    To be honest, I have no idea!

    We were blown out in the sound one morning. Very windy, causing problems for the ferry. As soon as the wind dropped, the waves did too. We were staying in the old...

    DIR is totally inappropriate for UK cave diving. You can’t realistically crawl or abseil with a twinset so that rules it out before you’ve even made it to the water.

    There are lots of reasons why modifying the system to put stages on the right isn’t a good idea if you want to take advantage of the standardisation :

    There is no right hip d-ring.

    There's no quick and easy solution to this.

    I've done some setup dives with 2 nitrox stages up front (to use to get in and out) and 2 nitrox stages on the leash (to drop 900m in for another team)....

    I had a DS4 that I was using for suit inflate fail through the OPV. Stupidly, I assumed it was the OPV that was broken/leaking and was about to just plug the first stage before I thought again.

    Or more likely not working in some way. I've seen this twice already in the 50 or so stage dives I've done. Once some mud/rock was under the exhaust valve (we had a spare deco cylinder) and buddy...

    That is the general principle.

    As I understand it in this case, I think they returned to the entrance and dropped the (now empty) stages. From this point it is a standard/'new' 3rds dive.
