Re: Drysuit, Heavy Duty, Men's Large $200

Holy Cow. If it's in the condition you represent that's a really good deal to the right person. nearly unbeatable. Those are rugged suits. I will attest to 60south's claim on condition for gear. Recently got a BCD from him in excellent shape. I'm a little jealous this suit isn't just a wee bit tall...

Re: My Diving Accident End of June

May your recovery be complete. Thank you for sharing this information. Question: Did they narrow down a source of the fungus/the type of fungus? All the best to ya during your surface interval.

Re: Water Temperatures Past 45 Months

johndo88- email sent. Thank you! I am honestly surprised to see the data get up in the mid 50's; I knew it got into the 50's but wasn't expecting 55/56. WARNING- I geek out below on data for a second. Read if you wanna geek out a bit. :popcorn: Since this is similar depth records across the whole da...

Re: Water Temperatures Past 45 Months

That's a pretty solid seasonal plot. Nice work. How does it compare to historical data? Presuming this is aggregate data (pooled 4 yr data), how does it trend as a 4 yr plot? Undulations fairly similar? were you seeing fairly similar highs/lows over the time? (sorry to get data nerd...) If I teach a...

Re: Bottles on Beach

May I recommend a sign? though I have not seen one recently (as a kid I have), I imagine there are other non-divers that may walk off with it thinking it lost. Did you have this happen!? Something like, "This SCUBA tank is not lost, Please do not move it for my safety. Thank you. -Your name" I'm alw...

Re: Hey everyone!

Hi Peter. Welcome to greater Sea-town. I'm curious- temporary stay (2-3yrs) = Grad School? Diving here is super. There was a post by Bandito Charters on the board a day or so ago to dive in the Tacoma area. I hear good things about them. (not affiliated nor used their services)

cheers!

Re: IST Ear cover mask- Water in ear help.

Thanks YellowEye and Fmerkel. Thanks for the recipe for "Ear beer". I've seen it on the board a few times and hadn't encountered the ingredients. I'll have to give it a try. (Wife may not be a fan unless it is a spray, not fill ear canal) When I was a comp. swimmer we did something similar for swimm...

Hey Chigger. Welcome to the board. Like you, I'm getting the itch to dive local again and have been trying to hit the beach. I'm rusty, your rusty... lets go knock the rust off!? I hear the TH TH TH dives are a blast!

Re: IST Ear cover mask- Water in ear help.

Thanks ScubaJess and fmerkel! I think a combination method may be the trick. Gunna have to drop some $$ and give things a try I guess. I'll update once she's trialed. ScubaJess- bummer on the ear infections. Glad you found a solution that helps you keep in the water ad libitum. (FYI- I'm a scientist...

IST Ear cover mask- Water in ear help.

Hello all- I am wedded to a non-diver who is averse to having water in her ears. She has indicated interest in diving IF there were a way to minimize/ eliminate water in the ear. She enjoys snorkeling but mostly stays at the surface because of the 'water in ear' feeling. I'm a fish. She's tried vari...

Re: Need New Gear

Honestly, I don't think I have ever seen a camo wetsuit on the rack anywhere in Puget Sound area. That's not to say they don't exist, but you may have to do some work with your phone to find one. Try the coastal shops (Westport, Ocean Shores, Sequim, Port Angeles, Anacortes, Sekiu, Bellingham, etc.)...

Re: Need New Gear

I've seen some gear hanging on the wall at Lighthouse dive-(Lynnwood/Seattle). I recall Underwater Sports having small selection as well. I can ping my cuz to see where he gets his stuff. Not to many options for spear fishing around here, unless you go to the coast or up to BC. Otherwise, the interw...

What size is your BCD? I've got a chest size 46-48" (think L/XL T-shirt). Would you're BCD fit me?

Thanks! Good to be looking to make bubbles again. I live in the N end, so that looks more feasible. I will keep my eyes peeled.
