Dive Planning using a table

We all learn some form of dive planning in our original open water class. Years ago it was with Navy tables, then moved into the PADI recreational dive planner (RPD), then someone came up with the wheel...which sucked, then the eRPDml which is a digital calculator and finally we all have dive computers now with a planning mode.

These videos will hopefully make you a safer diver. -Dave
