The Last Dive was a great book. The main issues included choosing the right gas mix for the depth and time requirement of the mission & developing contingency plans based on foreseeable problems. I didnt read the whole book, but I read a summary of it in one of the tek magazines.
Big Jeff, I am only advocating being careful at whatever you do underwater, and doing it in small increments. I read your objections as a message not to try certain things at all.
For example, if a diver plans to dive to 300 feet to recover a logbook out of a submarine, definitely build up to a trimix class and take the class. The class will have certain prerequisites. Take a look yourself and see. THe prerequisites are there.
"Jeff says" dont try this at home at all. "Karl says" IF you are going to try this, do it slow and build up to it slowly.
