Tim, I agree with your assessment of the situation. I was the diver in question on your boat. I tried to explain the very same things to that DM but he was persistent that the Captain must decide. Every diver takes risks and must assume personal responsibility for his actions. We are taught the dangers of diving during certification and others are learned through experience. I haven't heard of anyone being forced to dive. It's sad that the issue of liabilty even enters into diving. I had a great couple of dives and caught a few lobsters. It was just like all my other dives, just a little darker. Thanks for "letting" me dive.
