    Here in the Solomons we have plenty of WW2 history underwater. A couple of years ago we had a guest from NZ who‘s grandfather had flown fighter planes from Ondongo airstrip near Noro. We dived at the end of the airstrip where all the rubbish had been dumped 75 years ago. Aeroplane parts, ammo, bits and pieces of unrecognisable machinery - and hundreds of whiskey bottles! It’s seems those fighter pilots liked a drink. Quite understandable really.

    I dove last night at Lake Megunticook and found wedged between rocks (and a nearby tire) this pretty heavy and powerful magnet on a rope. My dive buddy said that they were fishing magnets used by people who throw them in to see what they might attract and haul in. Huh. Anyone else heard of magnetic fishing?

    Yes, people do it all over the world. Here on the Treasure Cost of Florida they have been doing magnet fishing in the swampy estuaries to find artifacts from possible treasure ships. If they get an iron artifact from a ship they know to look for treasure.

    My wife lost one my GoPros In Coz and the next day I found one, I looked at SD card on my phone and DM recognized the boat in video. We contacted dive operator and returned to owner. I always keep a return of address label in my housing and take a pick of hotel I’m staying at in case someone finds my camera. I guess it’s still waiting to be found.
