    This film must be 30 years old! Did you see the dresses on the women at the dock? Thanks for posting.

    Not quite, but almost. At the end it says MCMLXXXIX (= 1989, about 24 years)

    Surface decompression? Sounds dangerous

    After watching that, it's wonder that any of us get back in the water!

    That's in a decompression chamber under MD care. Much safer than in water decompression.

    Surface deco,though. Sounds much scarier than the bell deco. Do they still do the surface deco or did they finally go to the bell?
