    The three I've got were found by swimming over them, attaching a lift bag, and getting an OC buddy to blow up the bag for me!! Bugger the chisels, punches, and hammers!!!!!!

    One of them did have some plate on it that needed cleaning off, but mostly they were free of "encumberances".

    Im with Pete on this one.

    Nice ripe wreck with fruit ready to drop or dropped is the best. If they drop and sit in the sand for long they can get pitted though.

    Its nice when the plating is rusted enough to yield to a nice sharp axe. Few good chops around the hole and a bit of a wriggle and its come to papa!

    Anything more is too much like hard work, plenty of easy holes around.
