goes down they are usually off in the ding and/or sailing ding.
We have 3 towels. The white one off the backstay means come back soon please. The yellow means come back quickish and the red means get back here right now. Can be seen from a long way away and works very well.
D2, the younger one, now spend hours just cruising the seabed with a hooker unit we carry aboard. Keeps her quiet (not an easy task) and if we want her back we just turn it off, she pops to the surface a minute or so later, usually with a 'what the hell did you do that for?' look on her face
