    I bet he never did a Rescue Diver course at Stoney in January. -5c air temp and +3c in the water, with 3mm gloves. I know what I am talking about....
    Oh and I have dived in Icelend in +1c water in dry gloves. I just figured that dry gloves were over the top for a 650m dive

    Panic over folks, I've got to the bottom of this (dreadful pun) but it was just a typo - should have read 650cm dive or was it mm, predictive text is a bugger sometimes

    That would be oxygen rebreather territory.
    He can't take the Woodbine in that case, all us divers
    know oxygen is dangerous when smoking, not a nice
    safe gas like hydrogen.

    I'd bring the O2 down a nad's, I seem remember 4% being an bit explosive, or maybe that was 4% H and then some oxygen, I don't really remember, I was a bit narked when it did it.

    An electrician I know was working in a house where the occupant was on medical oxygen. He smoked by pushing the (cold end) tip of the cigarette through one of the holes in the mask.

    I'm pretty sure Cousteau did a 650m dive with a 67:33 Hydrogen / Oxygen mix in a diving bell he used for decompression over red wine and cigars? The dive was a real blast...

    Boom boom.

    I'll get my coat.
