    Just out of curiosity, in many jurisdictions, once money changes hands, this would become a commercial diving operation, subject to all the OSHA-type regulations such as time/depth limits, support divers, surface supplied gas, on-site medical and recompression facilities, or saturation diving systems. I was once told this is one reason expenses are usually paid for by the rescuers in IUCRR-sanctioned operations.

    How much of this would apply at this location?

    It seems to me that everything that can be done in Vortex has already been done.

    No offense intended, but it seems to me the family doesn't share your opinion. This is why it's heartbreaking to hear they are offering to pay divers to continue the recovery (if there is a body) effort. They're not thinking clearly. I ask the diving community to have patience with them while they deal with their loss.
