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.

Re: Titlow Beach (Park) - Tacoma

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.

If You Dive Sledgehammer at Lake Crescent...Read this

Not only did the rock over the trail in front of the parking lot, but now they blocked our last entrance to sledgehammer as well by building a rock wall.

Diving Dalco Wall

Jeff and I are taking the dive boat to dive Dalco Wall saturday. We know to dive on slack before flood.

But are there any offsets to the current stations we need to apply? (like we would for DIW for example).

We'll be anchoring to the WSA buoy.

thx.
