The Coast Guard wasn't circling the site in helicopters like buzzards. Captain Tim did several runs down the bank to find a high spot that was "recreational". The Sea Divers are an advanced group of recreational divers. The only problem with the dive that I saw was the huge jam up on the anchor line - about 20 people who had to do very slow safe ascents all in the same place, at about at the same time. There was some current near the surface so at a point you had to hang on to the anchor line in some fashion. Nobody flew off and wound up in Mexico.
To do the dive you needed to be comfortable in the water and comfortable with your diving skills. You needed good basic well maintained equipment that was unlikely to mafunction (Ross and I did a practice dive two weeks before to get the bugs out in our case). The ability to not loose the location of the anchor line to make a safe ascent. The ability to be a safe advanced recreational diver. There was no drama club.
