Re: Scootering EUP

Personally I would fear that a ADA suit would be solved by just saying OK no park diving the place is closed to all divers. That is a heck of a risk.

Re: BCD Inflator

I had that occur and took a dab of silicon grease and put it on the nipple of the inflator and then connected the hose and filed it up. It shoots the grease to all the inside seals and worked great

Re: Parking at Three Tree North

Just a thought becasue someone asked if it was a city owned no parking sign. Is it possible that the neighbor who's driveway this is protecting put the sign up. In Sitka home owners use wood 4x4s the city use metal posts

Re: Lost Gear Recovered in Lake Washington..

Could it have been dumped there from a partner / spouse that was trying to impress on their family diver that there was too much diving happening? :rofl:

But probably off a boat that had a unsecured load. :angry:

flexible fill hose

I am looking for a highly flexible hose option to put on my small fill compressor ( max air 35) so that it will be less likely to be damaged in storage on my boat. I was wondering if I can use the a HP scuba hose like the off brand miflex hoses for pressure gauges or if you know a better source. Any...

Re: Absurd question for the ladies

I just got back from a cruise and a lot of places you will not be able to wear gloves so that you do not get tempted to grab the reef. I think the masking tape idea would work well.

We're in Woodinville, so it would be an easy trip down to stop by our place and look at what we have.

Jeff I bought one of those wagons on the used market and ended up sending it home with my grandchildren because it felt like it would be a little tipsy on rough terrain, and going down hill was a bit awkward due to the yoke on the handle. Now I admit I did not actually put my gear in pull it, how ha...

Re: Epi-Pen in a Wetsuit?

I wonder if EPI PENS have ever been tested at depth pressures? I personally doubt it, and i doubt the manufacture would ever take any position other than don't do it, simply because they have not done the research for their own protection . I think you might want to take any expired epi pens on a te...

Lewiston, Clarkston Greater area

Can any one tell me about dive sites in the Lewiston Clarkston area. Are there any good spots in the rivers. I know its a long way from the ocean but wasn't sure if there were any additional possibilities.

Re: MASKS

I am baffled by the notion that frameless masks aren't safe. A low profile, frameless mask with a black skirt is ideal IMHO because for me, the view is better, I agree that they are easier to clear, and I found the visual noise to be distracting through the clear skirt. The HOG mask is super cheap,...

Re: Cheap started point and shoot camera?

The problem with using a Smart phone as your UW camera is what happens if it floods. Replacing your Smart phone might be more painful than buying a couple point and shoot cameras on the used market.
