    I never met Bob Lorenz. He was a little before my time. I was certified in 1980 but I have heard his name before. I worked in a dive shop on Catalina Island where Lorenz and hardy where a big name. I never knew that he was from clearlake. Is Ron Prevelka a member of this forum? I've never met him. I've only met a hand full of other divers that dive clearlake. Today's find was a old milk bottle dated 1908. There's a old model A that can be seen during low and clear water here. Rumble seats open but it's so rotten if you touch it falls apart.

    If it's a B17 it'll probably be in 1 piece, if it's a B24 it'll be broken into at least 2 pieces since the fuselage immediatly behind the wing was a weak spot and B24's almost always broke there when they contacted the water.
