I bring her up because she's an example of where
your balony about diving EAN 35 all day at 100'
is DANGEROUS. Our maritial plans is none of YOUR
business. And lest you start thinking there's
some problem, there isn't.
My air consumption is actually pretty good. I've
done 2 hours and two minutes on a short filled 80.
Admittedly in warm water, very shallow, with a low
activity level, but I did.
The last rebreather dive I can find in my log was
September '03. The breathe has had a problem, and
I haven't been able to locate it. The parts to
fix it arrived last week, and now I'm swapping
them on one at a time to find the problem.
Since September '03, the last 200 or so dives
have been on open circuit. And I have a total of
about 1000 open circuit dives.
Nitrogen is Nitrogen. Doesn't matter if you are
on open circuit or a rebreather.
I have no desire to be a divemaster. My place in
the dive community is that of conspicuous
consumer. ;-) The fact that YOU recommend it is
another point against doing it. Also, the two
DUMBEST things I've seen done in Monterey were
both done by divemasters, divemasters who were
very proud of that little pasteboard.
