Nice collection from the shipping lines! I see the old logo on the plate as well.

Re: Best options for cold water/warm water hybrid bp&w rig

Lots of good advice here. Just to add to the list, I use an OMS 4.5 lb stainless plate and a HOG wing for PNW cold water diving, but take the same rig to warm water. It's a couple pounds heavier, but I can still get all my gear in the bag without excess baggage fees, and previously used the same pla...

Re: The Bottle Thread

OK, not a bottle, but it is an un-damaged coffee cup, no cracks, no chips,found over the weekend in the silt at about 100'. As far as I can tell, this is the old ASC logo, which seems to have disappeared from 1927 - 1931 when the new logo showed up.

Re: Keystone 8/28

Nice shots, but be careful with UAS operations in that area. You're 2 nm from Coupville Navy airfield, within Alert Area A-680 and potentially within Restricted Area R6701, prohibited even under the new rules for Commercial operators.

Cove 2 Sunday AM, 0830, more of the same. Not as bad as a couple weeks ago, but about 5-8 all the way down to the Buddha at 100fsw.

Re: Viz Reports Thread

A great Thanksgiving started out at 0730 at Cove 2. Viz has noticeably better, considering the mud last weekend and the wind storm Tuesday, increased to a milky hazy 10-15 in the shallows and maybe 10-12 down below 20 or so. Water temp has evened out with no noticeable thermocline as of this morning...

Re: Viz Reports Thread

Cove 2, Saturday morning 11/21. Let's just say that I had to find the line under the dive float by braille today - and you didn't dare drop a fin in the shallows (just not going to find it). First 10' was probably 6-10" (yes, inches, not feet) max, opening up at 25' to about 5', maybe up to abo...

As I was running that line previously, I always thought to take compass bearings and time on the lines. Wish I had!

Re: Parking Enforcement Cove 2

Actually musical car swap has been used before with success - chalk just smudges a little.

With the 2 hour limit, doing classes is risking it, but I'd be all for a paid system there if we can get a number of hours like Redondo or Muk.

Re: Parking Enforcement Cove 2

We were out today (Tuesday) doing an open water class and parking at C2. Due to the nasty traffic snarl today, we got a late start in the water. Traffic enforcement came through about 1030 and chalked tires, but they had not returned by the time I left at 1:00. Just for info... it would be interesti...

Re: Viz Reports Thread

Cove 2 Thursday 0930, high tide starting outflow. Awesome fish-bowl viz continues, but there was a layer of misou soup about 20' or so. In the shallows, and once below, viz was most excellent.

Wolfies at Cove 2

Sure is nice to see a couple of young Wolfies at Cove 2. We were aware of one of them the past few weeks but found a 2nd younger wolfie in the same rock pile. The younger one was good enough to hang out for a portrait, but the other wouldn't have any of that!

Cove 2 : Lost Auger

The team lost an aluminum auger today in about 23' fsw, about 15' from the ferry boundary line. If anyone found it, you can PM me direct.

Thanks!
