I have a few hundred dives in NJ and NJ vis being what it is you are solo, it’s one of the reasons NJ dive boats require pony bottles. Being a photographer I am solo.

This has carried over into dives elsewhere and yes that pony bottle has traveled.

There are some exceptions like shore dives with rough entry and exits, deep dives where there may be penetration or entanglement. We had a well know diveboat Captain with thousands of dive die in fishing line while diving solo. Do you have a line cutter reachable with both hands?
