I can see how most of these things if not all would be important in cave diving not sure about in lesson 4 with the helmet being bad?, and not sure about that slate being bad? but everything else on his gear is pretty awful in the lesson

in lesson 6 and 7 im not sure about the big difference in the stage bottles or w/e they might be

any cave divers want to take it and explain 4, 6, and 7 to me?

The first stage bottle is all metal to metal connections and can't be cut free. The second is fine.

There are different interpretations of it. The most common is a recreational diver who uses substandard gear, does use proper gas management, has poor buoyancy control, and is generally unsafe in the water. That last one can pretty much include everyone depending on who is determining safety. As someone who does occasional solo dives, I can be called a stroke. :D

Ok, so Rox doesn't keep hounding me about posting my score:smiley29:, it's a 63 or 65. I don't remember which. Some of my guesses must have been right to get that high. I'm a died in the wool MOF diver.

93% DIR.

It's hard to tell if some of the items aren't DIR on that cave diver without hovering your mouse over them to reveal the description, e.g. the high volume mask and the reg necklace that's too long. And what's with the "dork attitude" check box? Insulting people isn't DIR, it's just being mean.

The last two questions are cogent though. Diving in environments without the necessary training can get you killed.

Isn't it a DIR rule to not dive with non-DIR divers?

I got a 73%, so I guess I should only dive with people who did better than me on the test.:smiley36:
