"Equipment, Training and Experience. Add to that Attitude and Knowledge for those of you that hold technical certs.
Thats the basic recipe for being safe in the water."

Excellent post, as the Times article last week said that 80 or so deaths are anticipated this year in scuba. That is not acceptable! Cutting that figure down is a realistic objective to forums like this one. Fact is that new divers are certified with lesser skills and knowledge of safety. DM's and instructors are certified to teach with less experience. I believe divers shouldn't accept OW or AOW as adequate training and should be involved with continuing education. Dive within the level of your training and experience, stay in shape, have your equipment in service.

What do you think ??
