OK, I'll rephrase my earlier request (feather and plug).
Any suggestions on how to break up (to remove) a chunk of concrete approx
It's quit hard, having cured at the water's edge, semisubmerged.
Sledge hammer didn't make a dent.
What to do??

well son , You just made a Rock or Bolder and you have to treat it as a big rock
you made. Dig a hole and roll it in it or tie a chain around it and drag it out
to the country side and put it up as a land boundery marker or a tribute to
yourself as a life long thing to remine you to not make anymore mistates like it
i just thought about this as you said at the waters edge. If it is a river or
lake it is near , you can just tie it on to a boat and pull it out to deep water
and let go of it.

I did not say pick it up but drag it. You say 3 tons is a too big of a weight to
drag into the water. A New Cadillac is just about 3 tons. you then get a 150
horse power bass boat or even one of the 225 h.p. bass boats and tie on to it.
You can drag the block of concrete or the Cadillac around all day in the lake
till it jams between the tree or log jam. If you have ever seen what these 225
H.P. Bass boats can pull you would not say what you just said.

sand bottom , 20 feet of water, extra long motor shaft to draw motor water for
power, 225 H.P. Evinruide / Johnson with 4 blade power propt. and not speed
propt.. then hook up to front axle and drag forward. You can make it Ski behind
I had a friend that bought 3 flate bed ford 350 trucks old and eat up with rust
and he drug them out in Toledo Bend Lake in Louisiana / Texas and he drug them
around like nothing with his 200 H.P. bass boat. He put them all in one place to
make a White Perch Hole. that 200 H.P. motor will pull more that anyone would
think and he never open the motor up to pull the load for about 1/2 throttle was
all he used. If I would not have seen it myself i would not have believed it
Here's your problem, TURTLE... an old Ford truck or a new caddy is going to
displace a lot more water than a slab of concrete. And the vehicle will be
buoyed by the equilvalent weight of displaced water...Archimedes, I
think...sooo,,,,I reckon you should justy cut your losses here and figure a
bass boat ain't gonna pull a 3 ton slab of rock around a lake bed.
Nuff said on that one.
Don't even think such thoughts...the stuff I've had to pick up and haul
off from the road ditches and fields from such folks... :(
And, of course, the "except" had no place in the other post as however
it's done, there's a fairly sizable amount of stuff.
You could drill some holes in it and put in some M-80's and probbaly
crack it into some smaller more managebly sized pieces. Try cutting it
(even only part way through) and then hit it with the sledgehammer
again. The cuts might weaken it enough to break.
