This was a bit confusing but the whole team noticed and confirmed the arrow changes. Later on we were hanging out at Dive Outpost and asked DJ and he said sometimes you find this. It was not a big deal since we all noticed it but I could see this causing confusion if it were missed or even worse finding this in zero visibility. I don't understand the logic behind doing this at all.
    A double fatality was facilitated by a line arrow facing the wrong way. From computer downloads it was discovered the team went back and forth over a certain area, and conflicting line arrows were more likely the cause of the confusion

    I don?t see how your question has anything to do with the line change but the answer is no.

I did not verify that.
    I dove sweet passage on 05/13 and can confirm that the Sweet Passage is a full loop aka circuit and that is only at the end of it. Its a very short loop. IMHO that location should be a loop and no jumps. Get to the T, cookie it, swim straight ahead and you will basically loop clockwise back to your cookie.

    What worried me more are the yellow lines in the area which are T'd off into the lines, but lead into areas where you pretty much have to grovel thru the mud and there's already evidence of such which is a shame since the whole area is gorgeous. Those lines are "shortcuts" between existing lines and don't really anything useful for divers to visit.
