Anti Exposure

I just started dredging in October (reference previous first time dredger posts). I got to thinking I might want to see more of what's going on under water and that chest waders in shallow water might eventually get restrictive. I remebered I had my old Air Force anti-exposure suit in the basement crawl space. We only wear these in the Air Force in ejection seat aircraft if you are >25 miles from land over water less than 60 degrees (which is usually only if your are "crossing the pond".) It was condemned and replaced a number of years ago for being too old (by Air Force standards I guess). My life support techs asked if I wanted it as they were going to throw it away. I said sure, thining it might come in handy if I bought an ocean going boat someday. So, tonight I tested it out in the hot tub to see if it was still watertight. It was, so I think I might have to get a hood and mask to go under water next season. My wife and kids think I've gone loony.

P.S., There was an Alaskan dredger named Goldak who long- armed with the half-bubble - shaped window from a Chinook held in front of him to see better underwater... several other designs out there to make a "glass bottomed boat" type of device to aid long-armers in seeing what they are doing. You want one that doesnt take any hands of course...

Re: Anti Exposure

Great Deal on a dry suit there, carry lots of patch material with you while dredging with a dry suit. You may want to consider taking a dive class that will teach you how to use a dry suit while diving. Burping the suit to get all the air out is important or youll be carrying lots of weight to submerge yourself, good luck, Dan
