Chain cutting a drydock in Texas City, this thing was chopped up into 3 parts to pick up. A fun job, sorry, no diving footage....
No, this was Bisso Marine and T&T, the guys filming are the History Channel guys. It started out as a doc**entary about people making doc**entaries, but we ended up hanging out with the film guys from LA and they turned out to be pretty cool. I didn't get as much footage as I wanted of them filming so this is what I came up with.
The chain cutting is so slow its hard to figure out what's going on, I think it was the salvage masters' first one so I ended up making 7-8 dives that day to go check stuff. We bottomed out the Ajax (A-Frame barge) on the top of the wall of the drydock and spent an extra 5 hours that night patching the barge. You can see the slavage master look in the hatch and he saw water come pouring in. This stuff obviously didn't make the TV show and I woulda been there to get footage of it coming out of the water but we got called to salvage that barge that got T-boned by a tanker in downtown New Orleans.
Salvage is hella fun!
