    This a great thread, probably a great representation why SB will live forever.

    Yes "divers" are a community, a community of humans.
    Wouldn't cutting this line without removing it create a serious problem?

    Didn't seem to be the first response for the current owner of this reel.

    Yes he did.... he run a line from a bus to a helicopter (for an ocean diver that statement is soooo funny I can't even began to convey how hilarious that is).

    seriously ... I'm an ocean diver so the concept of leaving something underwater for the next dive without a buoy is mind bugling. Never mind something supposedly valuable.

    bus, helicopter, firetruck... again ocean diver here, I only get to see marine creatures, rocks and some debris after holiday weekends, but this is the description of quite an entertaining location.
    Appears to have lots of divers coming and going... why would any one leave gear behind?

    that's just a funny assumption.

    Based on the opinions above it seems like an object was left by a diver and removed by another.

    The Reel has been turned into Dutch staff Yesterday. I would like to thank all of my dive buddy's that posted about the reel . If it weren't such a small community I don't think it would have been returned.
    Thanks for everyone's help in this matter.
