My GOM pipeline inspection crew 1977, including Paramedic.
All had broke in to the bis in the North Sea breathing mixed gas and spending days in a decompression chamber
Breathing air, live boat, walking pipe in up to 185' the guys were in heaven. Guys were all wildmen, all ex-cons from Pre-Commifornia, some of the best men I have ever had the pleasure working with. Probably few if any, still alive, that deep water shit is tough on ya.
One of the prisons there had a learn a trade program going on and these guys learned Hard Hat Diving.
The XO at my first unit tried to send me to Navy dive school because I was already PADI certified, I politely declined.
