My spot on news channel 8 didnt really get watched by alot of gulf divers.. I b****ed and am gonna get paid for lost wages..Its out there gulf divers, go get it. Divers need to implement their own moritorium..No oil well goes online untill divers inspect everything from conductor bays to stubs. and BOPs if were able depending on depth. If its over a grand then let the ROV boys do the rest. It doesnt realy matter, divers are the true inspectors in the gulf. Deep well drilling has got to stop untill man can find a way to put a leash on it so this b******* never happens again. It is my sand box and Im used to 300 ft pops. Im not interested in getting 200 ft and going through a plume no one can see. As it stands now divers need to take control and make sure the oil is really gone. Practical application, is the only way to know. Im just sick and tired of industry labeling us as laboreres. For Gods sakes were pros at what we do. If any of you have supervised rig inspections, cp, vd , flooded member, 0 plus inspections you know how sub-standard most of these rigs are. Divers are more important to the safe function of rigs in the gulf than anyone else. We need to articulate on this. Divers go through a school and are considered proffesionals. The oil rigs and the companies who own them and operate them should understand this. As it stands right now, as a proffesional diver deep water drilling needs to stop until we can make sure its safe. 1000 ft is the limit until we figure out how to go deeper. Everything happens underwater, which is our office and domain. Untill we can verify the safety, then its on hold. Sorta like how BP said were not paying divers. Its time to change the way things are going in our sandbox..
