MOB case historys thread

Having just finished read that informative thread I went to my "other" favorite fourm site "Scubaboard" and found this thread I thought I would share it with you all.
As a retired Scuba Instructor I spent many days with my eyes peeled doing unintended MOB drills "divers that didn't listen to the breifing".

Check it out...

Interesting thread - especilly the comments about searchers knowing what gear you have / what to look for.

Also a good point about the Navy prioritising folk based on what the survival & finding chances are.

I even re-read my original MOB thread! cheers - still scarey how simple it can be................
