    @Sam Miller III - I don't know if it will improve, but here in New York, they are implementing a mandatory boater course for everyone who operates motorboats by 2025. Right now, a class is required for those born after 1996. I can only hope it makes a better awareness. Sharing a river with our Canadian brethren (where this video was taken), I hope something is done there too.

    As a note, it should be pointed out that while I am a huge fan of the flag, I don't tow it when I go cave diving! :D :D :D If you can encounter a boat, a flag is essential. In Florida, FWC is the agency responsible for Dive Flag Awareness and I have volunteered many an hour to support that effort.
