    Steinhart Ocean 1 Black off the West Coast of Scotland, taken this afternoon. Apologies for the poor photo, taken at about 24 metres, the wrist computer is an Apeks Quantuum.

    cheers!

    Post liked, but I don't understand snorkeling. Even when I'm in good cardiovascular shape I can only hold my breath for 30-45 seconds at a time. How are you down 75 feet and not dying?

    Haha, I know what you mean, and I used to think the same thing - but it's just practice!

    I almost guarantee you that if we worked together for a day, then you'd get up to the two minute breath hold mark no problem - it's almost all mental. When you hold your breath, the oxygen levels in your body deplete, slowly. However, the CO2 levels go up really fast. The discomfort that you feel is mostly due to the rising CO2, and not due to dropping O2.

    So, you've got waaay more oxygen than you think, you just have to get used to the feeling of rising CO2, and staying relaxed (so that you use less oxygen).

    I'd say that you should get an experienced instructor (plenty of those is SoCal) and give it a go - you might just like it!

    Your worst day stuck on the surface wishing you could get underwater is better than your best day stuck underwater wishing you could get on the surface.

    I miss going into the ocean and swimming. Can't do it anymore due to a kidney transplant three years ago. Really stinks taking the wife and kids to the beach and I sit on shore like an old Grandparent just looking and watching.

    Anyway, this is a great thread. pleas keep them coming.

    Well, that sucks, sorry to hear ! But you have the great opportunity to be with them, so let's cheer for that !!!! .

    On a side note I think that Patrick was ableto do all that because his wingman Alan Fudge was wearing a Seiko, a 6105 !

    So like the OP, we all should wear Seikos to attempt to be near Man from Atlantis !
