A Game Changer in Underwater Photography

This researcher created an algorithm to reduce the effects of water in underwater photography. Pretty cool!

Re: WTB Used float for teaching

Completely forgot about this (stupid ADHD)! It seems to be holding air. I do not have an auger though. Will this work for you?

No credit to photographer? Is that what was blurred out in the bottom right corner?
It was on there and then blurred out. Lame!

I'm gonna ask for autographs the next time I see y'all!

Re: First Time Cold-Water Diver Checking In Here

Dry, definitely! Get a suit that fits well and the warmest undergarments you can manage. Many shops offer a drysuit orientation class with the purchase of a suit.

Welcome to the board, and to the PNW!

How cool is that?! Awesome costume!

We are going to an event for grad students at the Burke Museum and I haven't figured out my costume yet. I've been doing Sexy -insert non-sexy thing- costumes for years. I did Sexy Moldy Leftovers last year. Maybe a Sexy Rock this year? Sexy Parking Ticket?

Re: WTB Used float for teaching

I have one that you can have, but I will need to check when I get home to make sure it still inflates. It's not the greatest but you're welcome to have it for free.

WTB: wrist computer or bottom timer

Hello fellow divers! One of my nieces got certified over the summer (yay!!) and I sent her my backup gear plus some new stuff to help defray the cost. I am looking to replace the computer I sent her with an inexpensive option. Brand doesn't matter as I keep it in gauge mode. Let me know if you have ...

Re: Truth Aquatics Conception Boat Fire Tragedy

Interesting to see that the engine compartment didn't appear to be the source, and it sounds like the crew did all they could.

The only two exits for the berths went into the same area (not news, I know), but that will be something I look for the next time I'm on such a boat.

Re: Truth Aquatics Conception Boat Fire Tragedy

I'm not surprised by the latest legal proceedings, but that doesn't negate my outrage. Our house burned down when I was a child, and even as young as I was I remember my parents talking about the fights with the insurance company. Fortunately nobody was hurt, but we did lose everything, and my paren...

JFC. They should be shopping for caskets, urns, and flowers - which are brutal enough tasks when you lose a loved one - without having to shop for an attorney too.

Re: Regulator service

You may have a free or reduced service option with the shop you bought it with, so I would check with them first. Otherwise I'd send it to Don Peterson at Octopus Gardens.
