then your trim has to be perfect to maintain this attitude in the water. time to do some pool training for peak performance buoyancy.
i dont like the reaching-hand-up procedure of the 5 point ascent either. but for boat diving in florida it is probably not a bad idea. lots of boats there. never know when youre going to bump into one.
by the way, i broke way down, violating my personal macho standards, and spent $2000 on a black Zeagle drysuit today w/ woolies. tri-laminate. 2 gear pockets on the pant legs. front zipper.
the crotch strap on the Zeagle tech B/C should gather-in the excess material from the front chest entry zipper.
dont tell anyone i now own a drysuit. i only plan to use it for long deco stops. [probably a lie. who knows, i might like it all the time.]
i have diverged from the Mike Kane macho wetsuit school. sorry!
