wow just came across this thread
Doc since we are close will have to tell some fun stories
my idea cause my love of the ocean was to do commercial ? lets see dive on boats or rigs with lots of guys around ?
or stay in Maui and work with tourists and have hot chicks on boats
big sweaty construction type rig guys or hotties in bikinis
I can say I have done some stupid stuff being a full time instructor for some 15 years
like going over 200 on compressed air
funny about being narced though ? I have only had it once !
wow lots of good ones and bad ones
lots of girls lost their tops in the water coming off the slide on the boat
those are good ones
bad ones sadly a lot of tourists drown or have near drownings
those are the sad ones
when you pump em back to life and then they want to sue you for embarrassing them !!!!
or the fat guy whos weight belt you could never get to stay on
or the countless times you get puked on !!!!!! thats gnarly
one of the best was my buddy had a girl throw up on him as he was trying to ask what the problem was ! she projectile vomited so hard and sadly his mouth was open as he was talking when she did !!!!!!
and as he said you know when you puke in your own throat and it kinda burns !!!! he said well its worse when that happens to you and its someone elses puke !!!!
or when the guys in Utila used to make the intake of their compressor a huge bong and fill the tanks with dope !!!!!! and go down to sandhole and drink out of bladder bags and get stoned out of their minds !!!
I never did this though !! I am a straight kinda guy but used to go watch em for fun
and it was fun to mess with em under water like I kept seeing stuff or putting things on em etc..
yeah I somehow think going the tourist route was more fun and safer than the commercial route for sure
