    Thanks for the offer! I have a really big SMB that I clip on for boat diving, and I really don’t have any pocket space, so I think I’m good with that my SMB and dive flag for my shallow shore dives. It is a really cool idea though!

    A way to call for help would be nice though... I could be floating out there with a giant raft shaped like a rubber ducky with a “help me” bubble and I don’t think anyone in Florida would pay any attention.

    I'm from Orlando and my home port is Jupiter Florida, but I dive the gulf coast a couple of times a year. I'm waiting for Pat Green's dive shop to be moved to it's new location in Panama City Beach to head up his way and start a harvest of lionfish.

    I tried to dive near Venice last year but the red tide stopped me!

    Johnoly sent me one of the yellow trash bag distress bags that he had made up. It's now in my butt pouch with my DSMB. Seems easy to make if you have a vacuum seal bag. Or even a freezer ziplock. Using a ziplock, it would be easy to make a white one to do a trial run with. Thanks.

    This is a low tech, simple DIY project that happens to be Very Effective to be rescued for just pennies.
    It's like your car's seatbelts. You've probably never had a head on collision in your car, but you still wear your seat belts every drive. Same thing except it's a 25cent trash bag. Cheap effective insurance.

    so it's really just a trash bag? it looks like some factory-made stuff in that packing with a paper slip.
