Sorry, Steve, but I realy don't see the logic in that. Why on earth should wearing gloves automatically make someone want to touch the coral? Personally, I always wear gloves when diving in the Red Sea or tropics. Not because I want to touch the coral, but because I tend to get finger eczema when I have my hands repeatedly immersed over several days. Having listened to the diveguide's usual lecture, I always announce that I SHALL be wearing gloves during the trip, whether they like it or not.

Everywhere else in the world, a red smb DOES mean distress. As usual, it's we Brits that are out of step
