Alternative uses for drysuit undergarments

After a nice dive at Edmonds Underwater Park sometime last year, I ended up taking a several month long hiatus from diving (work got busy, blah, blah, blah--all lame excuses, I know). When I finally got back in the water months later, I couldn't find my Santi BZ400 undergarment or undergarment bag a...

Re: Puerto Vallarta Trip

This thread is probably a bit stale but I figured I chime in. I went a few years back on a shared boat with Vallarta Undersea and PV Scuba (seem to be out of business now). DMs from both shops were in a BP/W and had done some level of cave training in the Yucatan FWIW so there was no weirdness from ...

Re: Housing for Nikon D3200

If the housing finders on Optical Ocean Sales' or similar sites doesn't turn up anything, a housing for the camera isn't available (unless it's an older model where you may be able to track down a used model). Manufacturers usually only produce housings for certain cameras that are popular or that w...

Sund Rock was quite good (25ft or so I'd say) from the surface to 10ft and from 30ft on down with peas soup in between.

Re: Viz Reports Thread

Lake Washington at Madison Park Beach on the Corsair wreck was actually pretty good for the lake this morning. Probably a good 10-15ft of murky lake viz. It's probably better than the sound lately based on the reports above.

Try posting a 'want to buy' ad on Scubaboard. Somebody may have an old housing laying around that they're no longer using.

Re: 45 degree viewfinders

I've had the Nauticam one for several years, first using it with a Canon T2i DSLR (smallish optical viewfinder) and now with an Olympus E-M1 (larger electronic viewfinder). First I have to say that the magnification is really, really nice and I'm not even farsighted (yet). Looking through the unmagn...

Re: Club Dive! Club Dive! NWDC Invades Sund Rock! 09/06/2014

It was a great day to be out on Hood Canal for the club dive. The vis when we got in for the first dive at the entry for the south wall was so crummy, we couldn't even do a bubble check! Once we got away from the shore, it got better enough to at least be divable. Below 60ft, the water got about 10 ...

Selling this Olympus XZ-1 complete setup.

Cove 2 tonight around high tide was surprisingly good. 20ft or so of vis. Lots of egg yolk jellies floating around and being devoured by anemones.

Re: Viz Reports Thread

Edmonds Underwater Park was all over the place this afternoon (5/29) at high tide. Maybe as low as 5ft in the shallows on our way out and 25ft at 15fsw when we dropped with seemingly random variation at points in between. Lots and lots of tiny jellies in the water column for much of the dive.
