    When is it okay to abandon your dive buddy?

    For us it would involve attorneys and a division of marital assets, so we found solo diving to be much more economical. In all seriousness, a dive plan (including unexpected scenarios), eye contact and unmistakable hand signals are essential. Clear communication (before and during the dive) is...

    Backup regulators on dive trips?

    Agreed. When flying to a dive destination all the dive gear, tools, backup components and parts are packed first. The most critical gear is placed in our carryon (regs, computers, Freedom Plates, wings, cameras, masks, wetsuits, boots or booties). If the checked duffel bags exceed 50 pounds then...

    SOLD!!! Freedom Plate (Contour) Aluminum - Small #448

Initially driven out of fear our checked luggage could disappear (now the plates are ALWAYS packed in our carryon), but much more out of fear of having to dive something else...

    Playa del Carmen - when ?

    Agree completely with skipping Playa entirely (if possible) and dive Cozumel. I did some diving in Puerto Aventuras, just south of Playa del Carmen, and could not have been more disappointed.

    Freedom Plate Divers Roll Call: show us your rig!

    My first engineering job had me working with a crusty old design engineer. He had a little piece of paper titled “Par for a Project” thumbtacked to his bulletin board. I made a copy of it and it stayed with me throughout my career. This was standard operating procedure at Ford… The Six Project...

    Converse ?

    I wear a 10-1/2 shoe and have a relatively narrow foot, so to accommodate my drysuit I initially planned on going up one whole size. However, the boots were not offered in 1/2 sizes, so after reading they run slightly large I purchased a size 11W. Between the additional width, functional laces...

    Converse ?

    Check these out - Altama Maritime Assault Mid Boot. I use them with either 3mm or 5mm neoprene socks when diving wet. The laces adjust to a snug fit on a narrow foot. I remove the thick inserts when diving dry to provide plenty of room for my drysuit and wool socks. Well made, low profile, quick...
