    Hopefully the new "help" will go some way to resolve this. The "responsible" aspect seems the stumbling block over and over again in these discussions. In terms of training the DO should be a back...

    I agree. When we first moved here we looked for a dive club. A large part of the reason we chose this part of the UK was access to the sea and getting back into some diving other than the caves. ...
