"why have the dashboard on your chest in the first place"

Great, now it's a dashboard I better check the owners manual maybe it's got intermittent wipers and cruise control too.

"I glance at my SPG all the time without my hands,
and it's clipped off to my left hip."

I watched the GI video on how he wants you to stage bottles. How exactly do you see through the bottle, xray vision?

"Who has defined this triangle for the SPG you speak of? Backups and alternate air sources I have heard of needing to be in the 'triangle', but SPG?s"

That's right the SPG needs to be the triangle where it can be viewed with no hands. This may not be Doing it Right by George's definition. Because he can predict his air and compute deco on the fly and I don't doubt he can. But, until new divers and students get close to his proficiency they need to closely monitor their psi,depths,ascent rate and deco status. MHK, said last week that computers can be used while learning. Well put the fuel gauge and dashboard where it can be of most help. I'm not worried that divers are slowed down in this race by drag but whether they survive the dive.

"Arno? On a deco stop? With stages?... anyone have a picture."

I thought he could be my buddy for the Matterhorn trip.
