  • Snorkel - Who is still using them?

    Other than perhaps the Chicago Squad's, is anyone still running a snorkel on a regular basis? Just curious.

            The amount of water that has gone out of the gun in the basket of the snorkel in Lawrence could have probably filled up the Pacific Ocean several times over with the amount of work that rig has seen.

                Surprised

                I'm really surprised that there are that many still in service. Thank you very much for the responses.

                          Here is a photo from last month. It's mounted on a Pierce.
