    It's worse than that. I can't even figure out what's being recommended for the ascent if you have between 15-30 minutes of deco (which is basically all my T1 dives)!

    Easy. 21 minutes of deco? 21 second slide/pause. Duh.

    James--

    Some local GUE trained divers are calling BS on this. I'd be surprised if you posted something that wasn't true--you seem stand-up. But, can you verify where it came from?

    It's from the horses mouth. You have to have a GUE membership to view it, but it's located here:

    http://www.gue.com/files/Standards_and_Procedures/SOP_Manual.pdf

    EDIT: Maybe you don't have to have to be a registered member if you have the direct link. :) ... I just tried it from a different browser that didn't have my gue credentials in it and it opened the PDF. Let it load and search for VPM and it will take you right to the section that talks about the deco ascent profile.

    I agree that the 15/30 second slide/move is pretty nit picky. There are still plenty of people with bottom timers that do not have second timers. As far as the "if o2 is available" statements, there would be dives where you're only using 50% and o2 isn't needed. That's how I took it anyways.

    It opens for anyone (I'm also not logged in and it popped up).

    The deco stuff is on page 1 (after the ToC).

    I guess they just don't give you a link on the website unless you are a member. :)

    Odd that this also wasn't sent to all students. Seriously, how hard would that be?

    JJ sent a email on the quest list a week or two ago about giving members more benefits. I think this is a pretty recent document. There's a new link when you sign in that say's "My Membership Benefits". If you click on it you have access to some videos, documents, etc... The higher your membership level, the more stuff you have access to.
