    Caves such as the manarde and Tannerie require decompression some way into the cave. In these cases gas logistics are important and using a small rebreather in the habitat may be a good idea.

    We have different habitats which can be pulled and assembled after kilometers (and we have trained that).

    Still in the habitat it would require only around 3-4 stages max including breakgas etc.

    So transport is no big deal at all.
    Personally i wold not like to have a breather there since you need the OC as bailout then anyway

    So transport is not less but more.

    Regards

    Michael,

    we (you & I) use different rebreathers, different techniques and often dive in different types of caves, you are welcome to your opinions, but certain dives I have achieved would not have been possible without the use of a rebreather in the habitat.

    I doubt you have ever considered hanging one of the rebreathers used on the bottom, inside the habitat roof & using it at 12, 9 + 6m. Your equipment is simply not suitable for this. Just because something does not work for you it does not mean that it is not a useful technique for others.

    I would suggest that equipment volume & technique should be tailored to the cave.

    Where did you pitch your habitat "kilometers" into a cave?


    regards,
    John

    Drmike, in order to be able to get stability, I'd think you would need a 30m' barrel base (under the assumption of a 9-12m' deep habitat), which puts it out of my abilities. please correct me if I'm wrong.
    that is why I have been playing around with the Idea of botom conected habitat. (sorry for the 3rd grade artist rendering)

    your plan definitely has the bonus of being available on a dive that missed the wreck.
