Looks pretty similar

Hi all,

went out with the kids for swimming and found this on the way out to their favorite beach:

Hm, looks pretty much like the wreck I found in May about 1.5 km away.

Dove there three days ago and found: NO BOAT!!! Sabotage!

The only thing I found was a mooring stone with 8 metres of stainless (!) steel chain and two (!) buoys attached to it. All the way down in 20 metres.

The funny thing about it: The second buoy was attached with a 5 metres rope to the first buoy and had a writing on it saying: " Water Police. Please do not remove!"  ???

So I called them and asked if this writing is still valid, if found in 20 metres. My colleague laughed and asked where this happened and if he should send someone to recover the buoy. I told him to send someone to pick up the buoy at my boat ---> next coffee on nightshift for free  ;D.

Regards / Harry

Sh//////t!
I'm discovered  :(. But excused as well, he he! -----> Federal Law breaks State's Law  >:D!

No need to get jealous Whiz!
Wait until you find the bridge. I bet there are tons of stuff to recover. And I bet it will not be just anchors! One thing I learned: Bridges that once crossed a creek or stream are the best places to find that kind of stuff, people wanted to get rid off. Mostly stolen stuff like vending mashines, bikes, scooter, motorcycles, vaults (!), stereos etc. etc. But other "interesting" things as well: Old washmashines, fridges, weapons, ammo..... That's what shows up under the bridges around here
Also check targets which don't have a "shadow" and are in the middle of nowhere. Having the clear shape of a boat on the screen is more exiting, no question, but these targets are also worth to dive and have fun.

Good luck and hang loose
Harry

If you find the bridge, be carefull for clochards.
