The Main Parts of the Diver’s Anatomy

A Dashing Scar

Never a slave to fashion! Of course, Navy Divers have scars, they can be as cool as tattoos and they offset how handsome you are!

Deep-Sea Mustache

According to Navy Grooming Standards Mustaches are authorized but shall be kept neatly and closely trimmed. No portion of the mustache shall extend below the lip line of the upper lip. It shall not go beyond a horizontal line extending across the corners of the mouth and no more than 1/4 inch beyond a vertical line drawn from the corner of the mouth.

Cast Iron Skeletal System

It just makes sense. After enough deep saturation dives, you’ll see the practicality of cast iron! A cast iron skeleton that is properly seasoned provides a protective layer that provides a barrier from moisture and oxygen that would otherwise result in rust, duh!

Saltwater Circulatory System

Another practical adaptation is to just start using salt water as your exclusive internal juice. You get plenty of saltwater in every other part of the body, right?

Rebreathing Respiratory System

Or lungs. (That’s what normal people call them.)

Oak Plank Ribcage

Why not? Go with something that’s sturdy, pliable, and has served men of the oceans for years! Just makes sense.

Pulley Strength System

Check out these guns! Really, check them out, that’s made from organic hemp made back during the war effort back home!

Knotted Stomach

It’s like a six-pack, but better, because it’s knotted.

Submersible Depth Gauge

When minutes really matter! No fashion watches here. We’re talking about one of the serious timepieces.
