SCUBA diving for writers

A 101 to how to realistically portray SCUBA diving for writers
Darrin Jillson's insight:

Close but a few things were off. I recommend that a writer learn to scuba dive. If that is not possible hang out with people at a dive shop like you will be using in the story. Divers in different areas will have some of their own terminology or slang.  We frequently talk about grubbing. It is a specific activity that we do. Also fat floats so heavy divers need more weight.
