I wonder what treasures lie at the bottom of our own canals.

Our canals are probably filled with suitcases full of body parts.

Actually did a stint - shit shoveling on the royal, once upon a time.

If ya can pull ferrous metal out of a canal with a magnet it would want to not have been in the water for any length (weeks) of time. Who would want an unusable "showpiece" of which regardless - would get ya 10 years if caught with it. Also ya would want to be able to prove ya innocently stumbled across that glock, least ya find herself getting stung for a gangland hit or three.

Re: I wonder what treasures lie at the bottom of our own canals.

Seriously - you'd throw half of those back :)

Kind of uncomfortable watching the bit where they were cranking the bikes out with the hoist - and they had strapped the young lad to it, and him then being held by the other chap trying to anchor himself in the mud behind.

Had visions of the whole shooting caboodle ending up in the drink and them not being able to get him loose

Re: I wonder what treasures lie at the bottom of our own canals.

Myself and another lad on here did a spot of magnet fishing off the Boyne docks and below the Gormanston bridge, caught nawtin but rusty rubbish - not even a bicycle whale. Still had a lark and will try other places. Loads of mainly merican vids on d'tube.

Re: I wonder what treasures lie at the bottom of our own canals.

There was a guy on d'telly one night pulled a grenade out of a canal in london.
He called the feds who called the bomb disposal crowd just to be sure even though it was there since ww2.
Turned out it wasn't a dud the explosion was fookin huge

Seriously doubt ya would get a live one from a canal after all those years, that said though, the blast would be huge from the detonation charge as it'd have to penetrate the fragmentation shell.

The grenade wasn't live. The explosion used to detonate it was.

Re: I wonder what treasures lie at the bottom of our own canals.

There's a video of a fella pulling up a scooter out of a canal in the red light district in Amsterdam, loads of cops turned up with a crane and hoisted it out, I'd love to see the reaction here, they'd probably tell you put it back where you found it

Edit: wasn't the red light district he has another video of that, Bondi treasure hunter is the you tube channel.

Re: I wonder what treasures lie at the bottom of our own canals.

They cleaned part of the canal up near me. Shopping trolleys and bicycles. I was stuck for a rear 26" wheel. They had one up on the bank. Whipped off the wheels. Sorted.

It's the shock from the secondary charge that sets it off so it doesn't need to be much more than a loud crack.It doesn't need to penetrate anything.
The cops and bomb disposal lads were surprised at the blast,having thought it would be dead by now.
But hey,I guess you blokes know more than them
