    Impressing! Congrats on both 101m and meeting Theo. May I ask what your mission was at 101?

    It was a dive during the saturation diving course so nothing exciting I'm afraid,nice viz in the Mediterranean though!

    I was chatting to John Bennett the then open circuit record holder (308m) about advanced trimix training a few years back when he suddenly stopped responding to emails. It was some time later I read he'd wandered off into the blue on a 42m dive and was never seen again... all of a sudden my deep dives seemed deep enough...

    Did not know of the site. But spent several hours last night reading it all.

    Just got my open water cert last fall, so certainly a novice. But it is making me branch into diving watches (vintage, so not really functional pieces).

    As a LONG retired sat-rat I wish you all the best in your chosen field of work.
    Remember there are 3 kinds of commercial divers........
    Those who have been bent
    Those who will get bent
    Those who lie about it. :)
