A bit of fun - so some may think DIR divers are facists. Daz and I have decided to start up a new diving fraternity based on DIC - Doing It Casual.

Heres a couple of rules to start with - potential candidates must comply

1.  Must smoke at least 20 a day
2.  Must have 3 **** before each dive
3.  Must not be able to run 100yards in 20 secs.........

Any more rules


Wheres me coat..........?

Looks like I don't qualify  
I trust you guys will still dive with strokes though?

<font color='#0000FF'>Why on earth would anyone want to run 100 yards ?.  I passed my driving test years ago so i wouldn't have to run again.  I can see 100 yards if that's any help.

How about

'Turn up at dive site with empty cylinder and expect an air fill'

<font color='#000080'>Glad to see our little chat was not wasted Kirky and you have got the ball rolling.

A few other rules :-  

Buddy pairs must ensure their kit is not the same.
Buddy pairs are a nice to have and only considered essential if it is their round in the pub after the dive.

Me and Kirky have the final say on all rules and if you do not agree with our rules then you are can be a DIC diver anyway for showing the correct 'casual' attitude.

Must be prepared to discuss Rules and then decide not to in a very casual manner.

<font color='#000080'>Is that a subtle dig I feel in my back !,


In my defence the drysuits all came from the same shop, but I am doing my utmost to shag mine up so I can get a new one.   Quite like the look of the Otter's and also the Oceanic....   hmmm  decisions, decisions.

Good to meet up guys/gals.

No Daz it wasn't a dig, just an observation. I can recommend a cordura material suit though, Dave, Karen and myself can't all be wrong  
can we?

<font color='#000F22'>OK heres a few:

DIC divers must never carry spares (There is always some one on the boat with some and it's cheeper that way)

DIC divers must never use their own talc to put on their dry suit.

DIC divers must never use the same gas mix as their buddies

DIC divers must not use trimix above 80m as helium is for poofs

DIC divers will be disavoud for dive plans that are longer than five words.

A typical detailed dive plan for a single 12 ltr 30m dive should be'

'50 bar then up'

A typical Dive plan for 30m+ M dives

'100 bar then up'.

Advanced DIC divers should be able to expertly plan their kitting up time to make them second group in the water and next to last out. This avoids all ponsing about with the shot (which is far to much like hard work) whilst maximising bottom time.

DIC divers must own at least one large item of kit that is not black preferably a Insperation CCR.
