..............Floating off Muriwai today. The Charter boat I crew on was fishing approx 3 miles off the beach. Picked it up along with approx 200m of line and a backbone that had obviously been the victim of sharks.
If you lost one or know of someone who did, pm me with details of the make and the serial number and I will return it.

I have emailed the manufacturers/Distributor to see if they can help locate the owner.
Unfortunately there are no details either on the outside or inside to identify who's it is.............

Owner found and torpedo returned. It was a gift from his elderly mother whom he has been caring for over the last 15-20 yrs.
She saved up the money from her pension to buy it as a thank you for all he has done for her.

There are a lot more "good buggers around"  than we think or believe there are.
