I've seen and heard more talk over the past year about
rebreathers--advantages, training needed and the like, but have not yet
seen anyone speak to following:

I know that there are some
vessels out there that refuse to allow folks to wear doubles, but how
many regular dive operators allow rebreather-equipped divers on board
the charters they run?

As a rebreather-equipped/trained diver, have you ever been refused space on a boat due to your equipment?

What would be/was your reaction to this?

The spree / and maybe the fling just started to allow RB Divers on their charters this year. Still no doubles unless it is a tech charter on the spree. Most RB Divers check with the dive operators before heading down to make sure that they can support and allow them.

The Spree will let you dive CCR on any of there dive now, you have to stay in the time line set.

haven't seen anyone try to use one on a dive boat yet.
