Re: Another sixgill sighting

The one in BillZ's video is definitely different than the one I saw. Tail in tact and has that gash along the pectoral fin. Certainly more curious. Great observation-- although you sent a chill down my spine. BillZ and I were doing some pretty fast helicopter turns, in effort to keep one shark in f...

Ambient light at 200' and 120 year old wrecks better preserved than a lot of the wrecks in Lake Washington. Thanks for sharing.

Re: AOW

Bob is great, however I'm not sure Bob is teaching anymore. He'll probably chime in.

I believe Peter has hung up his teaching hat as well.

+1 Just untwist it a bit more. It's the pressure at depth that turns it on.
I have had this issue with this specific light and other twist on lights. Certainly nothing uncommon and nothing an attentive buddy can't fix for you :)

Lost light in Cove 2

A buddy of mine lost her light swimming from shore to the boundary line this evening. It's a black DRIS 1000 lumen light with a wrist lanyard. Please PM if you find it.
Thanks,

I'm a fairly new diver and have dove quite a bit with Peter(Lynn-LCF's husband, m), taken classes with Bob Bailey-Grateful Diver (m) and Frog Kick Diving (Brian-bdub and Jeanna-edge, m). They ar...

Did this shark have some white markings on top of its head? Like in the picture that DecidedlyOdd snapped a week and a half ago?
