Once the object is located various rigging techniques will be used to safely bring it to the surface. Students will be required to have their own lift bag of at least 50 lbs lift, and 2 marker buoys. It is suggested that students have completed the Underwater Navigation Specialty prior to this course.

underwater search and recovery course Certification will be issued following student's safe demonstration of search and recovery techniques.

Lift Bag use, Curtesy of Subsalive USA

Over 4 dives the students combine the use of a compass underwater and the various ways to locate and recover lost items.

It's Archimedes Principle and Boyles Law.

What makes lift bags work? The great Greek scientist Archimedes discovered the property: buoyancy. According to Archimedes Principle, "any body wholly or partially submerged in a fluid is buoyed up by a force equal to the weight of the fluid displaced. Robert Boyle discovered the relationship of volume and pressure.." Because of these laws of physics, a liftbag that weighs only 26 lbs. on land can raise an object weighing a ton from the ocean bottom.
