Re: US Supreme Court may hear case regarding beach access

p.s. I am interested in this only as an intellectual issue. People walk the beach, and even fish from the beach, in front of my house and I would never try to stop them, even if the courts say I can. I just think it is neat that whales scoop up sand that my deed says is mine. I'm the same way as fa...

Re: US Supreme Court may hear case regarding beach access

This is interesting. I don't know how it works on fresh water frontages in WA, but for most of puget sound, your property extends beyond the high tide line, in some cases far beyond. In my case I own property in a small cove, and my property line is actually down the middle of the cove. I know some ...

While the waves don't bother me, the toppling trees around my home do, I'm out today to go start the generators and keep the family warm.

Cuda 400 needs a new battery

My cuda 400 battery has finally given it up. I know I could just send it to rabbitt and get it rebuilt, but I'm curious about other options. Anyone out there with a piranha and the Dewalt tool pack have any data on the true voltage of those packs? Would rigging up something like that work in the cud...

Re: INMAR RIBS

I still have the 19' skiboat for going out and going far/fast. This is the going for short trips out in the rain and roughish weather boat. The zodiac I have is a 12.5' ft Fish N' Hunt with an 18hp. It's open deck with a box in it for a seat. It's light enough that I can launch it even when the end ...

Re: INMAR RIBS

Current boat is a SIB, I was thinking of one of these to replace it. Part of me wants to go Aluminum RIB, but I use it just for running around close to home in the south sound, and I can buy ~3 SIB's for the cost of a RIB..... I saw one of the patrol series up in the san juans and they look pretty w...

Since I trust the opinions of people here more than random internet ratings, anybody have any experience with INMAR RIBs? My Zodiac is starting to fall apart on me and it's time to replace it. Spec's wise I think they look pretty sweet, but I have no personal experience with them. Thanks! https://ww...

Avoid the smoke, let's go diving Wednesday!

I figure the best way to avoid the ill effects of all the wildfire smoke in the air is to go breathe hyper-filtered compressed air for an hour or so. Anybody want to hit EUP or Muk on Wednesday afternoon? (around 3-4:00) Tide looks like it will be high, and that should be pretty close to slack, so n...

N end dive 7/18 or 7/19

Anybody want to hit Muk, or Edmonds this Thursday or Friday?

Currents look like doing the clay wall, though that would have to be Thursday to avoid the Wednesday market.

Early afternoon. I still Cuda! Battery is old and in need of repair, but no problem scooting to the clay wall.

Honudavis, if we scoot the wall one of us could tie you out there.

Currents look pretty do-able for the clay walls, or we could go hit the silver cloud.

Re: Sund Rock changes

I've only done sund rock once (at the club dive) and it's a pretty good spot with easy access and lots to see. $15 is what I paid to do flagpole out of Mike's Beach a few years ago (no idea what they charge now) so that's not all that out of line. For me the bigger issue than the cost of access is t...

Any suggestions as to where to get a good IP gauge?


I made mine out of a fitting from an old BC inflator and a compressor gauge from Home depot. Works fine.
