So I found 2 divers this weekend who were willing to dive on the anchor and chain for some beer
, unfortunately, they didn't find it. Though they did find an anchor off of a large ship, which they might salvage
and sell! Since the water in the river was tidal, when they began searching, they had some trouble due to current, but afterward during the tide change, the current stopped and it was a bit easier for them, though the visibility went down I guess.
So no anchor recovery, though I will be getting my dive certs next month, and my best friend is a very experienced diver, so we will be diving
for it again!
Apparently there's a ton of stuff down there, but the bottom is smooth gravel and fairly clean with no silt. They also found a large steel
cable and a few old pilings in that area which they think my anchor is stuck on.
