Book Description
In Deep Water is the story of David Dobbin. David Dobbin experienced life both on and beneath the waves. At a time when most Newfoundlanders made a living as sailors and fishermen, Dobbin gambled everything and became a salvage diver.

The gamble paid off.

This courageous pioneer in the emerging field of underwater treasure hunting collected gold, silver, money and jewellery from more than 50 shipwrecks over 14 exciting years. He even encountered a few etheral bodies. Dobbin the Diver's skill and renown was heralded throughout the Atlantic Coast of Canada and landed him a place in the Encyclopedia of Newfoundland and Labrador.

About the Author
Felix Perry is the great, great grandson of David Dobbin. In keeping with the family's tradition, he spent many years working on the Canadian Coast Guard's icebreakers and retired from the Department of National Defence Hydrographic Services Office after 25 years of service. In recent years, Felix has taken up sailing, continuing to demonstrate his love of the sea. He lives in Nova Scotia.
