    In a word - nope.

    Great example. How do you judge a persons abilities by looking at them. We all have seen the perfect human specimen that could not dive. If a dive shop has concerns pull the person aside outline the skills and physical abilities required for the five and politely say I just wantted to make sure you are up for it . If yes the shut up. They have no liability if I have a MI at 90 feet or if I do a rapid ascent and take a DCS hit. They expressed concern and were reassured that I was good to go that is all the responsibility that the dive shop has . The same with the dive buddy and DM. They are not required to save my butt but to only make the best effort within thier training and situation. Everyone needs to take responsibility for themselves and thier own actions

    Budman you can always find an exception, I stated that, but who would use exceptions as their rule? That doesn't seem logical. I tend to dive with people I know or make sure I am prepared to rely on myself. I don't think the question is whether or not a person has skills, I think the issue is if things go wrong are they a liability or more at risk for an accident and the Dive Op gets to decide. The nice thing is there are many dive ops at this point who don't care so finding an operation to dive with should not be an issue. BR

    BR and others that commented thanks for the feedback.

    I think we've had a good discussion no negative comments just different opinions. that's why I love this forum as opposed to others.

    Nothing against the dive op that sent me the form but right now I'm looking at others to see what they offer. Jusy may be a better fit for my state of mind.

    I would think that the Captain of the boat would have the final say weather to let you on their dive boat or not. I do know first hand on the couple of dive boats I have been on that I just tell the crew my needs and they are usually very accommodating to me. As for the note that was sent out, I would take it with a grain of salt.
