ANNAPOLIS - As Grant Corbin testified to a House of Delegates committee Wednesday, he held up a rusty metal plate about the size of a dining tray.
"If this is the devil, then I'm not scared of the devil," he said.
Corbin, of Deal Island, was one of about 30 watermen who traveled to Annapolis in support of legislation that would allow the use of "devil divers" in oyster dredging.
The diver is a plate that fastens to the dredge and uses water pressure to keep the dredge on the bottom, Corbin said.
