    Did a 200 food dive with some Old Fart OC Techdivers.

    Jesus, 200 Feet with guys on Doubles!!!

    Before I even had time to switch my set point from .7 to 1.3, they were ready to go!

    It was a colossal amount of money (130 US in trimix + the boat) to see the wreck exactly......

    10 minutes.

    I did not even have time to Pee in my wet suite before they were ready to head to the surface. To see these guys spend 9 out the 10 minutes of bottom time checking their gas gauges, I was thinking to myself, I don't remember it being like that.

    Trimix for a 200' OC dive? Weird, but whatever they like to blow money on, I guess.

    They must have had some kind aversion to deco with that short BT...I don't think I ever did anything shorter than 20 minutes on OC, even when it was a 300' dive.

    James, you should have more respect for your elders. Even old dogs can learn new trick every now and then. :)

    Did a 200 food dive with some Old Fart OC Techdivers.

    I was in the same situation couple weeks ago lol
    I was diving Spiegel Grove
    with my OC buds and we were doing two dips.. We split in two groups.. One group on the boat the other under..I was surprised how quickly they ran out of air ! The whole dive time was 22min including safety stop.. I stayed on the wreck and return with second group.
    CC makes it so easy ! 10 min simply not enough to enjoy the wreck especially when it's huge!



    Sent from my MK15 using electronics pod.
