Re: Browning Pass Hideaway

I was unaware of the lease situation.

They were working on the housing when I was there, and it was fairly good at that time. What they really needed was a boat upgrade.

Hi Gerry!

Do you pronounce your name like "Jerry" or "Gary"?

Re: BCD storage, no air, some air? full?

+1 for good rinsing. I typically give mine a super internal rinsing at the end of a week of diving (or if I know I've let sea water inside it). For storage I thoroughly drain it, squeeze the air out, and don't worry. I also agree with fmerkel regarding the inflator valves, as I have had a couple of ...

Re: Point Hudson alert

Thank you for posting that. Since the rocks that form the jetty are already there, the materials for an 'artificial' reef would appear to be at hand. I would suggest that they simply move the rocks aside (keeping them under water), rebuild the jetty, and then move them back as much as practical. I a...

You have some of the best diving in Puget Sound right at your doorstep!

I'm often in Port Townsend during the summer months, maybe we can hit the water sometime.

Steel HP 100 for casual diving.

Re: curious about SSI dive credit

IMO, it's totally optional and just for fun. Your log book is (or should be) simply for your own enjoyment. Resorts or instructors may occasionally ask to see a copy -- although this seems kind of dopey because many of us use online or electronic log books, and log entries can be forged. It isn't a ...

Re: brightness of handheld light for the sound

(https://www.divegearexpress.com/catalog/product/view/id/1670/s/dgx-600-handheld-light/category/66/) They're great for your typical daytime leisure dive in the PNW. Solid, bright, and cheap. Maybe I should get another and strap them all t...

Well that's new. And a bit worrying.

Re: Drysuit: Extra layer of clothes, how much extra lead?

> do you wear an extra layer of clothes under your undergarment? A heavy hood? If so, what do you wear and how much lead (if any) do you add Yes. Always a dry hood. Maybe 2-4 extra pounds. Extra undergarments trap air and will make you more buoyant. Adding more air to the suit will also keep you war...

Re: Looking for semi-regular dive buddy on Bainbridge

I get back to Port Townsend semi-regularly, and would be happy to do some local diving with you.

My regular buddy lives in Kingston (when he's not overseas), maybe I can hook you up. We've done Norrander's quite a lot. I need to try Agate Pass.

Re: Waterproof Drysuits for Puget Sound Diving?

Waterproof is a good brand, no worries.

That said, what's more important than the brand is how it fits you. Spend some time getting the right fit; that's better than spending $2000 twice because you didn't get the right thing the first time.

I was there a while back and it was the most amazing diving I've ever done. Also the most expensive, but worth it!
