but i have a question for you:
you say that tech divers dive w/a team concept (and
from what i learned on this board from another
poster, a dive team consists of 3 divers).
now, you say that if rec divers dove the tech
team concept, rec divers would dive more safely.
ok, soooo does that now mean that i have to scrounge
up TWO!! other divers every single time i want to dive??
beach, shore, or boat??????
you know, for some people, it's hard just to find ONE
what about when i go on vacation? will i have to find
2 stranger buddies to hook up with...?...
don't get me wrong, i do understand your point when
it comes to the bottom line safety aspect of this
issue, but realistically, how does one completely apply tech
'rules' to rec situations...?...i don't see how
unless someone wants to go out and directly and officially
change the industry standards and the current
paradigm of rec diving...
just trying to understand what has been written.
((btw, if it's still not clear, i do agree that i
should buddy dive for myself, but i just don't know
about applying strict tech etiquette to rec diving.))
