rwood,

I hope you guys can find the good samaritan's tug and recover it for him.

If the winds were 60+mph that would make the scale wind speed of your storm apocalyptic for the equivalent full size storm!

Great posts....thanks....wish I could of been there too.

Just a thought...my resuce tug and 1:24 schooner has no floatation...not enough room for it below...so I have a hatch with styro on the underside with kite string line attached that can float off if the boat goes down to mark her and let me pull her up to the surface....I hope I never need to use it.

It's in the works, but it's going to be a major challenge. We are going to need to get one (preferably two) guys into scuba gear and wetsuits to search for it. It went down in 12 feet of near-zero visibility water, and it's less than 12" long.

The reason for the poor visibility is the nature of the water: treated sewage.

Any volunteers?

Well, The water is well pretty zapped, biologically speaking, before it gets there and it is also diluted with water from a spring, the output from which is supposedly dedicated to keeping The Lake filled.

None the less, I believe that Spreckels is, as are the Chain of Lakes ponds, designated as aerification and 'settling ponds.'
