Hey B,BigB said:This is getting a bit long...will stop here and carry on if there is interest, don't want to clogg your forum. I will accept private mail or skype chat but prefer to do this openly so everyone gets the true facts...1 thing I think we owe Dave.
There are considerable scientific and technological problems with CO2 sensing which makes the production of a reliable sensing unit for RBs extremely unlikely with current technologiesAnd said:CCR's don't have a co2 sensor (sorry, yet )
BigB said:Hi Mark,
when Dave got to the body in Oct 2004 the head and hands were skeletonised, he spoke to a lot of medical people and was assured that the body was skeleton and would weigh nothing ( be negatively bouyant- or at least lie still..)
The bag was specifically for that, so that bits would not fall off or out of the wetsuit. As it was the skull and hands did not come up but on ther video it can be seen that those fell of while Dave was working on the body.
Dave did Practise with a real diver ( Don) at 20 m and managed to put him in the bag in under 2 min.
The bag was specifically made for this, made of silk with drawstrings arround the ankles, middle and top. The plan was to put the feet in, pull the drawstring and then work the bag up till the waist, then cut the BC webbing of ( asuming the tanks were stuck in the mud as he originally found) and slip it the rest of the way, the bag was then to be passed up to Don ( 220) and from Don to me (84)
There is nothing graphic whatsoever about it plus he’s not being mirdered so It doesn’t qualify as a “snuff” film I actually think they should post the whole thing although tragic it is I great educational tool to not make the same mistakes as he did I’m sure Dave would agree. Although I can understand why he’d want to go back down and on the other hand I don’t at all. I will say he is a man of his word and he kept his promise to those grieving parents who I’m sure are devastated about what transpired as wellI should bloody well hope not. Its not some snuff video FFS.
