I live in Monterey Bay, and I would really like it if MBARI had this guy they are talking about post the link to his worlds record deepest working dive in a JIM suit! Then we can all be proud of this worlds record holder being local, and it would certainly be a feather in MBARIs cap!

THERE ARE NO FEMALE NAVY SEALS - what an idiot claim you make on your own.

i have recently been given a scanned copy of a magazine called oceanear from about 1976
Tony Moore, who made one of the
world-record-breaking dives (1440 feet)
in JIM off Valencia, Spain, last December,
was in Santa Barbara recently with
his partner Rudy Sturgeon and Walt
Thompson to help mobilize the rig
Aleutian Key for removal from Port
Hueneme, California, to Alaska.
Ron Sirianni, who runs the shop in
Oceaneering's West Coast Division,
and who always wears a thinking cap,
put Tony in a car and drove him the six
miles to Goleta for a meeting with your
editor, who was flattered by this social
courtesy. You see, magazine editors
live entirely different lives from deepsea,
world-record-breaking divers, and
we don't get much of a chance to
fraternize with them.
We've never met a finer person than
Tony Moore. He is a modest, unassuming,
courteous, and friendly man.
He is the pineapple of politeness. We
still say that you can always tellhow big
a man is by how small he pretends to be.
Of course we asked him what it was
like at 1440 feet. You want to guess his
answer? That's right. "Dark and lonely."
Thank 9ou, Tony, for a happy
Sunday afternoon. Stay in touch.
this was emailed to me a an old work colleague of my dads,i got the original depth wrong

Not to get in the way of your ill-informed rant or anything, but I can certainly testify to the fact that Sylvia Earle does not hold any sort of depth record for atmospheric diving. The deepest atmospheric dives to date were carried out by WASP operators from Oceaneering, making working dives (not Earle's stunt) in the Gulf of Mexico to 2,100 feet.
