"We enter the wrecks, armed to the teeth, to look for the blackbox recorder that will satisfy the shareholders’ need for closure and give the lawyers someone to sue. They pay us like shit, but as long as they get that blackbox back, we can keep anything else we find; use it, trade it, sell it... provided we get to it first."
This business attracts a certain type of person - the hopeless, the lost, the wash-ups and the wash-outs. Put it this way – they all have something to gain, and not a lot left to lose, but give them a uniform and a sense of purpose and you never know what they might achieve. It’s a good living… provided you stay alive.”
