Re: Tanks Stolen 6/8/09 Octopus Hole

Kirby, if you will contact the Dive shops, they should have copies of the VCI/VIP information on the tanks. If you would like to post those serial numbers here (or at least send those numbers and tank descriptions to the local dive shops) it might help someone find and recover those tanks, or keep o...

Re: Good deal for Dual?

Hmmm, come on down to the Edmonds UW Park for a work dive. You will find many of us use a similar set up. A set of old 72 twins with an old style manifold is good servicable gear for what we do. Hydro, tumble and vip the tanks, use the bands, put a wing under the hard plastic backplate, and use them...

Re: NW Wreck Dives book now available!

Excellent Book Scott - my compliments!
Scott came to our diveclub meeting last night and spoke about his book. I bought 2 copies, one for me and one as a gift. It's great I've been waiting for a good reference to come along on Puget Sound wrecks. It's well written and well researched.

Re: how to package a scuba tank for shipping?

I would hesitate to ship a bare tank. Scratches, gouges and dings can cause your tank to be rejected at it's next VCI or Hydro. Check with your LDS for a spare box.
