If you want to dive, do it in style.:cool:

These pics were taken while fixing pressure probes to the piles under bridge piers in esturies that are being studied as part of a MSc thesis.
The hard hats were to keep from banging our heads on the bottom of the pile cap.:head

this was the freakiest dive in my life. the viz was about 30cm in the torchlight. because we were working under the pilecaps, it was pitch black, and where the torch shone the silt made the water look orangy red. added to this was the thunder of traffic across the bridge above us.

decending down between the piles, i had to keep saying to myself "there are no longer crocs in this river" , "no zambi (bull shark) has made it into the estury" and " there is no troll"

but besides the background, i thought that the pics were a laugh.
dont we look sexy:eek:
