[Noisebridge-discuss] Free yacht (pirate ketch) in Berkeley

The benefit to putting the buoyancy apparati in the boat, as opposed to
above it and pulling it up, is that the air mattresses / kiddie pools / etc
also displaces the water.  Your method would work equally well (or better)
until you get to the surface, at which point it is really going to help
things if the boat floats on its own. I believe.

I have reached out to some SCUBA certified friends.  First question is on
depth, of course.

What depth is it at?   What is the length of the boat?   What is the model
of the boat?

Hi guys,

There's a boat that sunk in the berkeley marina, and I thought it would be
a fun challenge to get it back up and out. If we do we can keep it. A
noisebridge pirate boat!

Rrrrrrrrrrr. ;)
