    I'd have to check but my 100th may have been an ice dive in Stafford Pond RI; so a dry suit was the dress of the day.

    Dive 100 was my first dive to 40m. And part of the deep dive training. Wasn planned, but I like, that it was kinda a special dive.

    I said I was going to dive naked, but quickly realized it was a stupid idea.. Because the water temp was 4 degree.

    Maybe on dive 1000, I will inform you!

    On my Deep course the water was 1C (33F) on one dive (it was a May 26). I was diving wet (still do). On the bottom at 120' (37 meters?) I had to inflate my sausage.....

    Just checked my logbook for dive #100:

    Might have been difficult to demonstrate the requisite skills if I did that dive naked.. and at 17ºC (60ºF), a touch chilly too!

    Nothing quite like recording your 100th dive and also getting arrested for indecent exposure on the same day!

    Dove a cenote on my 100th in a 7mm which I would like to have taken off as it was too warm. But as to the tradition, not even in the halo cline where things may have been too blurry to make out.

    It's a stupid tradition. In any case, I did my 100th dive in Roatan. The water was plenty warm for some to do it but not me. I wear 5mm there when I'm doing more than a dive a day. If I wear my 3mm, I get cold about 40 minutes into the dive. I dove with my favorite people - my BiL and my Rescue instructor. My BiL made a 100th dive flag for me and they took a picture.
