I’d rather have it posted in a real dive format than a slideshow during class. Good reminders and allows visualization of the dive/problem which would reduce stress should I/we ever find ourselves in this situation when it isn't a test. It doesn’t encourage me at all to not turn a dive or to push through a problem but does give confidence in the training and drills I do have.


    Perhaps if I had presented it more formally it wouldn't have got such a reaction from Dave.

    I try to write entertaining trip reports and therefore the whole thing could read as flippant and irresponsible

    Dave's criticism offers a balance and also forced more detailed explanation. Ultimately we will disagree on whether or not such testing is worth the risk. It likely we will disagree on the evaluation of the level of risk I was exposed to as well. That said he has raised good issues even if his second post was a little derogatory.

    Daves problem is he's only ever dived a KISS. In all the time I owned a KISS I suffered one single flood due to a cut in the mouthpiece. Appart from that it was faultless.

    We need to get him on to an Inspo so he can suffer a few failures
