what about do you have enough air to take another cable down to the anchor as it is hooked up on the wreck?
this actually happened to us, only thing was we were in the Solent and the tide had turned and it was running at 3-4 knots and the anchor line had gone like a piano wire and we had to drag ourselves down the anchor line with a metal cable to hook onto the back end of the anchor to pull it up backwards.
it was hard work and that was the only time i have been scared while diving as we would have gone miles and could have gone down huge sink holes some of which were 30m and a lot more!
when we got back on the boat, the skipper told us he has tried to come in before at 8 knots and the boat has started going backwards where the current was so strong.
During dive he kept giving me the ok when I pointed at his guage. We get to shore he says " I got it down to 100" I then explained my understanding about turn around air, gauge could be a little off etc etc..
But on his very next dive (not with me I might add) He had to walk about 80 yards along the rocks at Karpata because he ran out of air.
