    So how was school today? Better than working all day like I did hopefully.
    If it doesn't fit, force it. If it breaks it needed to be replaced anyway.

    we sort of feel like this one was not good
    really did not learn much, and the guy said he was not sure why we took it.
    guess our trim and bouyancy was not that bad afterall
    first lake dive.... not a fan. visibility like 5 feet

    Sorry about the disappointing class.

    Some folks are able to figure out good buoyancy without a class, that may be your case Pyrate. I know a lot of my buoyancy and trim just came from tweaking it on dives and learning from my mistakes. That or it could be that particular instructor.... Which could be real disappointing.

    I once saved a man in Wichita just to watch him dive...(inventor)

    I took mine with the Regional Director of PADI for the South Pacific and Orient as the instructor. There were nothing but instructors in the class. Everyone thought it was the best class they had ever taken. I thought so too. I particullarly liked the descending and swimming through the square PVC contraptions set up on the bottom.

    Jim the RD told one of the instructors he shouldn't be wearing so much weight and this guy says he has too. He can't get down with out it. Jim took a weight belt and roped this guys legs together and he hit the sandy bottom at 30 feet like a freight train. Jim motioned for the guy to take off enough weight to get neutral and return to the surface. Best damn buoyancy demo I have ever seen. I got down to between 4lbs and zero depending on what I was lugging around.
