Bring a bigger tank!

While I insist on full fills from shops I do not expect them for my HP tanks while on a dive boat. That is why I always bring the next size up for boat dives. My HP 100 generally gives me an hour long dive on a boat fill of 3000psi. Any longer than that and I am just holding up the other divers anyway.

On a multi-day trip, I would probably want a fuller fill on a dive boat since it is a more relaxed schedule and the whole point is maximizing dives.

I use my HP 65 and 80 at the beach.
