14 Diving Report Some points from the dive logs Some points from the dive logs There are a number of entries where the dive depth exceeds the MOD of the gas entered on the log sheet – in one case to a PPo2 of 1.67 at bottom depth – this is potentially fatal and must stop There are a number of entries where the dive depth exceeds the MOD of the gas entered on the log sheet – in one case to a PPo2 of 1.67 at bottom depth – this is potentially fatal and must stop Please respect the MOD of your gas – plan dives accordingly with the dive manager Please respect the MOD of your gas – plan dives accordingly with the dive manager

15 Diving Report Another point is – on quite a number of dives logged – there is a sometimes substantial difference between buddies dive times – Buddies should surface together under normal diving conditions – there should be no leaving buddies on Deco stops or at the bottom – this is another potentially fatal situation.
