ashnikes Posted June 20, 2010 Share Posted June 20, 2010 do you own or have you found any underwater caches, what was used as the container, and how was / is it holding up to the environment? Im thinking about sinking my second underwater cache, the first one was a bpa free nalgene roped and carabeinerd to a cinderblock which was attached to the dock it was placed under by a nylon tie line, had it not been muggled due to obvious yellow on brown rope, and the later found out high concentration of snorklers in the area, it would have lasted quite some time... the next cache I hide, will be a plastic tuperware pitcher, with a screw on lid, which i am going to make a line on from cap to bottle, so people know how far it needs to be screwed on to keep it dry, im tying a weight on to the handle so its weighed down from the outside and more room is left open on the inside for swag. then im tying a lengthy piece of black nylon rope to the handle, long enough to make the journey form the surface to the bottom twice, (just in case) then im tying a piece or two of fishing line to the black rope and securing this barely able to be seen fishing line to a nail of some sort and pounding that inbetween some rocks near the shore, then marking the area where the line is with a black dot, and informing the cachers on the cache page under the hint section to look near the black dot for some invisable string and pull on it. we shall see how long this holds up, but just as a back up protective measure, the log will be inside a ziplock baggie, or perhaps a small second waterproof container, Quote Link to comment
