Re: Dry gloves. . .

I would be interested in hearing from people diving dry gloves: -What do you use? -Do you like them? -What if anything would you do differently? -Biggest advantage? -Biggest Disadvantage? Has anyone switched from dry gloves back to wet glove and if so why? I am most interested in individuals practi...

I think Bob summed it up pretty well, but I'd like to add a few things: While momentum, buoyancy and trim are tangible differences when beginning to dive doubles, some of the more sublime differences have to do with the different error scenarios you can get yourself into, along with their symptoms. ...

Just don't do the dive too long, especially if you do it in February.

In 40-50 degree water, exhaustion and unconsciousness can happen after being submerged for 30 minutes, and expected time of survival is one to three hours.

Using a FFM as a safe-guard for ox tox on a "normal" dive sounds like a solution waiting for a problem to pop up. The real problem here is diving at a too high PPO2 to begin with. Back off to 1.2 or 1.0 as max PPO2. There's no point in diving a high PPO2, apart from when you're accelerati...

If you dive at Cove 2 enough you will make a mistake sometime. I have a few times under similar circumstances to those Lamont describes. I bet most people responding to this post have.

It is interesting how people feel different about using argon. Some people say it's a huge difference, others can't tell a difference.

There has been a Norwegian Navy study done, with inconclusive results. IIRC, the study didn't show any significant difference between argon and air as drysuit inflation gas.

Did a second dive on the Phoenix this morning, this time penetrating the cabin to check out the interior of the wreck. As is often the case on these small boats, the doors are pretty narrow, so I had to tilt over 90 degrees to be able to squeeze through the doorway. The double 104s are simply too wi...

Lamont: I have a copy of that bathymetry data, even though I haven't bothered with creating a TIN out of it. Pretty impressive work you've done, Lamont!

Darn it Lamont, you're showing them EXACTLY where the Phoenix is now. <G>

Seriously, there are a few deeper spots (and of course some areas that are shallower), but otherwise much of the lake is actually almost exactly 200 feet deep.
