After swimming over to the ladder, he removed his fins and mask and passed them up to the waiting barge chief. He hauled himself laboriously out of the water, his heavy cylinders causing him momentarily to lose balance, but a heave from above landed him safe and sound on the deck. His dripping shape was quickly surrounded by other members of the team who had been waiting on the dive platform. Jack Howard made his way down from the bridge walkway and smiled at his friend. He still found it amazing that such a bulky figure could be so agile underwater.

This again is like a history lesson that I will be tested on, and the dialogue method of advancing the story is stilted and ridiculous. I felt most of the first half was spent recapping what happened during previous entries in this series and again, the dialogue was stilted and ridiculous. Did I say boring? I meant to.
