Note(s): Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institution (HBOI) has for the past 15 years been developing and operating two of the most active and productive (Alldredge and Youngbluth, 1965; littler et al., 1966) undersea research vehicles, the 805 m operating depth JOHNSON-SEALINKs (JSL) I and II. These four man submersibles were designed with lock-out capabilities enabling two researchers to exit and re-enter the craft at depth. It was originally envisioned that manipulative tasks, and those functions requiring finesse, would be carried out by these lock-out divers. Engineers at HBOI have, however, developed an inventory of tools systems (Tietze and Clark, 1986) which enable the sub's occupants to perform a wide variety of research from within the safety of its hull, and well beyond the depth limits of safe lock-out diving.
