Suunto settles scary scuba screwup for $50m: 'Faulty' dive computer hardware and software put explorers in peril


Gas calculations

Oddly enough.

I do that in my head constantly throughout the dive. Although I admit I cannot dive in Imperial.

I know my tidal rate is 18l per minute. So 36l at 20m.

I then double it to allow for increased workload.

My normal buddy (SWIMBO- has a much lower rate than me and normally dives a smaller tank.

Our predive planning aleays includes my gas failing amd us bailing out onto her tank. Again allowing for deco and increased consumption.

Always plan plan plan...
