just went straight up in the air and sat there for about 2-3 minutes, then it slowly descended. No one even seemed upset, they all just sat there and watched it slip away.

My brother does this kind of work. If anybody in Mi needs something done let me know, I think they get 600.00 and hour for diving time but there is 4 of them and they have re breathers that allow them to work at depth a lot longer, with regular oxygen at 100 ft you can only stay down for 10 minutes, with a re breather I think its like 30 to 40 minutes. They can usually bring up a 40' boat from 100' in about 2 to 3 hours., Buck
