Ken I have seen alot of BS on here , but please don't take this personal.
From one who works on those boats that clean the rigs believe me the only why that we would be able to collect game is if we like it chuncky. From surface to about 60' they use a 4" pressure hose to clean the legs of the rig. This pretty much makes it difficult to "collect" whatever game there is.
Our ROVS then do pretty much most of the inspection after that. If it finds an area or weld that needs to be checked thats another matter.
In-take valves..well ok if you say so.
One last word. That diver, we "Divecon (co) Patriot( the boat) found last year wss at the bottom of the rig (Ilene) at about 780'. Aera is an oil company interested in its own business. They do not operate boats, hard hat divers or have any interest in rec. divers.
By the way when the guys get an urge for some of those scallops that are ALL over the legs. We check to see how many license are on board.
