Please know I am not being judgemental of you or your diving. I glad there is another diver looking to advance and do more challenging dives. Many of us have been right where you are now and have made many mistakes along the way and had some wonderful times and made some great friends.I guess my concern is my local area is all 0 viability silted up shipping lanes so I'd like to do some learning to give me a platform to then do more advanced diving with experienced groups. All my diving is on holiday (1-3 weeks per year).
After reading @SlugMug s post, please understand below 40 meters things really start to get interesting when things go bad. You had better be ultra serious and ready for the chore of getting back to the surface. Things get a lot different at 60 meters when it goes bad and you might as well be in a cavern or cave as the surface may not be readily available to you. Like I said it took me 2 years and that was diving 30 to 40 dives many months. But when it was done, I could hold my own and my buddy did not worry, If I needed to get him out of the cave or to the surface. Its all your choice and decision. Please just make the right one. I promise you, there is nothing at 60 meters worth loosing your life over or that of your buddy.
I will shut up now and get off my soap box. Please have fun and enjoy your diving.
