 So much for needing a bunch of fancy gear.

This type of rig has worked for me for close to twenty-years (+). I do use an electric motor driven, oil-less compressor with an extra air dryer added. I generally stay 25' or less, but I have bounced down to about 70' to free a fouled anchor.

Yeah I've used them too. But never to 200' in a dirty river. :-)

Did you get a load of their gas tank for the compressor?

You try diving 200' in a dirty flowing river in good gear. Then come back and try to tell me with a straight face that these guys are doing it as stated. Not a chance.

One thing I agree on though. It's not about the gear.


What part of GALE WARNING did you not understand?

No OSHA and/or Jones Act in South Asia. Hey Ghost, this is good gear for their area. I personally have never dived the Mississippi River, but I have been on salvage jobs on the LMR, where divers used 36" steel casing to go from surface to depth and back.

Well all it says is that they "can" go as deep as 200'. Not how long they stay there. And who's to say if that number is accurate or even true. :-)
