    You had me laughing when I read this. My husband has lived in the area of International Falls, MN almost all of his life (Canadian side across the river) ... so your story could still work! He started off diving in the Great Lakes working on natural gas wellheads (when I met him) but spent a couple of years Saturation Tech/Diver/Medic off Newfoundland (Grand Banks, North Dana). Deepest dive in the early 80s - shelved at 735' with a bell bounce to 750'. Worked on the sister ship to the Oceanranger that sank, was on-shore waiting to crew out to the Sedco 706 at the time and later helped with salvage and scuttle. Inland diving the technical term would be "mud diver". Switched to firefighting in 86 with a sideline of mud diving - hydro dams, bridges, water intakes, piers, etc.

    Do you work for the Bath Iron Works...I know that's not CT, but I didn't realize they built Subs in CT. I used to work at Newport News Shipbuilding and turned down a job offer at the GD shipyard in ME. Wish I would have taken the job, wish I would have spent a few years in Maine.
