Ok I am makeing several assumptions here.
First, my wife would really preffer to dive with me as opposed to just listen to stories of what I claimed to have seem.
Second, I am diving
off my boat
or dingy which assumed to be anchored.
I'm really looking for a couple of ideas on how to stay safer.
Just a couple of thoughts. And I realized that this is probably going to sound far more paranoid than I actually am. I'm just trying to think ahead and do some planning.
If I'm diving
with my wife, I'm not real keen on the idea of having to swim back to the boat
against the current
. ( done that once, was very unhappy on both our parts
.) Solution here is to either dive with the dingy as a float and tow (drift dive) or just watch the current
and pay attention to the conditions (most likely). Thoughts on how to keep both people safe and happy when there is no one left to come get you or report you over due.
Diving alone (Hi Kai), does your wife on board keep a good eye out for you and your time of return or just knock back the beers and ponder your life insurance
policy one more time?
Do you keep a set 'what to do if' items? Does your partner just drop you off, follow you on your drift dive, pick you up and bring you back?
Prudence would dictate that you take a good read on the water
condition always and abort the dive before it anything becomes and issue or if conditions aren't condusive to diving. That being said, my personal realm of being comortable with conditions in probably a lot more broad than most peoples in many respects.
any existing diving procedures?
