Magnet fishing is quite common on the Norfolk broads,  I have a magnet similar to the one being used.  Though mine is for rescue services... Fetching keys and other essentials dropped in the river. 

A friend, caught a BMW car without a magnet, it caught on his backstay when he had the mast dropped to go under a bridge. The car had been stolen / went missing 5 years before...

any river in a cities where they have those battery operated bikes.

Folks love to toss them into drink.

 

With a boat you can check next to bridges.

Friend used to do it scuba diving.

Got a lot of handguns that folks were disposing of.

Best done in fresh water.

what do you do with all the stuff you pull up?  Isn't 99.9% bound for recycling?

The bike was reunited with it's owner and the scootah was taken away by the cops.  Pretty interesting.  Any idea what that magnet cost? I know some marinas with a bunch of stuff in the mud, keys, phones, tools and various items.

Just look on YouTube for more info, the magnets aren’t that expensive from memory. 

Pick a city with docks and jetties, especially in a bad area. You’ll be amazed what you can find apparently, just make sure your shots are up to date.

I'm surprised they were pulling up dildo's in Amsterdam! I have found a couple of them snorkeling...

They make metal ones?  

For Terminator foreplay?

A magnet that can pick up a 99% plastic, and aluminum alloy scooter....... That's impressive.

 I looked on line, and the highest power one I could find was something like 1,300lbs.....

 If I got one, I'd like it to do 3-4X that.....

Never heard of the "Iron Maiden"?

 ETA: Oh, no...... That was something else......

 There's some heavy metal reference to a steam powered dildo though.....

Ha.   Yes.   But that was to prevent the opposite.   A barrier to entry from any object.

Ah! Yes...... Not heavy metal, but R&R...... "Steely Dan" was a steam powered dildo apparently.

Is that a euphemism I’m not familiar with??   Just asking for a friend. :P
