    No, I didn't. Thanks for the pointer!

    On the other hand, I don't agree with those who criticize posters for going off on tangents far removed from the original topic of the thread. That's just the way human conversation is, it goes off on tangents.

    Start a thread how you love your vest BC and snorkel

    The first post will be, I threw my snorkel away as soon as I got my OW certification.

    I think the snorkel is a pain in the ass. Perhaps if I were in a situation where I had to swim some distance on the surface, I'd wish I had it though.

    You might want to re-look the way you wear it.

    For off-shore diving, I carry a snorkel attached to my BP right next to the tank - very much out of the way. If swimming longer distances, you are probably better on your back which would not require a snorkel. The snorkel would probably be more helpful while resting, especially in rough seas.

    Simply ask if it's ok to wear your mask on your forehead while on the surface.
