    yes, indeed he his.
    two days later with another amazing dive john did set a new milestone in the exploration of the puits de la brême in France.
    unfortunately I had to leave before he went back and couldn't bring back any video shots or pics.

    Wow. That was one scary story. I just can't imagine going through a syphon that strong. He has balls the size of grapefruits.

    I'd love to hear how he planned gas. I did some calcs a few years ago. It's unbelievable how much gas you need in a syphon. If I recall, sixths doesn't work with a flow over 20 fpm and a reasonable swim speed.
