    Yeah looks like a 3 min @ 15fsw SS would cover all bases. My perspective is I get 2 extra min in the water. I love being in the water. Why would I want to shorten the time?

    Agreed. This thread makes absolutely no sense standing on its own.

    But as a troll, it's still great fun to read!

    I don't doubt that you call it as you see it ... but after reading that post over a few times, it left me wondering what you're seeing ... :idk:

    So, in summary, a deco dive is defined as:

    • Every dive is a deco dive

    • A dive during which you go over the Non-Deco-Limit (NDL) of your table, computer, or mind-numbing calculations

    • A dive during which you have a decompression stop, which is defined by you naming it a decompression stop

    You don't want that one to kiss you ... not unless you're into getting intimate with an electric fence ... :shocked:
