•   Best of Show for me this year at Underwater Intervention is Dark Water Visions, The Hammer Head. I was walking around between meetings just looking at what the different booths had to offer. I've been around long enough that I don't get excited by most new innovations. The instant I put the Hammer Head on my thought was: “I would love to burn in black water with this!” After that first thought a whole list of times I was diving or supervising I would have loved to have it came to mind. I started running around like a diver just out of school grabbing guys like Donald Dryden, Les Gorski and Sid Preskitt: “You gotta see this!

    Objective: Create an accepted Underwater Oxy-Arc Burning Certification

    Why: Because there is none and it is a misused tool. All we have today is suggested practices that have no standing under law.

    It's not on anyone else when one of us dies but us. It doesn't cost the company that cut corners on the their job plan, their life. It doesn't cost the company you're working for, that  made the cheapest bid, to get the poorly planed job, their life. It is the guy doing the job and remember you took the job.
