Over the years many odd items.. among them...

New flush toilet with tank at San Nicholas Island in upright position; good for a laugh

Near-new speargun and spear near Point Dume pinnacles - wondered what happened to the diver

New split fin at La Jolla Shores - gave it to the local dive shop as I use JetFins and have 2 legs

New mask and snorkel at Eagle Rock - gave to freediving daughter

New snorkel at Bird rock - still use it - its my favorite

Crashed Beechcraft twin engine airplane off Bimini in 12 foot water in sand; still trying to get a fix on its numbers from the FAA (they are reassigned). Left it in place.

About a dozen bricks of C4 simulated explosive at Castaic - were lost by the FBI dive team on a taining exercise in the murky depths. Also left most in place - thought they were real at first.

Unexploded 16" shell at San Clemente; left it in place also and got the heck out of the area!

New folding anchor at Castaic - on my dive float - thanks to whomever lost it!

Two rails of track in Mendocino - funny thing, no railway nearby.

And the usual assortment of fising line, lures, plastic bags, beverage cans, etc... deposited in local trash receptacles...
