Decompression depths begin at 33', not 50'.
IIRC, staying above 50' meant you only had to ascend slowly, breathing out slowly all the way, not make an actual decomp stop.

No??? As I said, it HAS been 36 years.

That's SOP for an ascent from any depth. But I could be wrong aboutt the 33' thing. What the hell do I know? I'm not even certified!

I would think that no one would take any info they find on sites like this with a grain of salt. Surely they'd find out for sure themselves.

Good advice, especially when an uncertified person is discussing life & death matters with a 36 years expired certified person.

Decompression stops are for dissolved nitrogen from depth/time dives. Simple short shallow dives are much easier to figure out.At 32 ft (one atmosphere above surface) you've got two lungfuls of air in one set of lungs.Holding your breath in a panic to surface from even 15 ft will definitely rupture something .A fatal pulmonary embolism is the common result. Humming a happy tone as you follow bubbles up will help.but don't take my word for it. Better to be certified

Not trying to be the grammar police, but three of the posts in this thread say the opposite of what the author meant to say (double negatives or what not.) I wouldn't normally point it out, but for safety's sake, I will.

And to add my 2 cents, I used the excuse of hull cleaning to justify getting a new tank, getting equipment off eBay, and taking a dive class. Judging by the extensive ecosystem living on my hull at haul-out -- even after a very thorough hull cleaning over the summer -- it was worth every dime. Now I just need to do it more frequently!

Regards,
Brad
