The Human Diver Project: “Counter-Errorism”

“To err is to be human”, as the old axiom goes. When coupled with an intense skill-based activity such as scuba diving, human error can make the difference between safety and injury; in many cases, between life and death. Recognizing human fallibility and how to meet and overcome these demands in the world of scuba is The Human Diver Project: an in-depth program developed by dive safety expert, author, and former British RAF (Royal Air Force) officer Gareth Lock.

Whale of a Tale: Return to the S.S. Northern Pacific

Modest events can cast your life. I took my beginner scuba class in the late ‘60s in Rockville, Maryland with local dive club called the Atlantis Rangers. While waiting for class to start, I overheard some local divers discussing the recent discovery of two New Jersey shipwrecks. One was the S.S. Northern Pacific that sank in fire in 1922, and the other was a U.S. Navy destroyer called the Jacob Jones. The Jacob Jones was torpedoed off Cape May, New Jersey on February 28, 1942. Less than 26 years later, in 1968, two Pennsylvania divers, John Dudas and Bill Scheibel dived off the fishing party boat “Big Jim” discovering both wrecks in one day. I made a mental note that I wanted to someday also explore those wrecks. I would earn that opportunity a few years later.
