It is non-unit specific though at times she will mention a Megladon or a Kiss unit which Simplifisd suspect is because of her intimate knowledge of those units. This self-published page text is all but outstanding.
Please amend, criticise as you wish!! All times are GMT. At first glance it looks like this was started as a training manual for an agency but then jumps back to a practical text.
Com Archive Privacy Statement Top. At my stage of the game this manual is a godsend. That gave me time to do an information dump from Mel Clark’s new book into my already packed brain. Looks like another late night tonight.
Mel has taken the complicated subject of Trimix diving with CCR and simplified it so that you don’t leave off any section in wonder. All times are GMT.
I’ve alluded to the opposite and will expand on it when I get the opportunity. It’s not a free ride.
She has done an outstanding job. Rich Pyle’s Learner’s Guide to Rebreather Diving is I think still one of the best things ever written on rebreather diving and should be but isn’t essential reading.

Don’t do this people, you’ll look like a fucking idiot.

Results yrimix to 6 of 6. Each builds on the information from the previous one. I am kicking myself I didn’t buy some more copies as I have had 5 pm’s from Aussies in the last couple of days asking if I have spares.
