Re: Seattle area shore dives some guidance or suggestions

Also I thought about a dive just east I think east of Les Davis past the RAM eatery along shore there are 100 or so pilings with a bike stuck on one. No doubt shallow but probably a fun place to explore. Plenty of parking across road and an easy walk to the water That's called the Ruins by many. It...

Re: Equalizing *After* Diving

It's way worse with a rebreather. I have "crunchy ears" anywhere from a day to two days after a dive depending on deep, time and how often I've been diving.

Sun 7-15 - Mukilteo T-Dock Milky white viz was about 6-12" down to about 30' then it opened up, getting better as we went deeper. We probably had 20' or so at 130'. Hit the geodome on the second pass through, lot's of fish hanging out, including a big rat fish. Pretty good current though and it...

Re: Free lead, yes there’s a catch.

I work in S-dale, and could use a couple 2lbers. I can pick the rest up and distribute them out to others as long as they promised to get them recertified.

Re: Crabbing Sat June 30?

WDFW website says Area 12 (Hood Canal - South of the bridge) opens on the 30th.

Looks like only Areas 11 and 13 will not open this year.

Re: 2017, Wrapping Up - # of Dives? Highlights? Lowlights?

Hey Tim, lets splash this year. I got 71 dives, nothing exotic, all Puget and BC. My faves were Snake Island Wall and Hoko Reef. It was a lot more shore diving plus charters as my boat was available only a few months. Definitely Dan! It's been way too long since we've splashed together, maybe five ...

Re: 2017, Wrapping Up - # of Dives? Highlights? Lowlights?

Dives = 50+

Highlights = Diving the Warren and the Sherman car in Lk Crescent. Diving the Bomber and the Dowell in Lk. WA.

Lowlights = Not diving enough this fall.

2018 = More diving. Lots of practice playing with multiple bottles, finally finish up Mod3.

Re: Where to get Argon fills

Hoodsport-N-Dive, both the Tumwater and the Hoodsport stores can fill your Argon tank.

If you're using the little 6cf tanks, try the 13cf tanks and get double the dives out of one fill (thats what I do).
