I guess one never really knows if they help until help is needed...or can they count as in "Can they make sure all divers have returned to the boat?" In Ray's case they sure didn't help! I myself am a bit mystified that some DM's are so inexperianced, yet hold such an advanced rating. I think PADI needs to change the rules to make sure a DM has at least 200 dives under their weight belt before they can get a rating where they are responsable for divers...plus a simple counting test.
