That does not make deep diving safe. Being "qualified" does not make that dive safe. You are
organizing and promoting a deep dive to one of California's historically most dangerous spots.
That it is for the chamber makes it no safer.
By the way, have you ever dove the Matterhorn before? I guessed that you have, but I did want
to be clear on that.

>HAs this board now gotten reduced to the fact that
>sharing information about dive sites is subject to partisan attacks????
No. No one has ever attacked you for promoting deep dives and that is a very deep site,
but you have attacked others for "promoting" solo diving. I think you have attacked
any non-DIR diving methodologies as unsafe ("just waiting for it to happen"). If it's
good for the goose, it's good for the gander. Really, I don't remember anyone attacking
any diving practices... except for you attacking solo... or uh.. independent.

>You guys are really grasping at straws...
Is that a deep dive or not? I consider that to be a too dangerous a dive for me to do
at present. Do you think deep diving isn't inherently dangerous? If not, why all the
gear and procedures?
That is a deep, very dangerous dive.
Enjoy, seahunt
