Re: Trying to find the right CCR

My co-worker is a meg diver and has gotten me very interested in CCR, I know I cannot afford it till probably next Xmas or later. My main choices for CCR's are Meg, JJ's, rEvo, and Sf2.

The best way to fix a Cochran is to replace it with a computer that works.

Re: Dive gear

"It was for me at the time" pretty well sums it up. I'll vouch for the condition of any gear Mav is selling. We used to dive together. He takes good care of it.

Re: In Memoriam: Lynne Flaherty (LCF, TSandM)

I'm gutted. Lynne was special. I first "met" her on Scubaboard, and then on NWDC a bit later. It was 2006-2007, during the years of a lot of friction between the DIR community and everyone else. We were on opposite sides of that (stupid) fence, and we used to argue about nuances and arcane...

Losing the Oil dock sucks, but being able to scooter from the silver cloud (t-dock) around to the lighthouse park will be pretty cool.... My thought as well. Aside from curent, will this actually be possible? I find it hard to believe that there won't be some restriction or ordinance or something t...

Re: CCR

There's a whole lot of science out there regarding scrubber duration. It's one area that I'm super-duper conservative about. C02 scares the crap out of me. The meg axial, which I dive, is officially rated for 3 hours in cold water, but most guys I know will take it to 4, which is probably fine- but ...
