I'm sorry to hear about the accident Bill. It's crazy how things can go bad... especially if you are diving deep or welding etc. I don't know that much about it but as a certified open water diver I have been exposed to some of the risks. There was a guy in my town that died on a dive trip in Catalina a few years ago. He was married to a friend of mine from high school. Now she is left trying to make ends meet with kids at home. The sad thing is it was due to him not following the rules. He had dropped some weight and really wanted to go down and find it. When he dove there was less than 500 pounds in his tank. He never re-surfaced until his buddy found his body hours later. Of course, his buddy should have never left him there by himself with no air. Just tragic. I hope your worker at least had some life-insurance. It is so difficult for a young family to lose a loved one and then have immediate financial concerns at the same time.

I feel really bad about not being there when it happened and for the services, but more for his family. He was 41 and had a wife and four kids. Can't find the motivation to even start to put my PT 19 together or even finish the Zlin 50. Hope everyone here is well.
Sorry to hear about the dive accident. I am a retired Dive instructor and my wife is a Divemaster. I know it is tough.

Bill I'm so sorry to hear about your worker.
I can understand about your lack of motivation. It takes time to heal.
Well I'm off to the city this morning, momma has a dental appointment.
Have a good day everyone.
