Dive with Bob Bailey (Dive 61)

Seacrest Park - Cove 3, Seattle, WA. The main objective of this dive regarded buoyancy control. The idea was to get us task overloaded to see how well we can cope and maintain buoyancy. We would do this by navigating a predetermined course in mid water. This would remove all visual queues and limit us to the use of a compass, timer, and depth gauge for situational awareness.

Each diver would take turns doing a specific task. One was responsible for navigation using the compass and following a set of predetermined headings. The other was responsible for maintaining depth and using the timer to signal to the other diver when it is time to change course. This was probably one of the hardest dive's I've done to date.
