I'm a warm weather diver only, advanced + nitrox, plus I've done some deep diving with multiple decompression stops, spare cylinders dangling from buoys etc!! Perhaps a little silly but I was young and immature.

Never done anything cold water. One day I fancy it, but too much to do, too little time!!

Why the f*** else would I put it there?

I did it, I've done it before, I'm still alive. Must be perfectly safe. We used to have bikes with tins of gas on the back of them all the time... just that was a bit of a different gas and a sight more dangerous than air!

Qualified as PADI Rescue Diver over in Austrailia back in 1989-1990, but since I had my pneumothorax and developed Asthma I'm not allowwed to dive anymore :0( last time I dived was off the Coast of Brac, Croatia in 2003 when I went over there to help close down the Adventitious training centre and get rid of the 8 ISO containers.
The best place I dived was of the coast of Belize... :0)
Good times.
