Keystone Sunday the 28th?

Just double checking with folks who are more familiar with Keystone- is Sunday AM a good time to dive that site? It looks like minimal current between slacks of 9:30 to 12:30?

Re: Sixgill sightings: database?

Will email Jeff C at the Aquarium to ask if they have analyzed their data already and if it can be shared with recreational divers to increase our likelihood of a Six gill sighting.

Re: diving in current

Cool video of the Puget Sound model! And thank you all for the excellent advice! I suspect my kit is still not balanced perfectly-I've been doing fine thus far but perhaps a slightly more challenging situation highlighted the imbalance. And I also suspect that my body did become a sail, so I'll try ...

Re: Sixgill sightings: database?

howdy, I emailed Scott Lundy and he's no longer maintaining his Six Gill Database. (understandable since he's a busy surgical resident.) I'm still interested in trying to understand their behavior, so I'd like to start a database myself. First, is there anyone with programming experience on this sit...

Re: diving in current

thanks, Gdog. I will try to mimic a crab during my ascent next time I'm in strong current. what I couldn't figure out was how to recover myself once I started tumbling around since there was no structure for me to hang onto. I felt like I was doing this! m (I had gone to TTN with a more experienced ...

diving in current

Hello, I was at Three Tree North yesterday and got caught in highly undesirable current during flood tide. at 60-80ft, the current was minimal but as we ascended to ~30ft, all of a sudden I got caught in current where I ended up getting rolled around. No matter what I did, I couldn't stay prone. I t...

Sixgill sightings: database?

Hello, Just wondering if anyone has tried to understand the behavior of these elusive creatures. I know the Seattle Aquarium published a paper based on their research a few years back on their biting/tear behavior using bait station data. What I would like to know is if there is a pattern to the sig...

Re: Maui

Last night on Maui and had to share my dive report from my week! 5 dives total: 2 boat dives with Extended Horizons to Lana’i and 3 shore dives. Boat dives: I chose Extended Horizons because their boat is smaller and carries fewer divers. (I don’t like being crowded.) because of winds and swells, ra...

Late joinee! I will bring nuts and cups. Will need a buddy too since my usual one is sick,

Argh,
Got on freeway and realized no dive hood. We just moved houses so I spent 20 minutes tearing apart boxes and bags but still no hoodie. Alas, I will miss out.

Re: Dry glove system with O rings

I love having dry hands!!!! Gdog was right- it's a definite improvement in my diving comfort having dry gloves. Additionally, I've regained dexterity in my fingers so I can actually don/doff equipment independently. (Before I always struggled with getting my own gloves/ fins on.) Kubi was pricey but...

Howdy, A little help please! I'd like to dive Keystone Jetty and based on the current table downloaded from NOAA and the corrections from Fischnaller's book, it looks like slack current at Keystone should occur: Slack before ebb: 10:07am Slack before flood 4:17pm Did I figure this out correctly?

Re: Dry glove system with O rings

FYI: I decided on getting the Kubi system after being able to see it in person at Hoodsport Sport n Dive after Saturday's club dive. My engineer husband approved the durable aluminum ring construction over plastic. I decided on it because the rings come in different sizes. I didn't know the diameter...

Dry glove system with O rings

Hello, A few questions abou dry glove systems: 1) does the ring system cause latex wrist seals to deteriorate faster? How often is the latex wrist seal replaced? 2) any thoughts on Ultima (old diving concept as far as I can tell) vs Rolock? Both are cheaper than Kubi. I have really small hands- size...
