Default one hell of a deep dive

well afteralmost a year of having the dive plan hanging in my office if finally got the opportunity to do it.

I HIT THE SAND AT THE ORISKANY ON AIR!!!!!

i rolled of the boat with double LP 95's topped to 3200 of regular ol' 21% air and a 40cuft of 100% O2. my plan was

150' for 5,

220 for 5,

150 for 10,

120 for 10,

100 for 10

then deco out at 70 for 3, 60 for 3, 50 for 4, 40 for 6, 30 for 8, 20' on O2 for 12

i got down to 150, grew some balls and down i went, getting more and more hammered every foot past 190 i got. at about 210' it tookboth hands to turn my flash light on, but i had no problem checking my air/bottom time/elapsed time. i did however have issues figuring out my bouancy once down at 224' due to the rediculous amount of gas that it takes at that depth to make youneutral. after 3 minutes at 224'i had seen a large shark, some giant snapper and grouper and some pretty colors it was time to go. had to use the sideof the ship to get myself past the 200 mark where i finally got possitive bouancy and started making my way back up.

the"O" is definatelya different wreck now with the deck at 150'. what an experience...i have over 1000logged dives and theone where i didn't even carry my gun is now my most memorable.

TIME FOR HELIUM!!!!!

Sean,

I'll second your "time for helium" remark. I hope you don't have any more such dive plans hanging in your office.

Sean, glad you were able to do it and do it safe. Sounds like you planned it alright, and had enough redundancy to make it safer.I bet it was a quite an experience, helium and staged 02 bottles should be in your future! You won't catch me going past 135 anymorerecreationally unless its an emergency. I'm already on about life 5 or 6 and I'm tryin to save some for when I really need them the next few years. Cool post, hope to dive with you again sometime.

narced out of my mind does not even cover the experience. it was closer to not eating for 3 weeks then doing a shot of jack daniels every 5 minutes for 12 hours.:hoppingmad

fenderbender, i don't care what you say...the next dive we do together will be deaper that 130 and i gaurandamntee you that you want to go shoot some fish...you need a speargun with a welding lead for a trigger handle. hope school is going well

i don't know about sh*tting BB's but i am still verticle not pretzel shaped.

cheers guys
