Certification Dive on RAID RB 65 Deco course. Great dive, spotted both a Norway Redfish (Sebastes viviparus) and a few Lithodes maja. Great dive that went pretty smooth until I relized that there was some heavy current at the surface when I deployed my SMB from 21m. The line was in a 45 degree angle to the surface, so it took some effort to swim around the wall, into the bay where the current settled. Spent 23 minutes in deco at 6 meters. I now have 106 Open Water Rebreather dives with a total divetime of 101 hours, counting OW time.

Fifth OW Dive on RAID RB 65 Deco course. Not many drills on this time, it was time to get deep and with a max deco time of 15 minutes, it was also a short dive. Did 7 min at 60m before ascending in a controlled rate, keeping the deco within the limits. Ended up doing a deco at 6 meters for 15 minutes.

Fourth OW Dive on RAID RB 65 Deco course. This was a bailout dive. So not much use of the breather on my back. We went down to 43m, did a couple of drills and then I bailed out. Coming up to 21 meters for the gas switch to 50% and finally reaching 6m for the final gas switch to oxygen.

Third OW Dive on RAID RB 65 Deco course. This dive was a practice dive on a ascent with the oxygen turned off, so a lot of diluent flushes on the way up. Also I had to run the breather as an O2 breather from 6m. A great dive in terms of understanding pO2 behaviour during an ascent.

After the exhausting wreck dive at M/T Martina, we headed back to Kullen for a nice recrational reef dive. This was my 100:th OW dive with my Poseidon Rebreather. A lot of fish and an amazing nursery chamber for starfish. I have never seen so many starfish babies before. Still have about 5.5 hrs to do before breaking the 100 hour mark in OW.

Wreckdiving on M/T Martina. Quite strong current at surface. Mild current at 5m, so we had to pull ourself down on the anchor line. Not much remains of the wreck, as she has begun to sink into the sandy bottom. Bridge has collapsed, but did some penetration into the quarters. Running the breather at a SP of 0.8 and trying to maintain 1.0 with manual addition of O2.
