    I think if you go the Broward County Clerk's site you'll be able to find the documentation filed in the Stewart case. I believe that the dive profiles were included in one of the rEVO filings--though that might have been when the case was in Federal Court. If I can find some time on the week-end, I might be able to dig them out of my files, but I'm teaching this week and fairly pressed for time.

    That's generous. He claimed the guy wasn't certified and didn't bother to check the only place where one could actually find out. Either the guy is a total amateur, which I'll admit is a possibility. Or, he's deliberately posted the false information. The latter seems more likely since the solution is so obvious that some random guy on the internet was able to figure it out.

    Credibility. It's important. Some authors don't have it.

    Hi P,

    That's the sixty four thousand dollar question, and very likely the root cause reasons why one professional's life is in shambles, and one professional is deceased.

    I firmly believe, relating to the dive profiles/obligated deco, what they should have been and what they were, are two entirely different things.

    I think Mr. Sotis is only alive because he got back on the boat. if the boat had been any distance from their re-surface point, they both would be gone.

    Rose.

    The three final dives posted below. These are the printouts from one of his two computers but there is little difference between the information on the two.

    Dear Sir,

    From these three charts, what do you surmise, diver error/computer error/both/neither/rebreather fault/mix problem, I'm sure this list could be considerably longer and beyond my talent to grasp.

    Whatever happened, affected them both in a similar fashion, Mr. Sotis just happened to be lucky, when he blacked out as he was on the boat and was attended to, Mr. Stewart was not so fortunate.

    I do remember, during the film, Mr. Stewart commented on diving with the ''best rebreather''. further, in one of the films, Mr. Stewart was seen diving with a different rebreather. I don't know what it was, perhaps another member can shed some light on what it was, and how it factored in, if in fact it did.

    I want to understand, and any accurate knowledge would be greatly appreciated.

    Rose.

    I’ve known a few tech & CCR divers who tread water on the surface rather than inflate their wing. Seems totally silly to me. Call me lazy but if I have a 44# lift wing to lay back on and wait for the boat, I’m waiting for the boat taking it easy!! Not to mention the reduced activity is better for your body after a long deco dive.

    I’ll take the lazy way. Lay back, enjoy the sun, wait for my ride, and if truth be told I’m usually peeing upon surfacing so the extra time is welcome

    Personally, I question the GF as possibly being too aggressive.
