Re: Mozaik offers all L&M Lights for 30%

I’ve owned many, many, Light and Motion lights for diving and biking. Their bike lights are the best. Their dive lights in my experience are inferior to others. Eventually the batteries will fade away and then you are looking at an expensive service charge. I’ve had my lights fail twice below 180’ b...

Re: The Bottle Thread

That WT is a well known bottle and quite collectible. It’s on my list of fantasy finds someday. If I found that bottle it probably spit out my regulator and rocket to the surface screening!!!

Re: Tank input

Great feedback. Thanks. I believe my LPs are a few pounds lighter but the bottom line is I own lp95s and I don’t own 117HPs so that’s why I like them best? (Haha). Like I said, it’s great we have so many options. A low pressure 95 is full at 2400. I usually don’t need more air than this on most dive...

Re: Tank input

It’s great we have so many options on tanks. Here is my input. I love low pressure steel tanks. If I’m doing deep tec stuff my Faber steel LP85s as doubles are my favorites. For everyday cold water dives my LP 95s work well. I fill my own stuff so I’ll pump a LP tank past its 2250 up to 3000 and now...

Re: Dry suit undergarments

The weezles are awesome. I tried one once and found it amazing. I’d try one again as they seem comfortable and affordable and toasty. I went with a fourth element 3D. It was expensive but has eliminated any need for Argon. My secret weapon and must have cold water items are the DUI 11mm hood and kub...

Light found at Ed’s Fault Discovery bay, WA

I found a dive light at Ed’s fault last weekend. It’s been down for some time and was covered in barnacles but worked when I turned it on. This amazing spot doesn’t get many divers so I’m hoping the owner can be found. It’s a big UK. Anyone missing your light??

Re: Sea star die-off

I recently did a long drift dive near Pt. Defiance and was very excited to see countless sea stars thriving between PT Defiance and Owens beach area. Over the last 5 years the numbers have gone from nearly zero to now seeing hundreds and hundreds. I’m hoping we get back to the days when these wonder...

Re: Diving as lockdown phases out

Have you driven past a Walmart or Home Depot? Divers will never be an issue to this problem.. Go diving today, tomorrow and next week. We could have a giant dive party at X-beach and have no negative impact compared to one walmart!!!! Go dive!!!

Re: Dive Insurance ....

I used the travel insurance offered through DAN and when our dive trip was cut short because of weather, I was refunded for half the dive trip including my trimix fills, hotel and other related expenses. I’m sold on trip insurance as well as DAN Dive insurance...hope none of us ever need it..

Yes. Columbia River. We recovered 3 of these balt anchors. One was 6000 pounds and two were 3000 pounders....they are for sale on eBay and CL. Would make an amazing decoration at your house or business. My wife hates them so they are not in my yard.....YET!!!

Re: "Trashure" huntin'

I had no idea how easy it is to float and remove trash until I recently invested in float bags. This 6000 pound anchor came up with very little effort. ( until we we reached the surface) There is not much you can’t float. If you do the math you will see that it takes about 1 and 1/2 tanks of air to ...

I guess evolution has worked its magic and the strong survived and now there is resistance to wasting disease?

Over the last many years I’ve been so bummed to have seen all the sea stars dying off. I’d be lucky to see 1-2 during any dive near Tacoma. Last week I saw 100s if not 1000s off Owens beach area!! It was so awesome to see one or two every few feet and more species than I know. I’ve also heard report...
