    First Dive: 50ft at 40 minutes, surface interval of 1 hour, second dive of 40 ft at 60 minutes, surface interval of 1:45, and a 3rd dive at 50 feet for 30 minutes?

    Your 2nd dive end group is "S" 1:30 later your "C". (a C diver is 1:28 - 1:49) RNT for a C diver is 17 minutes at 50'. Your 30 min dive to 50' would have a total bottom time of 47 minutes. (RNT of 17 pluse ABT of 30 = 47 minutes) at 50' is an "O" diver.

    The trick question would be a 3rd dive to 90' for 20 minutes...7 minutes RNT with Adjusted NDL of 18 minutes so 20 minutes planned would put you into deco - deco is bad, mmmmkay? Never mind that deeper dives should be done first.

    I accidentally looked at the area containing 45 minutes, instead of an hour and 45 minutes, so I got "I" instead of "C" after SI

    It's not hard after the light bulb clicks. Get the tutor and practice to your hearts content.

    The manual doesn't mention anything about the minimum SI between specific dives or how to find it, atleast not the section to which this sheet pertains. Also, there is no "figure 1 on page 250" regarding the compass, so what would the part that shows reciprocal course be called?

    Usually the rule is that a SI less than 10 minutes is considered part of the same dive for tables so 10 minutes is usually considered the minimum SI. As far a reciprocal course, it's 180 degrees off your current course. Have no idea about fig 1.

    I knew about how to find the reciprocal course, just not the figure in question. I shot up an email to the dive shop. Thanks

    Navy. You should be an instructor.
    No one has ever retold valiant stories of logic - for all good stories are driven by emotion and the spirit.
