    I passed the coarse. Buoyancy was spot on, my problems I had was the reel and cavern awareness and it was a little humbling. Learn a lot and would recommend the coarse to anyone that want to improve their skills even if they don't advance above Cavern level. This is not a "give me coarse" you really do have to preform to pass.

    All I got to do was the dives for the class in Ginnie and Devils Eye. Had to get home, something about payroll on Friday and restless employees that wanted to get paid on time. They just don't understand how important diving is!!!!

    I have not back mounted since June of last year. Probably the hardest skill I had to learn was clipping the tanks on, now I can lay a tank on the bottom and just swim by and grab it - clip it - reg around the neck - snap a bungee around the valve without even slowing down or coming out of trim. Cavern coarse was dream in sidemount and I think it made the coarse easier. I did the coarse in a UTD Plus and I added a Golem butt plate that I used mostly for hanging reels. It was all fresh water and used 2 AL80 with 2lbs of lead and LavaCore with a 3Mil suit on the top. Water was 72 degrees and never got cold with that LavaCore/3 Mil combo.
