Re: My Diving Accident End of June

My god that is a scary story and a horrific experience. Glad to hear you’re going to make a recovery. Do they expect you to fully regain your eyesight? I hate fussing with contacts on dive trips. I will be much more careful going forward, based on your story. Thank you so much for sharing. Sometime...

Massive Exchange, we had weird and shifting currents, downwellings, etc. Viz was excellent (For the walls), maybe not the best, but it was up there. We splashed around the l...

Rosies Ravine, Hood Canal.

Jeff and I took the boat and did Rosies Ravine in Hood Canal. We headed deep to scope out anything, but at 200ft was nothing but Sea Pens. Coming back up we finally hit Rosies Ravine. What a wonderful dive site. We spotted 5-7 wolf eels, with one swimming out in the open. TONS of rockfish. Great str...

Re: Seasoft Fined For Dumping Lead, Arsenic

What many don't realize, is L&I has several enforcement units that are funded by fines. Appeals are tough, because you don't go to a judge and court, rather an L&I court, and I use that term very loosely, as rule of law doesn't exist. These units used to report publicly, but are now hidden

Re: Dalco Wall Images and planning

I hit the water about 15m after slack before flood, and got spanked. I was pushed west, not east towards the terminal. We anchored at the WSA buoy, which is ever slightly east of the old foundation. I wish we could say we learned something from this, but so far all we know is the timing diving into ...
