Re: ThThTh Back to School Edition

What a great get together this week! Big turnout, great water conditions, and lots of life out and about at Redondo. I was very happy to see a larger number of sea stars, healthy, and even some Sunflowers! Here are a few of my pics from the evening: Redondo Pier September 05, 2019 (74 of 108).JPG Re...

Re: Truth Aquatics Conception Boat Fire Tragedy

Speaking of lithium battery chargers: I've been reading up on this and found that Drones use a particularly volatile battery type called Lithium Polymer. This is different from the Lithium Ion batteries we find in Lights and Cameras. It seems that they are so volatile that there are Dozens of produc...

Re: Regulator service

A few ways to make an informed decision: 1) Buy an IP Gauge for $10 to see if your 1st stage has an IP in spec and stable or has drifted out of spec (should be 130-140 psi) 2) Remove the 2nd Stage purge cover and see if everything is clean without debris or scaled on junk 3) Put the 2nd Stage pressu...

ThThTh 8/15

We had another great turnout this week at ThThTh in Redondo. We had at least 10 divers, maybe a couple more? The weather was great and the vis was a pretty good 15ft for about 30 minutes of the dive. The high tide reversed and we got a pretty dramatic thermocline and clarity of the water dropped sig...

Re: Not something I've seen...

That's pretty great! I got a pretty nice shot of one of the Amphipods in a PMH a few weeks ago.

(BTW, also getting a very low res image upload. This is under 300K locally and looks sharp. Very fuzzy in the post.)

Aha! Now I see! After Fukushima, the sea stars have been melting so that they can come together to form one giant Gojira-star!

Fear the Gojira-star!
I am more concerned about the inevitable rise of Mecha-OchreStar, the ultimate predator!

Re: Sea Stars are Back!!!!

It's been 8 years since the Fukushima radiation plume smashed into the west coast of North America. Makes sense that the sea stars would start coming back now that the radiation levels are decreasing. Fukushima has nothing to do with this topic. The measured radioactivity from Fukushima is tiny com...

Derek, Vaidhy, and I had a great dive together. Low tide at the start, rapid incoming tide at the end of the hour. Not a really strong current but it sure did stir up the Salad on the way up the beach. My camera looked like SwampThing and I spend 15 minutes picking the vegetation from the nooks, cra...
