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?

And just my two cents, there should be no odor. If anything smells, don't dive it.

Re: Hood Canal

I took you up on an offer like this a couple of years ago and had a fantastic time. Unfortunately, can't make it this weekend. Someone should really jump on this. :)

Re: What's up with Dive Logs?

FWIW I have 887 dives in 17 paper log books the last 338 logged on computer. I do backup my computer to SD cards but still, my paper log books are my ultimate backup. But that's just me.

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.

During a safety stop with my wife I drew a tic-tac-toe square in the sand. She wasn't impressed. :)

Re: Regulator Thoughts?

DIN or not to DIN. 1. I switched all my stuff to DIN, would not go back. 2. As of two years ago, Fantasy Island on Roatán did not have DIN valves so I used an adapter. 3. 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, ...

Re: What is you favorite recreational tank size

When I dive singles, I dive an HP 100 and my wife dives an HP 80. Turns out her air consumption is better than mine, so much so that our pressure gauges read the same. By the time I suck my HP 100 down to 2000 psi, he HP 80 will be nearly 2000 psi as well. But again, that was with single tanks. I've...

Re: Drysuit Repair

I've had a bad year for drysuit zippers. I've had to replace two already this year and a third one is sitting in the garage. I've had the two replaced this year at TLSEA, I will soon send my third one in to the same shop.
