I think the articles are very thouht provoking. Do I need a buudy?
I think DAN can help with the reports of multi deaths in buddy teams. A diver gets in to trouble and his buddy comes to his aid and then both die. WHY?
In class we were told that buddy diving is a rule. But in the really world of diving is it a rule. Being put in a place to make that a option I would opt not to have a buddy. But for that reason I would also say that if a buddy is what you want then by all means use the buddy system.
Lawyers are have a real good time with this buddy thing and as time goes on I think you will see more and more boats using a solo dive wavier.
Anyway just thinking out load.
