>I wondered how long it'd take to get to the scare stories of rebreathers.

My old BSAC DO died while using a rebreather, this is back in the day of question marks over the Buddy Inspiration, an O2 hit can knock you out faster that you can say Ja.....

Yes there are advantages to them but they do come with potentially increased risks and divers using them also put themselves in riskier situations but in the diving community there has always been that certain element who do appear to have a death wish.

I'm an old fart now and my cold water deep diving days collecting brass or Januarys with a suit leak in Dorothea are behind me, just nice 10-20m warm reef diving on air is plenty much fun.

Watch the fish feed, don't become fish food.
