Actually, remoras have a suction of around 30 lbs. per square inch. I really didn’t want the sensation of the one attacking me. Imagine the bruise! And I’d have a really hard time explaining it my husband.
Yes, a remora did attack me for about 15 minutes. It was hand-to-fin combat! My dive buddy was no help except that he nearly choked himself to death laughing so daddgum hard.
The (seems to be .. I didn't measure it) 16" pipe, approx 20 ft joints are set in place by a suction crane (I at first thought it was electro mag .. ) and the guy said it was a 30 lb "suction"
THAT should put some perspective on .. 30 lb.
