My Interview with Water Welders

Indiana Sarah - Sarah Ward, Marine Archaeologist by Michaela Skovranova.

Its been another hectic few weeks – Sydney to Dalian via Beijing, back to Shanghai onto Sydney with a little stop in Seoul on the way back! In the middle of it all, I almost forgot to tell you about a little interview I did with Water Welders.

Water Welders I hear you say. Yup! They are the divers who weld underwater.

Sounds impossible – right?!

Well, it’s not. And, underwater welders are often the toughest of the tough, working in some of the toughest situations at depth with nil visibility.

So, with that in mind, the Water Welders website has been designed for people serious about pursuing a career in the maritime industry.  By providing information and training resources, Water Welders helps divers take their diving deeper. It helps them get set up for a career in underwater welding, and then when people are preparing to pivot, provides information and resources to help them explore another aspect of diving, and that’s where I come in!

The Water Welders team specially select divers working in related fields to interview, so that their followers can see what other divers get up to, and what career options may be available to them. Something I fully support. As the saying goes, you can be what you can’t see!

If you are interested to hear what I had to say, head over to Water Welders now and check out my diving exploits!

The interview is online here.

As usual, a big thanks must go to Michaela Skoveranova for the fantastic photo she of me and to both Matt and the Water Welders team for extending the invitation to chat. I had a great time, I hope you did too!

I would love to hear about your diving exploits – any cool sites you have dived, people you’ve met or places you’ve been. I’m sure the team at Water Welders would love to hear them too!

Please be brave and share your thoughts below. Or, connect with me on Twitter or Instagram.
