A set of five sheets of self-adhesive, color coded, decompression dive planning decals. Each sheet offers color coded sections that are to be filled in by you in the depths and measurements of your choice. Designed by Deco-Decals to fit perfectly on a standard curved wrist slate and to be used multiple times before discarding. Each sheets contain five die-cut, color coded decals printed in a high gloss ink for easy reading both above and below the water. Each decal is easy to write on with a fine-tipped, waterproof Sharpie and also very easy to clean with a "magic eraser", both of which are included. Suitable for OC and CC dive planning and an excellent tool for training and technical diving environments.

Each sheet contains five different decals:
  • Green Decal for listing the Main Dive Plan with dimensions of { 2 in x 4 in | 5.1 cm x 10.2 cm }
  • Yellow Decal for the Next Depth plans with dimensions of { 1.5 in x 4 in | 3.8 cm x 10.2 cm }
  • Yellow Decal for the Next Time plans with dimensions of { 1.5 in x 4 in | 3.8 cm x 10.2 cm }
  • Red Decal for the Loss of Deco gas plans with dimensions of { 1.5 in x 4 in | 3.8 cm x 10.2 cm }
  • Red Decal for the Bail-Out plans with dimensions of { 1.5 in x 4 in | 3.8 cm x 10.2 cm }

How to use your Deco-Decals? Using the supplied black fine-tipped waterproof pen (aka Sharpie), write out each of your chosen plans onto the correct color-coded decal. Peel the decals from their backing and apply them to your wrist slate. Press firmly, removing any air bubbles. Wear and use your slate as usual on the dive. ?

How to remove a dive plan from your decals? Use the supplied a 'magic eraser' (aka melamine foam) to gently wipe over the decals and remove the ink - a very slight shadow may remain. Do not rub too hard or use any abrasive cleaning products; doing so will dramatically reduce the lifespan of your decals. Once cleaned, rinse with freshwater to remove any residues from the cleaning products and dry. For subsequent dives, there is no need to remove the decals from the slate, it's easy write on them even when they are already applied to the slate.

How long do the decals last? Each time you clean your decals, you remove a very thin layer of the protective varnish coating that covers them. In our experience, this occurs after approximately 10 separate dive plans have been recorded and run. After this the decals will need replacing.

How are the decals removed from the wrist slate? Just peel them off. There should be little if any residue left from the adhesives, but if the decals are left on for an extended period then some adhesive will remain on your slate. Replace with new decals and start over.

Can the decals work in both freshwater and saltwater? Yes. The location of your dive site does not affect the performance of your decals. Rinse with fresh water after each dive, the same as you would any other piece of scuba equipment.

Will the decals work for multi-level dives? Yes. The decals have three spaces available for you to record deep stops. The far left is the maximum depth you have planned and then the subsequent two cells can be used for other deep stops, getting shallower as you move along the row from left to right.

    Besides, is easier to read underwater. What is missing: a place to signal gas change.

Plan Your Dive - Dive Your Plan

The well known phrase 'Plan Your Dive - Dive Your Plan' was first coined by Hal Watts, one of the very early cave diving instructors. The typical decompression dive plan consists of several different plans: the main plan that is expected to be followed, plus several contingency plans for emergency scenarios: exceeded planned maximum depth, exceeded planned bottom time, lost deco gas (i.e. decompression will have to be performed on less favorable backup gas), and bail-out or aborted dive (allowing a significantly shorter deco schedule). An important aspect of technical instruction includes learning the skills necessary to prepare these plans.

Good dive plans must balance between logistics concerns (available cylinders, volumes and mixtures) along with depth and time schedules. While desktop dive planning software has been a godsend for preparing technical dive plans, the technical dive computer does not relieve the need to prepare most of these plans before you jump in the water. That's because preparing any mixed gas dive plan includes optimizing gas mixture selections and most importantly breathing gas volume requirements. Technical divers never rely upon others for backup, so most technical divers still take along tables and bottom timer as backup in case their computer fails.
