I went down to the open house at "Divers Institute of Technology" to meet Ernie in that group and see where he works, and watched on a TV monitor as a diver 15 feet below welded for a demo. Fascinating.

Doing that for six years was like getting to be a pirate and an astronaut all rolled into one. Not everyone gets to do it. It is fascinating, dangerous, dirty, scary, cold, a lot of fun, and at times bone weary work.

Actually that would be good, because when you touch the electrode to the work, it won't depend on the water to conduct.
But water with various things disolved in it, and even moreso salt water with other things dissolved in it too, will conduct better than air will. So too I learned from this thread how they avoided that.
