What do you use to write on the mylar?  I've used permanent markers on
drafting mylar (topside) myself, but have never seen any that can be
written on with pencil.  I normally use a large homemade PVC slate
underwater and then have to transcribe all my data between dives.  This
sounds like a great option.
