TheRedCreeper : how long does this take....

LemmingRush : May I ask, what is your job title? This is the type of thing I'd consider doing simply to overcome the fear element. Dams and boats are horror movie material IMO

0rang3z : No clue how I ended up here watching this...but I watched the whole damn video and i thoroughly enjoyed every second of it. What a cool job to have! In sure it has its perks and drawbacks but damn, not many people can say they work underwater lmao

CtrlAltPhreak : This is both fascinating and terrifying, lol. When I was about 5, maybe 6 years old, we lived on a navy base. One day, my dad took me down on the dock next to some huge navy ship and at one point, I fell in the water between the ship and the dock. I remember sinking, because i didn't know how to swim. i was looking up the side of that big-ass ship and i don't remember much after that. Since then, I've had a major fear of ships and water. I watch videos like this to try to face it. Maybe I'll go diving one day with my boss, who happens to be a diving instructor. I'll probably start out doing it in a pool or small pond. The ocean is pure nightmare fuel for me.

Jake Fejer : Barnikle smoke, don’t breathe this.

Remington Bradley : How much extra friction would a thin film even create. It's probably a good paying job for the guy which is good, but what's the point

IzZy EpiC : Can't play on your phone with this job.

Ewee Entertainment : That is a massive propeller. how horrifying is that to be up close to it UNDERWATER

Rads : Hello mat I am wanting to do this for a job. What's the technical name for this job and what are the required qualifications?

SMaze17 : Had to take a Xanax just to watch this.

Jeremy H. : Why wasn't this an option with my high school guidance counselor?

Ron Wilson : *Fortunately, done with propeller at rest. Much easier.*

Ron Finley : Gives new meaning to wet sanding...

Joseph Platania : Rule number one. The keys to the boat stay with the diver.

Kandela Brown : He took forever to get started.

Mats Bengtsson : Hello everyone! Thanks for all the comments. This video is old and I haven't uploaded that much since then. I have plenty of material to share but my skills in GoPro studios are *very* limited and I am waiting for my new computer. Also, my Internet gives about 5/2 Mb/s. So if I started to upload a new video now you would be able to watch it late 2019. Fiber is on it's way though. I am not asking for subscribers, but if you want to you are more than welcome to subscribe. I do this only to share what I do for a living. I am not trying to teach how my job is done. It is for entertainment purposes only. I have video of me inspecting a turning propeller, which I will upload asap. Stay tuned. Once again, thanks for all the nice (and not so nice) comment. It is very fun to read!

Lee Nix : Freaky but so cool at the same time. Thanks!

Mosquito : Did you use dust mask and safety glasses ?

Name not found : Mnn, yeah, that’s gonna be a no from me dawg.

Tomb Raver : Me: *Plays the Jaws theme on the divers com. Gets fired.* Me: "Worth it."

Alex : POlishing beginns here: 3:33

Pandacat 666 : WELCOME TO MY VERY PERSONAL NIGHTMARE! haha now try imagine that propeller would move just 1mm. i would change that water from green to brown in a nanosecond

Rhayr Harry : Equal rights. We need more women doing this sort of job. Risky but well paid.

ttiization : When it's Friday and you just want to go home 10:36

Amaury Phalempin : Don't forget to lubricate between your pad and the material you're polishing!

Flivver : I like the knife on the umbelical

Phil Spaces : first things first: now i know what my phobia is called. so thank you i have no idea why i watched this, i was feeling uncomfortable seeing the side of the tug from the water, and i got really heavy chested and couldn't breathe properly when you could faintly see the screw. but like when i dove, the anxiety calmed a bit once you were in the zone and working. i did my diving checkout to try and over come this fear, and ended up diving a wreck. honestly when i was down there and became comfortable with my air supply, it was not too bad. in the end i gave up, and remain in fear of man made objects under water. here's to hoping that nobody fires up that GIANT screw

boogoo 816 : Put a cup of sea water in front of me, nope.

Adam Ross : I wonder how much of a difference in drag this polishing makes.

robbiehobbs2009 : Looks like the prop went out to a shop to be re-conditioned. Not that thats possible. Thats why you have a job. Hope it pays well. That is a first class service your providing there. I bet theres a noticeable increase in fuel efficiency

Peffy Pluis : I am really amazed that something that seems so insignificant can save so much fuel. Nice video

Miles Fallon : who here watching this is baked af

swotrucker : NOPE!

taylor mcdonell : Why does it seem to have a dual prop?

BlueSkies : Omg that is terrifying....I feel claustrophobic and anxious :(

Ben Kelly : Even swimming along in that murky water had me tense 😂 lovely job though, you are obviously very skilled at your craft

J : I always wanted to get my diving certification but I missing my chance with me moving away from the coast in a couple months

dima starostin : What polishing disc you use?

schaapje666 : man that is one humongous prop

Erik _ : i wish theyd turn the propeller on while hes down there

WillyWanker : Just wondering, do you piss in your pants when you want to or do you go back to the surface?

Martin : Is the some sort of double propeller?

schlaznger : Your using a pneumatic polisher I can see but what abrasive are you using?

jamie : this terrifies me, big *props* to you

chum drum : Fräckt! Skulle vara kul att testa :D

YouTube channel : I felt he was gonna hear voices from the radio telling him something is on the radar and he needs to leave, he would then drop his tool and you would see it sink into the depths, and as it disappears out of site, the face of a Megalodon would appear slowly coming towards him.

Christopher Hunt : What is the likelihood of being attacked by a shark?

Micah Alman : I understand and appreciate the need for polishing/repairing/maintaining propellers. However, can you imagine the effect this kind of stuff is having on the local habitat? You really couldn't just pop the bitch off and do it in a controlled environment? This is the lazy, inconsiderate fix. I appreciate what you do and I think it's awesome, just not for the fishies and turtles.

Europa H2O Alien : Hope you're wearing eye protection from sparks and such. . . .

Taydrum : suddenly, the propeller starts to rotate..
