Living in Brinnon, WA! Returning site user after a VERY long break...

Winter here. I joined in 2009, and I have nearly 600 cold water dives. I usually bring a camera on dives, but I am not one that just floats and constantly shoots that I get cold. I used to take more photos but with so much stock on my computer, I have fell into painting from those images rather than...

Re: Titlow piling removal? Giant barnacles removed...

It's dive able on Wednesday dec 17th, but would have to be there maybe 40 minutes before sunrise and in the water at sunrise which is also slack. I still am waiting to hear back from contacts to make sure I've got my ducks in line and that the collection is legit. Anyone even have an idea of how hea...

Re: Titlow piling removal? Giant barnacles removed...

Titlow piling removal? Giant barnacles removed...

Few weeks ago I dove Titlow and I saw the giant barnacles laying all over the place. Then someone mentioned the giant barnacles and mussels were scraped off the pilings recently to test for creosote in the pilings..(?). And that these pilings were gonna be removed soon. Looking through past threads ...

Fri. 21st: anyone contemplating Day Island or Titlow!?

I'm getting in the water. Probably Titlow over Day Island:/ What I have gathered: Narrows low tide is 1014, high tide is at 1536 with a swing of only 6ish feet. Midstream currents on the North end of the bridge has the SLACK before flood at 1110. Currents are predicted to be ~ 1 knot or less between...

(been dry for about 4 months and I haven't used the board regularly for years!) Now, I am finally graduating. So I thought I'd ...

Re: South Sound Thursday Diving

I'm looking to go diving as well, if someone doesn't mind me playing with my camera.
I could have tanks in Oly by 10, off to dive somewhere after that.
