Default The ULTIMATE WAY to attend a RAFT UP! Jumping out of a helicopter!

Glenn "that boy ain't right" Walsh with his dive gear on at the Barnegat Bay Poker Run was in the air following us around for a few hours. (just in case). Fortunately we had a great day and everyone was safe!

At the end of the Barnegat Bay Poker Run, Glenn decided that he wanted to join the raft up at Tices Shoals and there was only ONE WAY to get there!!!!!

So, at the end of the event, Glenn decided to DEPLOY out of the chopper. I was there with my 36 Concept Center Console to retrieve him!

(yes he is a trained and certified rescue diver - do not try this at home!)

See the pictures below:

We moved out toward the ICW. It was 9ft of water where he jumped at about 20-25ft off the water.
