    Anyone do work in the Salvage field? Setting balloons, clearing props etc...?

    I'm interested in getting into it. I've been diving a while for fun and get asked on occasion to help another boater out to check an anchor, clear a prop, retrieve something dropped and it's people I know, so payment is dinner or $100, nothing formal.

    I'm getting asked by commercial folks now, tug companies, marinas so the expectations will be higher, which I'm fine with, but it would be good to talk to folk about it. What's expected or used? What equipment might I need? What to charge, at least to start. I can eventually figure it out on my own, I'm a Carpenter by trade and know how to figure things out and work up to charging more as my skills increase, but it helps to talk to someone who has done it and get to second base.

    Thanks
