The moth was never discovered until many years later after his death.

    So is the driver basically wearing scuba gear? No right? Could you have a regulated oxygen feed going through the helmet that wouldn't come out unless the helmet was ripped out (like in a jaw brace maybe)?

    I have some cousins I grew up visiting that run crazy boats around Lake Orion and it seems sketch.
