    My 4 year old vision was 3.5k with all the nice to haves I wanted. Gbox, BMCL, BOV, backplate etc. It had been back to AP 12 months prior for a service. I...

    I wouldn't bother with a filter for the UK. There's rarely enough light as it is, so trying to cut some of it out in order to do the colour correction is counter productive.

    As an aside, I think I disagree with Tel's "logic". He's just outlined a worst case scenario where you end up CBL'ing a diver to the surface. Fair enough, anything more than 1m in that case is...

    You're not trying to "pressurise your ears". This has been mentioned numerous times over the last 13 pages.

    On the same phone? No. You can't connect the phone to the hotspot that it's creating itself.

    You could connect the phone and the chromecast to the hotspot created by a third phone.

    I'm a big fan of the Halton. Never done Scapa on it though. If Bob is up there at the time of the year you want to go, then it should be reasonably high up the list

    Short answer: Yes.

    Your volume remains constant. The density of the water you displace changes. Therefore, your bouyant force changes

    2.5% of your fully kitted up mass will do the job.
