I don't think that they are. I had one of their STAs. It was cool. Beefy, but cool.

Re: Grenada in December

It is the best Caribbean trip I have had. The diving is good, but not great. There are a lot of wrecks, which is good for me, but it might not be everyone's cup of tea. The diving is also a little deeper there than other other places, I recall doing a lot of 85-120' foot dives. The marine park with ...

Re: Hyperbaric trip experience/getting bent call for insight

Diving that many days in a row plays a role. I take a break in the middle of a dive trip to reduce the stress on my body.

Re: Computer Security

There is some 3rd party stuff out there that should work, but I haven't looked at anything that wasn't an enterprise solution in a long time. There should be a few "trial versions".

Re: Why Divers Panic

You can really insert 'people' instead of divers and have the same conversation. People that are panic prone on the surface will be panic prone under it.

Re: Reef Hooks

The currents at Blue Corner are brutal to say the least. I am a pretty strong swimmer and didn't have a prayer in fighting them. Watch the down well when you are close to the walls and if the DM says move out into open water, do so as quickly as possible. You will get slammed down 40-50 before you c...

Re: Shearwater Petrel GF Settings

That makes sense as far as GF and NDL influence. Thanks for the clarification. I was on 21, but everyone was on 21 as well... Oceanic comps have notoriously liberal NDLs. And I wouldn't go playing with the GF settings until you understand what they mean..... wuss Yes. But I am trained up to technic...

Re: re-breathers

Not many. I am very recently certified in technical diving. I can only share my opinion, which is limited. Yet, I do not think this makes what I am saying invalid, or terribly ill-informed. I might ask, how would you view my comments if I had 200-300 dives in the 130-199 range? I think many here wo...

I am certified to dive caves and trimix.... I am not sure that I am ready for Eagles Nest. To take a bunch of new gear, air and your 15 year old in there? That is criminally stupid. However sad it may be, it was a bad choice.
