Re: Happy new year !

The Camping reservation system for Ft Worden has been offline since October so I haven't been able to get up there since then but It is supposed to be back online mid Jan. Last I heard from Kim hi...

Re: Waterproof Drysuits for Puget Sound Diving?

What size do you need? I have a like new USIA with undergarment That I can let go of at a great price but I'm a fairly large guy so it wont fit someone of slight build.

Re: Heater vest canister info

That holds true for older NiMh batteries but almost all Li-on packs have built in protection circuits as they are required for safety. Once drained below a certain point Li-on batteries will not recover and are forever ruined so the manufacturers put in the low voltage cutoff as well as an over char...

Hey guys, I know I have made a few battery cans for heater vests and I need some info. since the battery packs have been supplied by you guys I don't know the particulars as to where they came from and the tech info. Could one of you give me some info as to source and voltage/amp rating and such. Th...

Re: Point Hudson

Yep, ebbs will get ya at Hudson. It's pretty simple really. If the tide is coming in it will have little effect because it is flowing north/south past the point. However on outgoing the point becomes the fulcrum of all that water trying to get out of the bay and around the point heading north. Curre...

Re: Pacific Spiny Lumpsuckers

I noticed a big drop off in the nudie populations the last couple of years but it could be cyclic because it seems to be feast or famine with some of them. Things like clowns that at one time were everywhere got to be very spotty the last couple of years and the shaggies are much less common too. Bo...

Re: New Fins

Good to hear you like your new light! Glad to hear your trip went well. Looking forward to seeing some pix. F-1's have very generous foot pockets so I would think a size large would work for you.

Re: New Fins

Jess, I highly recommend the Hollis F-1's I dove nothing but splits till I got my F1's and I would never go back. I was nothing but photography and I loved the effortless control they gave me! They come standard with the spring straps and that too is something I would never dive without!

It seems Lynne has helped me out one last time. I have been agonizing over my decision to quit diving for several months now and now I know I made the right decision and should not be tempted to lapse. If this can happen to Lynne I know that the little voices steered me in the right direction and th...

Re: NITROX problems

There are so many factors involved that you should not be trying to split hairs. This is all guesstimating to start with. Each diver is different and the tables are only numbers of a chart that is based on "normal" What is normal and who is normal? All of the chart numbers are very conserv...

Re: Just bought a drysuit at the UWS Divers Fair.

for anyone using rock boots I would highly recommend you consider the lace in boot zippers like the military uses. They make donning and doffing your rock boots way easier and quicker. I used them for years and they were the only way I would do rock boots

Re: Just bought a drysuit at the UWS Divers Fair.

Ah Ha! new info! I didn't get the part where you said the boots were way to big. Boots that are too big are a big deal! they are dangerous in that you not only have control problems you take the risk of them slipping off and leaving you in a very dangerous position. Fighting an inversion is one thin...

If you order from them you MIGHT get it in six weeks or so! They have a terrible track record! Plus it needs machining to fit. They all do.
