  1. A forum to discuss those situations where something horrible could have happened, but we somehow managed to avoid a real accident.
    Please Note: This forum has special rules. This forum is intended to be a "flame free zone" where divers of any skill level may share their incident without fear of being accosted. Please show respect and courtesy at all times. Remember that the inquirer is sharing a potentially embarrassing moment. This is a learning zone and consequently, any off-topic or overly harsh responses will be removed. We encourage people to share their near misses, so that we all may learn from little mistakes that could ultimately be costly.
