Got my first dive of 2020 in last night, a drift of the West Branch of the Upper Niagara River. The River separates Canada from the United States. Well, I seem to have come across quite the find. I believe I have come across a bootleg running craft from the Prohibition era. It is the remains of what appears to be a 40' +/- wood skiff (likely an inboard), and in the remains, there are probably between 500 and 1,000 beer bottles from a brewery in Ft. Wayne Indiana. I got these 5 bottles (all I could hold and run my float reel.
We frequently discuss out finds, but in all my time here, I have never heard anyone discuss any such find of this magnitude....
Later this week, we may try to find it again. It is a "hot drop" in a 3+ knot current, so it might be a bit of a challenge to locate again.
Getting the camera ready for the next time.
My PRAM continues to be so enjoyable to use......
