Dive without politics
I vote yes, if all divers were required to have it, it would not cost a lot, after all, it costs a lot to recompress and evacuate divers.
Depends on the situation are we advocating compulsory Insurance for rescue treatment costs?[b said:Quote[/b] ]it would not cost a lot,
Hmm, a communist advocating the compuslory handing over of money to a capitalist company[b said:Quote[/b] (Andy the Commie 2 @ Nov. 02 2003,12:45)]I voted YES,
I feel that and waterbourne user should have a good insurance behind them to cover any incident.
I don't think it's right , that a club dive boat that loses a pair of divers and is broken down , should put £ 20 in the lifeboat box . The insurance company that covers that club should pay for all expenses.
Same goes for yachtsman down to canoists.
Example. A offshore lifeboat burning X amount of fuel, a seaking costing £ 3,500 an hour....then the costs of transport to chambers and the use of chamber and staff . someone should pay for this ,,,,,, why not the insurance company........
Just my thoughts .

BSAC has a membership of 45,000, SAA around 6,000, SSAC 1,900 and PADI trained in the region of 150,000 divers in the UK between 1996 and end 2001. i is not important how often divers dive, only if they dive in the UK.[b said:Quote[/b] (Mark Chase @ Nov. 02 2003,18:33)][
There are how many ACTIVE divers in the UK
I would guess 25,000 that actualy UK dive on a regular basis.

You don't actually get home. They wave you good bye at the chamber door in the clothes/thinsulate you arrived in without so much as penny whistle to busk for your fare home. Still, on the bright side, at least you're "able" to walk home.[b said:Quote[/b] ]Whilst diving at home, however, we will get rescued, treated and home without insurance so why get it?
