  7. "Fisk Marine & Colonial Life Underwriting Department has done what others will not do and that is to provide much needed individual coverages for commercial divers via the Divers Association". These benefits include short-term disability, on and off the job accident policy, life insurance, and a cancer program." I know we are not used to dealing with our own Insurance but our business, Commercial Diving as we have known it, is changing. We need to change with it. I have known Wil Sigl for several years and he does know our business and how to help us through the morass of acquiring our own insurance. Contact Wil Sigl wsigl@fiskusa.com Visit www.DisabilityCanHappen.org to learn more about the risk of disability and the benefits of having disability insurance. Visit www.disabilitycounter.org to view the number of working-age Americans who experienced a disabling injury or illness. Visit www.lifehappens.org to learn more about the benefits of having life insurance. Fisk Marine Int. is working with other providers to make this available outside North America stay tuned. https://fiskusa.com/blog/
  8. Prior to his death, our Board Member John Joly recognized that for working dive personnel the business was changing. With that in mind, he worked closely with Johnny Fisk & Wil Sig of Fisk Marine Insurance so dive personnel can get personal insurances independent of employers.

  9. Complete and up for sale! Anyone that is taking the Ocean Technologies Oxy-Arc Underwater Burning Course Rev.1 does not need to buy the manual. That and much more will be provided digitally. If you are not and buy the manual I will answers questions at the e-mail address in the manual. The See inside feature Amazone offers is now up and functioning See it here;
  10. All Videos are here
  11. I will be receiving the Printed Copies for Review on the 17th or 18th this month. Most divers will never have the chance to be taught to burn properly, they will learn in the field as most of us have. Hopeful the way I've put this manual together, they can buy it and learn how not to kill themselves, even when surrounded by a team that knows less than they do. The smart ones will note that my e-mail address is in this course, the smart ones will ask what they don't understand. The attached pictures are ones I created to help make the point about: Why the Drag method: IF YOU'RE IN FRONT OF THE CUT WHEN AN EXPLOSION HAPPENS; Oxy-Arc Burning can be done safely!

  13. I see everything but diver Skill training as always it is on the job!
  14. Everyone I showed immediately saw the value. The times (no vis.) you have had to argue with your customer because it is not like what the job plan or the As Built Prints say. The times (No Vis.) your fingers are telling you one thing and your head another. The times (no vis) you have a tie-in assembly and every valve has to be in the right position. You get the point! They are about 6 to 8 mouths being ready for anything but Scuba as their major market is Search & Rescue. Mainly done in scuba by Police and Fire Departments across the nation. Any Commercial Diving Company that works in Black Water and does not have this capability when offered to us: It's my guess, you snooze you lose, your competitor will. They way the Hammer Head is set up right now, just the diver sees and it's not recorded. They will be offering topside viewing and recording through the divers umbilical in the near future. I believe that every Diver Supervisor and Inspection Coordinator will want this on their job. Even divers will be happy to ware it when it applies. They have used it for topside Welding & Burning and it works but so far they have not tested it in black water. They will be doing that soon.
