What is perfect buoyancy

level of required skill will vary depending on the activity and experience but
what should that be?
Well not the ideal but a minimum tolerable target
+/- 1 - 0.5m
Well not the ideal but a minimum tolerable target when diving at this level and
not doing anything other than a safety stop or two

demo quality at definer stages better than this.
