    Risky business: Only the best need apply - By Melissa Campbell, Alaska Journal of Commerce
    They are members of the Piledrivers, Bridge, Dock Builders and Divers Local 2520, a trade union affiliated with the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America.

    Stuart calls his work as a construction diver just a glamorized laborer. But the work is much more than that. They build underwater pipelines and offshore oil and gas platforms. They do inspections and they salvage wreckage.

    'Here, you got to learn all this. No one with just one specialty is going down into the Inlet,' Stuart added.

    It has the potential to be one of the more dangerous jobs in the construction field. Because of that, it's also one of the more safety-conscious. American Marine Corp. has never reported a death in Alaska.
