Matching that story the late California abalone diver Ed Deneuville "Nasty Ed" got so pissed once because they wouldn't let him in a bar to drink with the others that he got a D-6 dozer wrapped chain completely around the outside of a pub hooked it up to the dozer and proceeded to pull the place down to the ground-wow!. They said he was a real gentleman when he wasn't drinking.
Some years later I bought his old abalone boat the "Otter" and years later people around the various harbors would come up to me and boy the stories they would tell me about Ed and his diving adventures on the old " Otter".
Don't mind Flynn his sense of humor is warped...personally I think he's spent too much bottom time on mixed gas. Anyway, welcome to cdiver and good luck with school. ~ Diva
P.S.- Flynn, Ace , Marty Morris, Bill Gardner, and Mike Woods have all been around since Smeaton invented the air pump. So they're the go to guys for helpful information on diving. If it were me, I'd send them all friend invites.
