Re: This is embarrassing...

About Fundies..... the only required prep I got for Fundies, was experienced advice from Jeremy - to impress Koos, flip him the bird at 100', and do a CESA to the surface. Did I miss something? Say "ahhhhhhhhhh" all the way to the surface... IIRC, it was actually "Brahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...

Re: For sale: Tech snorkel kit $60

seems very interesting, but im worried about My PPO going above 1.4 with such a snorkle, the other issue is what happens when im cave diving at ginnie springs and i have a failure ? Both of these are real concerns with closed circuit snorkels and even very experienced snorkelers have had accidents ...

Re: Ruston Way Walls

My only question is why we are giving the same wall multiple names... Because each wall has a beginning and an end? Or else rename it "one big ass set of walls" or "we found it and you explorer types didn't" I don't think the erosion of one portion of the wall qualifies the sepa...

Re: Sea star die-off

There are tons of sunflower sea stars still alive and looking healthy in the Hood Canal. At least at Sund Rock... I didn't see a single disembodied sea star limb during two dives there this weekend.

Re: Help me understand tides and currents

In short: aim to start your dive right before slack, but also look up additional info on a site. This may include information such as whether or not a site can be dove on slack, ebb or both, adjusted slack times (because a lot of the times the current station is not positioned exactly at the site), ...

Re: Thinking about moving to WA - where is the good diving?

For a wreck diver there isn't a lot of any size except the Diamond Knot west of Port Angeles. There's plenty! They're just reaaaaaaal deep... For wrecks, both fresh and salt water, check out Scott Boyd's fantastic webpage here, m, or pick up his even more fantastic book Northwest Wreck Dives . + 1 ...

I sent Tom Nic a PM many, many moons ago asking about whether the Thursday dives should be included in the weekly dives. The Thursday dives weren't occurring publicly and/or often enough back then to get them listed though. It would be cool to get them listed imo. Although I do have a question regar...
