Re: Diver closes others' tank valves during dives as a prank!

I read a true story awhile back as a guy on CCR was getting back into the boat, another asshat shut off his O2. The excuse was he wanted to see how the guy would react.

I can safely say how I'd have reacted... I'm thinking foot and solar plexus..

Re: Deep diving PADI certification in Seattle?

I was late to this one. There are a TON, and mean many many instructors int eh greater Seattle area. I've always preferred a private course. You pay more but you get so much more for your money. I hired Bob Bailey once for a weekend, and I learned so much that weekend, it was priceless.

Source, not really, But since it occurred a few days after diving, and with CCR, salt water gets spit around inside the mask(adjusting loop volume), I think it pretty safe to say came from salt water...

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...

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...
