[Coral-List] Odd diving question

It is generally thought to be a bad idea.
That said it has been done in the macho days of diving - it can submitted that it depends on how critical the mission is and what the depth/time profile is.

Then again I doubt that any DM, instructor, supervisor, MD or diving safety officer would allow it.

Just think: Temporary counterindication.
