Mike Godber, diving at Vobster Quay near Trowbridge UK testing a diving helmet and suit made by Submarine Systems Ltd. December 2004. It was more comfortable than I remember a KMB 17 was. Better weight distribution and dry as it was clamped to the suit though still with a neck dam so not a constant volume set up.

Lou Loukoviac and Gary Hunt. Taylor diving & salvage Bahrain, offshore Qatar,EGPC, mid 1980's. Daniel Vale, on the stern of the "Ublureak" - a geophysical survey vessel that foundered in the Beaufort Sea, just 13 mo.'s out of drydock. She was raised over two summers & to my knowledge, never returned to service. The day of my first test dive of the new Gorski. My Trusty Savoie Demand that has served me well since 1978. So far so good with the Gorski, It isn't a pretty as my old Savoie but it sure breathes easy, is very comfortable to work in and solid as a rock....jcROAT.
