Back Diving after a few years

Postby hideous » Sun, 22 Oct 2006 8:33 pm

Well i hope to meet some of you sometime shortly :)

I haven't dived in 2 years since getting married but I have been diving for some years.

My mind works still in psi.. so 250bar is 3000psi


Why did a dive master's eyes bulge when she noticed one of my Din's plugged with a Plug with my mini twin ( Isolated connecting yoke) ? She got all ansy about it.
Always use it that way when not using 2 reg's. What?

Why did she start foaming when i told her only to fill the HP tank( HP DIN) to 3000psi because i wanted to use a LP first stage ? ( yes an adapter is used)

Is there anything wrong with decanting the spare bottle when the primary runs out?
She got worse when i told her i don't open the second cylinder until I get low>> it's how I was taught when i learnt.

Have things changed that much ?
No i dont use a horse collar BC.. the bladder disintegrated years ago.

My semi dry doesnt fit as i grew handles, I need to make a shop visit :)
... my nose has grown bigger... the mask i was only using 3 years ago crushes the bridge of my nose.

I am still using my 26yo fins > rubber that weigh a ton > what are those nice plastically light things like ?

the only 2 parts of your post that i can comment on are: Welcome back to diving :D and the fins - i use split fins and find them nice and comfy and very easy to use, as for the old big rubber things you say about, i couldnt imagine using them!! next time you go diving try your buddy's splits to have a feel of what they are like, dont just go out and buy some without knowing what they are like to use.

i want to be under the sea, i breath my air by the tank !.
so far 80+ dives and trying to get more every week or two.
lets face it the bay is the best dive site until, now, brumby buggers it up! NO to dredging! no matter which person leads the State.
