Default Today Brought Me Keys and a Window, Tomorrow...

Two calls today. One for a set of keys in a canal and the other at a marina for an isinglass boat window. Both successful recoveries.

Because of the high water I was asked to raise a boat lift tomorrow and seek a college class ring that went for a swim a couple of years ago in a canal behind a home. Will see what other crazy things happen this weekend. Still too cold for me to play finding my own treasure.

That thing got a hemi? haha! Do you ever have to worry about or check the harbors for live electrical currents/hot wires in the water when diving? Is that something common to look out for?

I ALWAYS check for electricity when in a marina. I bought a Shock Alert from Amazon two years ago and use it without fail. Yes it is common to have wayward electricity in the water. I refuse to have a shocking experience!

Scuba-detector, whenever I log into the beach/water section of FMDF, I immediately scan to see if you've made any recent posts. Your exploits are the perfect mesh of md'ing + scuba + human relations. You can't get any better than that. Job well done as usual !

WTG Scuba, you're braver than me. I don't want to get brain freeze. Looks like you're busy as can be already. Good luck this season.

Side and rear windows on boats are lost all the time. Easy to feel and find
