About The BLU3 Nemo Dive System, written by the BLU3 team:
Just Breathe™ with Nemo, BLU3’s tankless and airline-friendly diving system that has revolutionized the industry. Designed to support one diver up to 10 feet for 60-90 minutes, Nemo is the perfect cross between snorkeling and diving –a new wave allowing you to explore the underworld without bulky gear and heavy equipment. Whether you’re a treasure hunter, snorkeler, or diver, Nemo will take your everyday adventures beyond the surface.
"The Nemo is a fantastic device to use in shallow swimming areas for underwater exploration and treasure hunting. I used the Nemo in the freshwater lakes of upstate SC, and it allowed me to stay underwater for over an hour with each battery. With the help of the Nemo and my metal detector I have found 3 rings in just a few dives." - Kellyco Test Team Member, Southern Relics
About The Brownie's Third Lung, written by Grant Gitschlag, 1715 Boat Captain:
For shallow water treasure salvage, one of the most useful tools in our bag of tricks is our Brownie’s Third Lung. Having used scuba every year prior in commercial treasure salvage, I can absolutely say the Brownie’s surface supply is much easier and more efficient than a tank/bc setup. Not only is it less bulky, both on deck and underwater, but in a high energy surf environment (and extremely limited visibility), it keeps the diver tethered to the boat in such a way that they don’t get swept out of the excavation (this has happened to me many times with a scuba setup).
The further benefit of the Brownies is that the diver has the ability to get into difficult-to-reach areas of the underwater terrain where treasure likes to settle, such as deep ledges. In the past, I have had to completely remove my scuba and keep the regulator clenched in my mouth as I crawl into these spots to retrieve coins. With the Brownie’s, I can shimmy any which way I need to put treasure on deck. The unit also barely uses any fuel! A major expense during the diving season is the time and cost of having to buy scuba tanks, drive to the dive shops in the area, and fill them. One gallon of gasoline keeps the Brownie’s Third Lung running all day long and then some! It never struggles to keep up with the oxygen needs of my divers, no matter how much they are exerting themselves. Overall, the Brownie’s Third Lung has made our treasure season much more successful and I would recommend it to any operation, commercial or otherwise.
