    Crane, that is what they need a marine crane. Then put one of those commercial diver rescue rings on top of your BPW, they help take the weight of the tanks or doubles. Heck I would love that the ladder is one of the most annoying parts of ocean diving. Well other than having to get up at zero dark thirty to make it to the boat on time.

    Up north a bit from Hammond was once the esteemed dry goods operation, Marshall Field’s department store

    ol’ Marshall himself, in his heyday, used to say

    They have no need to cater to gimpy middle aged gal tech divers. Not very many gal tech divers on the Great Lakes period, let alone gimpy middle aged ones. Plenty of guys clamoring for the tech charters. I am numerically insignificant population.

    I spent most of my deco diving in sidemount in the Great Lakes.

    Lately I’ve found managing deco gasses on a boat to be easier in backmount, lol.

    @abnfrog , @ChuckP
    This isn't intended as a slam to @Marie13, there is a big difference to helping a diver up the ladder if they need it and doing it for them every single dive, week after week, year after year. If someone cant handle the gear they have no business tech diving, they are just a liability. :wink:

    @Marie13, A workaround for training might be small tanks, if the class depths allow that, LP50s/AL40s. Side or backmount.

    I actually support you, wish you the best, and want you to succeed. I just dont like people bad mouthing the crew and boat when they've done nothing wrong and have gone well beyond being helpful.:)

    Ps, I tried to pm you, it seems you've blocked me. :coffee:
