Re: Geordie Humour
two methods of entering the water, both with the aim of not losing your facemask, controlling loose hoses and attachments and safely entering without landing on a colleague. Often divers in a smaller boat, with little room to move, sit on the sides to dress in their diving equipment. When instructed by the skipper, it is then an easy motion to roll backwards, placing a hand over the facemask and wrapping the arms over any loose hoses and attachments. An alternate approach, when there is more room to dress and manoeuvre, is to step off the boat with a large stride, again holding the hand over the mask and arms over the loose diving gear.
