That’s interesting. 148 feet! Looks like it has all sorts of good stuff for divers to do.

4 atmospheres. I would want to see something interesting if I am going to suck up that much nitrogen.

I had an internet acquaintance that dived Nemo 33 pretty frequently. Just deep enough to do some advance nitrox/deco procedures training. Pools make for boring dives.

Might be fun tossing a roll of penny's on bottom, and letting Polish kids dive for them like we did as kids.

My cousin Ray use to put all his change in a jar, on Forth of July he would dump in his Pool. All the nices, and nephew got to keep what they collected after diving to bottom.

I had an acquaintance from England, living on Grand Cayman. He was kind of a short, somewhat “round” fellow then, and still is. I came through Trinity Caves to the wall at +/- 100 feet, he was below me in the blue water (about 115’) on mask, fins and snorkel.

The Oro Verde had been sunk a few months earlier. He entered the cargo hold entrance (about 50’ deep) and swam through the ship and came out of the bridge door, probably 75-100 feet away - using only MFS.

In his day, Adrian could have probably free dived to pick up pennies in this pool.

He’s the guy in the middle, pic taken in 2013....

I did the escape training tower in New London when I was at sub school. Wish I could do it again. Had to use Steinke hoods. Ho-Ho-Ho, Up we go!!

I dived on the Oro Verde back in 2007. It had been pretty badly damaged by a hurricane but we did get to see some barracuda.
