“My job is dope! I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to travel all over the US and be on several “once in a lifetime” jobs. So far in my career I have been able to work on the largest salvage in US history, pulling a train engine out of a river, building a 3-mile-long bridge, inspecting the largest dry dock in the US and now I am helping to build a submarine dry dock to house the US Navy’s largest class submarine. I have also been doing a ton of underwater welding and burning. It’s crazy the paths that life can take you on.”

This is one of the most exciting aspects of diving as it makes one think of “sunken treasure”. Salvage diving presents several unique challenges. Divers salvage ships and their cargos, aircraft and other vehicles and structures that have fallen or sunk in the water. Any body of water can provide a salvage job!
