    Let's avoid any blamestorming here. Unless, I've missed something entirely, we don't know what the last dive actually involved.

    i believe (and it was 1984 I did my marine VHF course) it should be "pan pan, pan pan, pan pan, all stations, all stations, all stations, this is Motor vessel scuba diver, Motor vessel scuba diver, Motor vessel scuba diver. Vessel is disabled and not under power, request assistance for a tow"

    Don't care. Wrong thread for blaming. Analyzing, guessing, supposing etc. No blaming.

    Ok. Like I said I have no training in CCR. I thought Shaw worked too hard. I know he was much much deeper. CCR is very complicated and technical compared to open circuit scuba and the details are hard to fully understand.

    It seems unusual that something would slip by an instructor. CCR divers are the most detail oriented divers I know of.
    How is the second diver doing? Any info about what happened to him?

    From what has been written in this thread, I'm not sure if the day was supposed to be 3 dives, or whether this 3rd and last dive was an extra (extemporary) dive by 2 (or were there 3?) divers who went down to free the boat's anchor.

    If someone knows for sure, please feel free to clarify.

    I am on my phone and have lost track, but was the second diver actually instructing/supervising him on these dives or simply acting as a buddy? Should that even make a difference?

    I was wondering the same. Some sources seem to indicate a planned 3rd dive. Others make it sound like they were retrieving a lost anchor (or maybe freeing it).
