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...

Also, consider looking into a local diving club, there is Moss Bay, Marker Buoys, Kelp Crawlers, etc. Marker Buoys are the most active.

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 ...

Re: Dalco Wall Images and planning

hmm, every web search for Dalco wall slack before flood, says just that. Dive into the flood.

I see your post for 2007 stating you dove the ebb, one hour before slack (flood). Might have to try that. An hour into the flood it was looking pretty good as we were lickign our wounds.

Now if we can just figure out how to not get spanked by current on it. Diving into the flood didnt work. By the time I hit the water on a ...

well, DIW we generally use minimum of 1 hour before reported slack. 20m before slack at DIW you're gonna get spanked during that dive.
