Really a deep dive for open circuit? I'd have to disagree, it's a perfect dive for 32 or 36% nitrox and you can enjoy plenty of bottom time.
I'd argue it's a waste of time setting the rebreather up unless you wanted "hours" of bottom time.
Agree there's been a lot of accidents whilst diving the kyarra but that's only because it gets dived so often. If you worked out the %age of accidents per dive I'd bet it's no more risky than any other channel wreck
Hope the rescued diver is ok....
