10,000 lbs of lift would be roughly 25x 55-gallon drums. Yikes!

Must be a big boat on the bottom... Good luck.

You might try contacting Bruce Higgins and/or talking to the folks over at Underwater Sports in Edmonds. Bruce uses large plastic drums for lifting boulders at the Edmonds Underwater Park. The only way I know to contact Bruce is to show up Saturday or Sunday morning at 9:00am at the underwater park there...probably easier just to call UWS. They might be able to give you some ideas.

I’m seeking about 10,000 pounds of lift capacity in lift bags to rent or purchase for a recovery project. Anyone have any to sell or rent or know a good place to start. Internet has bags from 50 pounds to 100,000 pounds for purchase. Buying used or renting would be preferred.
