Re: beathing apparatus for or bottom maintenaince
We use the Sea Breathe deck snorkel. I think it is the most expensive 12 volt DC hooka rig on the market, but when my life is on the line, I'm not one to go the cheap route.
It has quality fittings and is extremely well made. Ours is around 8 years old and operates like new. We use it frequently to clean the bottom after the antifouling fails to antifoul anymore.
Breathing air underwater is one of the most dangerous things a human being can do. The slightest contamination of that air or a few air or nitrogen bubbles in your blood can do an amazing amount of damage to your body, and if not fatal, it can be a lifelong infirmity.
