    Hi all, I was doing some reading on frogkick.nl on how to improve your diving when I came to a section on trim which looks interesting but I culdn't understand all of it. I was hoping that one of the Dutch members could help me out with a quick translation.

    Sounds like they're making a case for off-gassing in horizontal trim so as to make the process of off-gassing more effective. This sounds interesting but I'd like to know that I understand it correctly and also the explanation of the mechanism.

    Any help please?

    The software cannot spot a typo. "dee" is not a Dutch word, "deel" (UK: part) is. So it can only see "de" (UK: the) with an extra "e".

    "Staat" means "state" but can also mean "standing" as in "he's standing". it's difficult to choose which one you need unless you understand the sentence it's used in.

    Etc..

    Wonderlik! Baie dankie El Orans. I got it pretty close at least. Oh and the typo was probably my doing and not the website's error.
