Re: In Memoriam: Lynne Flaherty (LCF, TSandM)

Peter- like so many, I am grieving with you. A person did not have to know Lynne well to know well how special a person she was. Very sorry for your loss.

Re: Craigslist deals

I went through the "great DiveXtras garage sale of 2014" and picked up a few things I needed. The old proto type sierras were priced right for what they are, and Ben was righteous about the rest of the gems as well.

Re: Shops in the area that fill using a water bath

I believe one of the reasons water baths were used originally was in case a tank failed during filling.
