I’m a Trident kickstarter supporter, and I’m hoping to get my new Trident in November. However, that’s winter time here in Norway, so the conditions can be freezing. Can I hack a hole in the ice and dive with the Trident in these conditions? I think my main concern would be when I lift the ROV up out of the cold (but warmer than freezing) water into freezing air. Water in any small cracks or crevices will freeze and expand, with enough force to crack rocks.
So my question is, should I keep the dives to “warmer” days, eg warmer than freezing? Or can I venture out into the freezing cold without worries?
