Re: Clean up a dive site ?

When I take my kids to the lake, I snorkel around and pickup trash under water beyond the swim zone. Kids like to see what I bring up and claim the treasure! (frisbees, dive...

Re: Dramatic Change at the Richmond Beach Saltwater Park

As NOT completely acute to the beaches conditions annually: I grew up going to Richmond beach years on end. I recall years where there was little eel grass and others where it was thick and coated the beach with each wave, tangling around my feet along with the broad coverage of seaweed, brown kelp ...

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: 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...
