    Preferably 1 stage
    No changes to the basic layout of my rig
    Bailout to be similar density to dil, and similar narcotic properties

    I may have to amend some of those criteria but the responses have given me ideas to consider.
    Sorry if Iím missing something but who are you diving with? You need to be able to bail off a RB on to your own gas supply but gas is a team resource and deco a team exercise.

    Whatís a helium penalty?

    Or just carry your own gas and dive with people who have their own gas. It's the Sound of Mull. I'm probably just going to dive a single 12 next w/e and still be knocking the arse out of every dive with it.

    Keep it simple. A 7 of air is more than enough. Any deco is going to be minimal. Start strapping on all sorts of shite and carrying barrels of gas unnecessarily and you end up so stressed out fannying around on the Shuna that an incident is more likely to happen. You can damn near just stand up on most wrecks there, I wouldn't go mad pretending it's an expedition to the Titanic.

    penalty
    About 86 mins with his one bail out, no o2 , going with his 6m END ,
    air dill and a 32% bail out runs at about 22min

    i call that a penalty , tho you could just as easyley say it down to inappropriate gas choice
    either way i think it was worth pointing that out to the op .

    rather than just state the obvious,

    ps
    if your in to deep stops and 1mpm from 6m your looking at 70mins more deco,
    i dont spend that much time at 6m on a 90m dive, the right gas choice helps

    Thanks for all the contributions and advice on this one, just to close the loop (see what I did there), I elected to use air dil and air bailout, and despite my preconceptions it neither meant it felt like I was sucking treacle through a straw or was off my tits on nitrogen..........who knew.
