Re: Water in SPG Gauge

Could the two little O-rings that sit on either end of the long pin tube thingie be the culprit? The long pin is called a spindle (at least that's what I've been told). If those O-rings were bad, you would see champagne bubbles coming out. Those O-rings can't fill your gauge with water. There is a ...

Re: Atomic Cobalt computer issues

Plus 1 on Shearwater. Had Cobalts (four of them) and had some problems. I've had Shearwaters for several years now, not a single problem. Can't recommend them enough.

Re: Is old air really an issue?

Owner of a lonely fin

Have you been at Cove 2 recently swimming in circles? I might have a solution for you. We (okay, Daniel Geldof) found an Oceanic Vortex V12 split fin last night. Describe the unique markings you wrote on the fin and it's yours.

This year, Anthony's on Roatán does carry DIN valves. Just to say DIN might becoming more available. 4. If they had not had DIN, ...
