Re: Need answer to something I've always Wondered About
Hang on there just a cotton-pickin' minute..
We're not (and I'm most certainly not!) talking about scuba diving
- we're talking about cleaning someone's hull. I don't know many people at all whose boats draw more than around 8ft - and if they do, they can certainly afford to pay a professional diver to do it.
You can embolize coming up from just a few feet. It doesn't matter if you are scuba diving at 100' or cleaning a boat bottom. It's a real danger when breathing compressed air (regardless of the source) and if you don't know what you're doing then you probably shouldn't be doing it.
