When diving on a live aboard and using the small boat to go to/from the dive site, do you use a cover/guard over your dome port?
Practice "Safe Shooting"
Now the questin you SHOULD be asking is: "how many of you dive with your LENS cap on?"

I was once doing a safety stop next to a hang bar. Someone grabbed the bar hard and it hit my subal 105 port and took a chunk out of the glass. Amazed it did not shatter. After that, cover on. I think it was about $270 to replace the glass. With all the exposure of a dome port, without a doubt.
When you hand a camera up, the DM don't all handle it well and people throwing cameras into the dip tank etc..
