Re: New

And the bad part is they were BOTH there.

Actually It was great to talk to them. I had met Tom before when he displaced much more water but I don't believe I had met Bassman.

Re: FS: Single TANKS S/S HP100/80, LP 108/80/72, AL 80/62/30

Sorry. Forgot to check my messages. Let me see what I can put together.

What I meant to say was "you realize, none of these are stainless". Saying they are stainless may be confusing people. They are galvanized steel. What brand are the 3442 100's?

I'll take the 2 3442 100's if we can figure out a way to get together. You realize one of those are stainless?

Re: Cove 2 Octo on Some Eggs

Something didn't look right to me but I'm not an expert on these things. Partially the octo was way too small for the eggs.

On the snow tires you don't want to skimp, I need to sell as many as I can. Difference is that snow tires wear out.

Steel 100, but I don't want it filled to only 3000#. I want the air left over afterwards.

I have come up from a night dive in Coz with our Dris 1000's and other people were complaining that they might as well not have brought their lights.

Re: Drysuit: Extra layer of clothes, how much extra lead?

I love the warm feeling of being able to drop some air from my BCD and add some to my drysuit. You have to carry enough lead to do that.

Re: entry level gear

I'm with fmerkel on the drysuit and aluminum tanks. If you can't stay warm you won't dive. AL80's are for warm water divers. I did my certification dives 30 years ago using a back inflate BCD. Didn't like it then and still use standard BCD's. Still like my gauges all in one console. Rent, borrow and...

Re: Rebreathers and other gear

I'd just take a little discount and get the hydro's done here or in Mexico where I plan to take these someday. I'm located in Oroville, WA Where are you at? I'll try to get them paid an picked up.

Thanks,

Re: Rebreathers and other gear

Hi, Are the AL80's post 1990 and in hydro? If so I'd take them but we may have to go over logistics.

Re: Waterproof Drysuits for Puget Sound Diving?

In outfitting 3 of us I bought 5 used drysuits. One we have not used. One my wife quit using when we found one she liked better. We have since used her first one as a loaner, and I could sell it but don't want to. Ended up with one new zipper and put Si-Tech seals on 3 suits. For about $3000 we have...

Somebody on Scubaboard posted about airfares from Seattle to Cancun around $270 in December, January and March. We bought ours so now you can. $539 on United for the two of us.

Re: Is steel really that big of a dfference for weight?

You need to do a weight check with a near empty tank. You will need 6 or 7 lb more when empty. There is about 5 or 6 lb difference between an AL80 and a 3442 steel.
