    That's a great story. I can just imagine the look on the losers face when he was arrested...over a friggen watch and insurance fraud. What a loser. I've recovered some really nice stuff, including a 4 carat diamond ring a very rich woman dropped from a boat in Old Harbor (Block Island in 1987). I got paid $200.00 for 22 minutes under water. My rate, no matter the value of the item, was (remember, this was over 20 years ago) $50.00 for every 10 minutes underwater, plus an additional $25.00 if I find the item. I did pretty well with tips and all. I kept my dive gear nearby, so it was always an easy job to get in and out. Each time I got a job, the harbor master got a case of Bud, because he was the one who they call to ask for a diver. Gotta keep him happy!
