Re: Need answer to something I've always Wondered About
Instead of a long snorkel or an expensive hookah, attach a scuba tank securely to the dock or boat. Then connect a first stage to a high grade, 20 to 25-foot hose with sufficient PSI rating (my hoses say they're rated to 400 psi) and a second stage to breath. While breathing compressed air at 10-15 feet isn't likely to be dangerous as long as you know how to clear your ears and don't hold your breath when coming to the surface, you'll often be asked to show a scuba certification card for the fills or whenever the tank needs to be inspected.
