Re: The Bottle Thread

Well, something a little different today from Port Townsend. Live ammunition, circa WW I? And a few older bottles, the two on the right are probably from the 1890's. bottles200314a1.png bottles200314b1.png Ammo looks to be a stripper clip for an M1 Garand (WW2). Possible for older rifle, but would ...

Re: DIW access

Growing up, going to my grandpa's cabin on Camano Island, we'd often have to clear the logs from the driveway ramp to the beach and the bulkhead. As residents on the beach were not impressed with chainsaws, we would grab the peevees from the shed and roll them up the driveway to dry and would proces...

Trashure Diving in a lake

So back about a month ago I went for a dip in a local lake to, again, clean up trash. Had to call the PD about my find. Also did a favor for a fisherman. The dive itself was good and cool. Max depth 20-ish feet. By the time I was done "Up" was the way the bubbles went. You'll see how dark it gets st...

Re: Did you lose your gun?

Police will run it, but otherwise it's finders keepers. Probably not worth getting it smithed. What's the brand? Looks like a .32 or .38Auto

Cool article Norris. Anyone up for a lobster dive? (never thought I would EVER say that one in this area of the US) I'm game for an invasive species hunt! Its sort of whimsical! Kinda like a snipe hunt. When we were kids my parents would make us run around at night with a trash bag, near the sand du...

Re: Vintage Dive Gear-Help (opinions)

Ya. that thought has occurred to me- off load the lot. Condition is good to excellent on all of it and the techs have parts to get regs working. The open system would make a good paper weight on desk! Gathering there are no vintage mask collectors here, so I'll give them to my 'connection' to put on...

Vintage Dive Gear-Help (opinions)

I've had a few vintage dive masks fall into my possession: 1. Sears Compensazione (Made in Italy) 2. Swimmaster Wide view (has a neoprene face seal) 3. Nemrod Denia I don't need the clutter. While they certainly are cool, they aren't in the best condition (some holes in the nose pocket of the Nemrod...

Welcome aboard! I'm interested in doing some 'low barrier' dives. I'm shaking the rust off and did my refresher a month-ish ago and have done a few dives since.

Re: 40cf bare al 02 bottle

I have BillZ sentiment as well, I'm interested, but have other "hidden fees" (aka children) that are cost prohibitive at the moment. My 6yo wants to dive and an AL40 would be an awesome "kid" bottle when he starts. My 8yo is considering the idea, but the best is my 12yo who says, "ugh... whatever. N...

Re: First Time Cold-Water Diver Checking In Here

Had some college buddies from Boston, good dudes. Only tropical reef we have around here is in the aquarium! However, we've got the best cold water reefs (IMO) to be found! Don't take my word for it. Cruise the pic posts of some very talented peeps on this forum.
