To increase diver safety, endurance, and performance, and to measure dive work in assembly projects, a self-contained load-handling pontoon was developed. The pontoon is light and small enough for one man to handle, yet big enough to carry a good pay-load. It enables a diver to lift a heavy object, move it from point A to point B in complete safety, and to control the objects up-and-down movement within a matter of inches. Testing results and specifications of the pontoon are discussed recommendations for improving future models are made. This self-contained load-handling device should significantly extend the performance capability and safety of the working diver. Author
