Shipwreck men

Tv show on sky discovery channel, they do salvage and towing in miami and florida keys, making 500 bucks just to tow a boat back to marina. Pretty much dis regard any safety basics. Worth watching for shock factor.

Yeah, it's $5000 here and $1500 there, a $2000 payday - all for towing! I think I'm going to make sure I fit an extra couple of engines to my boat so I'll never have to be robbed by them or their UK cousins!

It's been on Quest before but it's being re-shown on Discovery: Shipwreck Men : Discovery Channel

I'm not sure if it's online, but think it's on Sky Catch-up.
