For those of you that don't know.  Bill passed away Aug 10, 2010 .  While I never had the pleasure of meeting him in person our conversations are sorely missed.  Rest in Peace Bill.

Hi Bill,
Sorry about the really slow reply! I'm working in Ontario Canada as an inshore diver. Good gig out here, left BC for it.
So whats your story? Are you in Canada? Offshore/inshore?

Cheers
Bob

The college that I attended was Holland College in Georgetown, PEI in Canada.The training was great prepared you mostly for offshore work but at the same time, it prepared you for inshore work. The instructors were great one was a sat diver and the other was an inshore diver. The instructors had over 20 years experience each so they were knowledgeable in the training material. The job placement was ok, I got a job with an inshore company out of PEI. Now I work for an Oil company in Saint John, NB Canada doing maitenance on their subsea pipeline and SBM. I still would like to go offshore and see how its all run out there.

Bill you were wondering what I was doing at 325'. I was doing Module 3 of my CCR course for my Megalodon rebreather. But like I alwaystell students " just because you are trained for 300' , doesn't mean every f'ing dive has to be that deep. Its not a lot of fun decompressing for 4 hours for a lousy 15 mins of bottom time.

Mostly SSA, in the Gulf of Mexico for PDNO out of Belle Chasse. Started at the ground and worked my way up in 89 after I left the Corps. I never freelanced, Larry gave me a shot, and I stayed until the work slowed. Then used what I learned when it was needed. I was taught by some of the best in this business, no school can ever replace that education. They were the best, I ever worked with. Went back to school to get this "ADC" Card hoping to work with other companies big or small. Things have slowed up here. So I'm looking to help out where ever Im needed work is work, as long as its in the water

Steve,

For your information, we are still in the process of arranging divers from Dubai, using your equipment as per below quotation. I know that there is not much time left, but for now, I can only say that we accept your below offer, provided that the divers from Dubai will carry out the works. We are pushing them and will let you know immediately when we receive their confirmation.

I was born and raised in Prince George, and when I got on this site I was living and working out of Campbell River. Im back in PG now just finished a welding course at the collage, I figured it would be nice to have something I can fall back on in the slow times but also something that would be useful to me in the water.
I was working inland stuff. Day to day was a pressure washing gig, on mostly fishfarms, butalso barges and such sometimes. And then also worked quite a bit with cariboo divers and a few stints with Hydra. Pretty mcuh whoever needed a guy, was just pretty much hiring myself out. Kept fairly steady between it all cant complain really. I mean I was a new guy and it was slow times. More then I can say for most divers I know.
