    I had some apeks regs serviced in the UK recently and the second stage cover was screwed very tight. Apparently this is what apeks advise.

    I don't understand why people take this approach to gas planning. It feels so complicated. Perhaps with manifold tanks it makes sense, but surely not with independent tanks(I did a dive with Lanny...

    It's not fun when you want to turn a dive and your companions aren't around. I think it's best to leave the cave as soon as you reach the edge of your comfort zone or gas limits. Perhaps leaving a...

    In the UK Sea I use a steel twinset. With side mount I've only carried 4 tanks. But it should work with a fifth - and a longer bungee.

    On my sidemout kit, I rig a stage with a short (2-3 inches) bungee around the neck of the cylinder that clips to a chest d-ring. Mid way down the tank I have a much longer bungee that I can pull...

    I have a well-known-brand-mtm-suit with a front entry zip. It leaked after a few dives. Spent ages fiddling with/swapping out dump valves. Turned out to be the zip.

    Sounds like they will need testing before you can fill them here. Might be better off selling and picking up second hand when you get here.

    I think you'll find that dir-style rigging for stages isn't compatible with how you'd want to sidemount them. Obviously depends how you do it, though. But you wouldn't want clips or rigghing on a...

    It's really warm in the water - maybe 28 degrees - but cold-ish on the surface. There used to be a bcd and an empty tank wedged under a rock a short way into the cave - chilling reminder!. I think...

    Years ago I dived in the cueva del agua with Sergi who owned Rivemar dive centre. He's a nice guy. Don't know if he still owns it. Worth visiting Cabo de Palos. Some wrecks and popular scenic dives.

    Station marker, in Mexico, would be a directional arrow that marks a T or a jump at a 'survey station' - a place where the line is tied off and the beginning/end of a line shot in the cave survey

    Worth considering that when a cave is explored, there is often a main vein that becomes the 'mainline'. So for a first visit, it typically makes sense to dive the mainline first.
