    More glass from the past: "Whistle" soda ( Pat'd 1926 ), J & A McKechnie Canandaigua Beer ( MM from N.Y. ), a nice old black glass beer, clay pipe bowl, 3 in 1 oil and some more river glassware! Gotta luv the summertime hunt!

    ❤️ Those Round Bottoms!

    Indeed, those Belfast RB's have nice raised lettering & heavy, thick glass. Most of the ones I've found are un-embossed, but I have 3 now that are embossed: Ross's / Belfast, Cochrane / Belfast & a Campbells - Medical Hall / Montreal. The Ross bottle is incredibly minty, shiny & scratch-less -...

    ❤️ Those Round Bottoms!

    Hi R-O-T-R’s! Yes indeed, the water’s velvety embrace makes for weightless, cool and comfortable hunting! Just be sure to do a refresh with your LDS prior to re-submergence - safety first!

    The MilkMan cometh...

    I bought a fishing kayak to dive from a few years back, but found it to be too much of a pain to use. I think it would work well for surface harvesting though.

    The MilkMan cometh...

    Four hours on my u/w scooter produced more milk bottles, a very clean, scratch-free flask and a little Horlick's malted milk jar. The flask & two milks came out of the sand, the rest were mid-river, a few displaying some 'river-rash' from years of tumbling about the rocky river bottom.

    Milks & A Honey Blue

    Haha, you've got it, Len!

    Milks & A Honey Blue

    Left the underwater scooter at home to try out my new prescription mask; the entire lens is designed for close-up viewing - what a change! I can see like the 14 year-old I was when I first started diving & hunting for treasure. Probably would have missed the milks, as they lay amongst rocks and...

    Found a brand new 1800s farm dump. Some nice stuff and a big crier

    Can't wait to see what else you pull out of that site - all the luck!

    Best way to find bottles that were dumped in a deep, muddy river?

    Depends on the bottom material's consistency, the depth of the material ( over the hard, natural bottom below the sediment ) & the average rate of flow at the river bottom. If the bottom sediment is deep and the water flow isn't sufficient to substantially move the sediments downstream, then...

    Best way to find bottles that were dumped in a deep, muddy river?

    As an inveterate river-diver, I think I can help. The swift current may indeed have pushed bottles "way downstream", but that would depend on a number of factors, such as bottom material consistency, bottom elevation changes, obstructions ( natural and man-made ). These factors would contribute...

    1st Dive of the Season Find

    Not a bottle, but my 2nd favourite item to find - Crockery! No name, no stencilling, but of a shape I have yet to find. Unsure of it's d.o.m., or who may have created it, but it will find a place on my shelf as a pleasure to look at and a fond memory of it's discovery.

    1830 shipwreck with bottles!

    So, this thread got me recalling my very first contract as a Deepsea Diver - a 4-month stint in the Bay of Campeche', Mexico. The barge I worked on was known as a 'utility barge', in that it could do a number of tasks, however, its' principal task was to bury 36" pipeline into the seafloor. To...

    Browns Beverags Bottles with a brief history

    I'm always hunting for more J.D. Brown bottles, especially the gravitator soda. Here are a few of my finds thus far:

    Tin Salvage, Straits of Taiwan, 1985 ( a deepsea yarn...)

    3 years into retirement & still catching up on the honey-do list, spending max time underwater hunting treasures - I might pen a book when I'm 90! Glad you enjoyed the read! DSD
