Default River diving-anyone?

Hi All,
As the weather often makes boat diving not the way to go I am planning more river dives locally-all shore dives no boat; I often go river diving when the weather doesn't cut it for boating because rain, high winds etc. don't matter in a river.

I have 3 sites: Winni River downtown in Laconia, one site in Tilton, one in Franklin. It will be shallow (less than 40 feet I would expect except Laconia which is alot less).

I hunt for old glass of any kind (liquor bottles, poison bottles, and inkwells, insulators, ceramic crocks-jugs). Guns are not unusual to find amongst other evidence of crime plus lots of stuff you'd never expect.

Each dive I plan to do w/an aluminum 80-nothing unusual for you to do or bring except a mesh bag and your gear.

If anyone wants to join me I plan on diving the next few days as long as the weather is sub-par.

River diving can be very interesting.

I'm not a diver but I sure enjoy seeing videos of the local waters and pics of what they give up.

Default Lake Opechee

Just wondering if anyone explore Lake Opechee?

My grandfather worked at the Scott & Williams plant for many years. The current location of the Opechee Inn and Spa was the location of a plant that made carburetors during WWII. When the war was over, the govt no longer need the parts and S&W had to dispose pallets of carburetors. I was told S&W drag the pallets over the ice and sank them in the middle of the lake as there was no market or needs for them. I often wonder if there will be other large scale surplus or possible machinery in Opechee. Lots of industry along the Union Ave side, Lakport and Messer Street through the years.
Someday may never be an actual day.

I wish I have seen this post earlier. Just the other day we were riding the Winni river trail and I was thinking that the area in Franklin by the rail road cars would be interesting to dive.
