Maui shore dive, all the turtles!

We took a family trip to Maui last month to celebrate my dad's birthday. I managed to sneak away for 1 dive while I was there and did a shore dive in the morning at Mala pier. Since I hadn't planned ahead very well, I just introduced myself to a dive guide at one of the sites we were snorkelling and...

What's the vis like with all this no rain and no wind lately .. Any one seeing 40feet ?
On Tuesday the guy who got out ahead of me claimed he could see clearly from the geodome to the surface. By the time we got in the current was up and ours was not that good. i would say 25' at best.

Re: Edmonds 6/22?

I can't make it tomorrow unfortunately, but yes, 6:00am splash tomorrow looks like a good time to dive EUP from a tide perspective.

Good luck, hopefully someone is able to make it out with you.

Doc! Let's shoot for Thursday at Muk. Sadly the Cuda is still without a functional battery, so I will be a scooter pedestrian. Maybe just go kick the T-dock in search of critters like the old days? 4:00?

Good point, you may be able to just get the DIN fitting and convert the reg too.

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 ...

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 ...

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.....

INMAR RIBS

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!

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.
