1.-Wanted to do saturation diving? YES
2.-Had to do a deco because you forgot to go up? SORTA. Photo dive. Had plenty of air and went slightly over after thinking through my options. Deco obligation cleared on slow ascent. Made extended safety stop.
3.-Had a deco diving on purpose? YES.
4.-Been biten by a fish? YES. Most recently in June on the Oro Verde. Chubs (hate those fish). They had apparently begun associating divers with food. Stupid cruise ship tours, I was told.

6.-Had a free-flowing reg? YES.
7.-Saw someone fight underwater? NO. But I once got hooked by a fisherman and my buddy didn't hear my frantic banging on my tank with my pig sticker. When I managed to cut the line, I came roaring back with the knife in my hand, waving it around like a madman. He THOUGHT there was about to be a fight. I was just trying to make a point.
8.-Tried to catch a fish with your bare hands underwater? DUH.
9.-Felt sick underwater?NO.
10.-Had to use your octo? YES. Multiple occasions.
11.-Lost your reg underwater by laughting? NO. Flooded my mask tho'.

No to all. I haven't gotten sick underwater but on my last trip I got a tickle in my throat and had to cough through the reg several times (always a good idea to hold it into your mouth when doing this). I also punched a perch one time who was bugging me by swimming in my face and then it proceeded to go and bite my son's ear.

1. I'm interested in it, but I don't have any particular desire to do a saturation dive unless it involves an overnight stay in a habitat.
2. No, never.
3. Sure, deco dives are a great way to extend range and bottom time if you know what you're doing.
4. No.
5. No.
6. Yeah, often enough to have learned how to avoid free flows.
7. No.
8. Yes, and if lobsters count, I've been pretty successful.
9. Yes, but only within a few feet of the surface.
10. Several times, but never so that it felt like a big deal.
11. Nope... with a sea-cure mouthpiece, I don't have to keep a firm bite on it to keep it in place.
