Plus on top of that all that heavy clothing and boots makes treading water a difficult task until some one can get a line to you to fish you out.

    No that tool belt is not a quick release belt. It looks something like this one, with a thick pad.

    That there is an endangered species

    Not because its stupid or dangerous but because some insurance guy sitting behind a desk or college trained safety rep is going to do all he can to make that an "un-safe work practice"

    You can only make things safer to some extent. Even with all the money in the world, there are tasks which are and will always be a bit more risky than others. Take working on live high voltage lines... THAT's interesting....

    Great pictures everyone!

    Yeah and in the process come up with an even risker way of doing some thing. I've seen that happen once or twice when some one who really doesn't know what they're doing gets put in charge.
