    Atlantic wreck, Lake Erie

    Does anybody dive this wreck? I had Mike Fletcher come do our dive show in Edmonton 4 years ago where he talked in great deal about his trials and tribulations with this wreck but it never occurred to me to ask him if people were still diving it.

    Testing requirements

    Do the agencies require shops to have their air tested regularly anymore? I heard that PADI stopped the quarterly requirement a few years ago due to liability concerns and I believe that NAUI still requires quarterly but what about TDI/SDI, SSI, and the others?
