Equinox 800 and Excalibur II

Ohhh, new toys, how nice. Nice water machine and I hope that 800 works good for you too. I wondered if you were quitting or doing a reorganization. Glad it was the latter but with your wrist surgery was wondering. I am sure you will let us know what you think when you start using them.

The best part of the two new machines is that they were both paid for by recovery jobs in one year!

I've mentioned before that I'm on a site called theringfinders.com and the membership has paid off nicely. I average about two calls a month, more in the summer, less in the winter.

My rates are:

$1.10 per mile (one way)

$100.00 per hour (land recovery)

$125.00 per hour for water recovery (up to 3 feet deep)

$150.00 per hour for water recovery (3' - 5')

$200.00 per hour for water recovery ( 5' to 12') Plus scuba equipment rental

$400.00 per hour for water recovery (12' - 25') Plus scuba equipment rental (dive partner included)
