A Better Way to Find Lost Divers?


New investigative feature by Undercurrent magazine provides some answers!

Released on: 5/26/2009

In the May issue of Undercurrent, we carry a very important story by Capt Trevor Jackson of the Mike Ball fleet.  He discovered that drifting divers often travel in directions far different than he and his crew presumed from wind and surface conditions. 

After simulating drifting divers with dummies, he is now much better able to locate a diver who has surfaced too far from the boat to be seen.  Anyone operating a dive vessel should read this story and consider emulating his technique.

This significant safety piece is just another example of how Undercurrent serves the dive industry as no other publication does.  Click here(www.undercurrent.org) to go to our homepage, then click on A Better Way to Find Lost Divers.
