Ready to Drop Overboard

Dressed for the mission, the men climb from the pickup boat into the rubber raft towed alongside, ready to drop overboard at the signal. They are dropped off about every fifty feet along a straight line a few hundred feet from shore. They will return to this line later to be picked up by the same boat. As fast as the two men in the rubber raft drop off, their places will be taken by the next pair to be "delivered." The men drop off on signal when they are in the right position. These men are dressed for cold-weather work with complete rubber suits, gloves, and, of course, the face mask and flippers.
