Hi

We have discussed this elsewhere. I have also been 'taught' to tie off to a wreck and also to deploy midwater. I've never liked the tie off option because you can't rely on finding a place to tie off, I'd rather not touch the wreck believing in conserving the experience for other divers, and lastly, I'd rather reel in from a shallower part of the dive rather than my max depth.

Kindest Regards

WL

If your deploying from shallow then even with a very mild current you and your blob could pop up far from your boat and they may not see you, in fact most of the skippers i have dived with have said that if you bag up you bag up from the wreck, not midwater unless you have too.

Also, i dont see anything wrong with tying into the wreck before you deploy, it can save many a birds nest and stressfull times.

All the best

This has been discussed elsewhere in the equipment section under reels.

This thread is a poll and I gave my vote.

Kindest Regards
