Re: great white attacks kayak

I bet that it would suprise some to find out that there were zero fatalaties in the US from shark attacks last year. Another stat that I find surprising is that worldwide there are between 30 and 70 million sharks killed for their fins each year. I have started to ask, who is hunting who? This. Als...

Re: Break in!

I love my biometric mini vault too. So how reliable are these biometric safes? And how are they powered? (I'd search for myself but I'm currently on my phone. And always lazy, too) I know people (Doug and Ben) that swear by them. The reviews at Cabelas.com are mixed. Some say that the biometric sca...

Re: Contact lenses and diving

1. I wore hard lenses for 20 years until I started diving. My eye doctor was a diver and recommended 2 week disposables. I have an astigmatism, and the soft lenses I have now mostly correct it, but it's not quite as sharp as my old hard lenses. I don't care, I'm never going back to the literal "...

Actually, you can't really go wrong with anything on their website.

Re: How many dive with a wetsuit in the PNW?

On the topic at hand: I did OW and AOW in quick succession in a wetsuit, and did maybe 10 more dives before I dove in the first sub-50 degree day of the year. I immediately stopped diving until I was able to afford a drysuit. If you've found a wetsuit solution that works for you in February, then yo...
