Commercial Diving Hall of Fame

Dick Long Inducted into the Commercial Diving Hall of Fame

Dick Long was officially inducted to the Commercial Diving Hall of Fame at the Association of Diving Contractor's Show held in Tampa, Florida, on January 24, 2006. Dick was recognized for his outstanding technical contributions in the field of commercial diving, especially the development of the hot water suit and supply systems, without which modern saturation diving would not be possible. He also developed suits for the military, including the SeaLab program and other operations. Dick is recognized as a person who does not compromise when it comes to the safety of the diver and for his tenacity in pushing the commercial industry forward.
