"Hey, Guys, Can I Come In?"

For your viewing pleasure -- a neat picture from NavSource of what appears to be a ship's diver on a 637 checking the aft escape hatch while the ship takes a wave over the deck:

IMHO, ship's divers don't get near enough extra pay for what they do...

That is a great pic! I had to go to Navsource to view it better and see that he did indeed have a safety harness on, but does not appear to have a life jacket. I know he is a diver and he can swim, but if the harness lets go,it's down into the prop wash for him.
