More importantly, we often also need to work under the boat for cleaning, maintenance and clearance jobs, when bad stuff happens. Which it does ...
That rope I'm holding at left caught around our propeller in the Mallaca Straits back in 2006. Not surprisingly it stopped the drive train and the Cummins engine in a flash.
Drifting powerless at night, in a busy sea lane, is not our idea of fun, but we were able to clear the propeller and get underway again in quick time, using the Powerdive system.

Powerdive supply kits for single or double diver use. We bought the Double Deck Snorkel, along with some extra hoses and spare parts when we purchased ours. Now, more than 10 years on, I'm pleased to say that this system has never (ever) failed. It has always worked, first time, every time, with almost no maintenance. Not many systems aboard can match that.
Powerdive are an Australian company based in Western Australia. As you can see here, the Admiral enjoys using it as well.
