    The Bass is a Trimix only wreck now? I must have missed the change over.

    Rick Simon told me that he was out on the Suffolk a few weeks ago and the stern had collapsed and the prop was now in or just above the sand. When the prop went it took the rudder with it.

    I come from the "old" days when I used to play around in the engine room all the way back to the control room hatch on air - I called the hatch to the control room "A Hatch Too Far" as it only opens to 90 degrees and is a very tight squeeze, I only know of one or two who have ever passed through it. Will only go inside now on mix but the I still consider the 140-160 depth a personal choice as to the gas a diver uses.

    Rick was out with Wayne on the Canned Air, so give either one a call to get better information on the collapse. Rick did tell me that when they were out it was flat calm seas with mybee a 2 inch swell.

    Dive the way you like
    if you dive the bass with us it's trimix
    A trimix card indicates one has the training to properly deco with EAN
    thats how we dive ...properly
    no 21 percenters on the line hoggin time or seeing Spongebob in the wreck

    If you want to discuss diving methods from the 70s please open another thread
    if you want to dive with us respond here

    My first mix dive was in 1993 before a mix card was invented and was using NITROX and O2 for deco starting around 1991 or so. - so I do know the ins and outs of mix and deco. But I do not buy into any "right" way of diving, it is up to the diver to know their abilities and the requirements of the dive they plan to make.

    I will give you that its your boat, your rules.

    Better late than never! I'm in New Haven County and look forward to doing lots of diving this year. I would like to learn more about the proposed dive club.
