Re: Want: First Stage for Pony Rig

If anyone is still looking, I have a Dive Rite XT-1 Din first stage. It's about 6 months old and has only been used on my bailout bottles.

$175 gets it delivered.

Re: Looking to buy a dive computer

If you want to bump your budget up another $150, I have a spare, lightly used Petrel 2 that I am looking to sell. 650 gets it delivered to your door.

Re: Scooters. What do you have? Your likes and dislikes?

At the risk of being ostracized by the area... I would not be looking solely at the local supplier. I dove a Sierra for about 300 dives and loved it ... Until I realized there were scooters out there that don't need the batteries removed to charge them. This is a HUGE pita. I have owned 2 Magnus and...

Re: Scooter crack

As painful as it is for me to say, you will waste a Magnus in a race. But then again, my nuggets can't handle long distances in third gear. So maybe a moot point. FWIW, my buddy also has a 1200 and recently had an issue with it not firing up. He spoke with Jon Nellia and apparently the batteries hav...

Re: Hat (Gedney) Island Barges have been removed.

Me still thinks that if all this "awwwww damn, we lost another dive site" hubbub is based upon a few passes with a side scan sonar... The person who actually goes and dives it might be a bit surprised.

Just out of curiosity, has anyone put fins to water and dove here since these things were removed as evidence of sidescan?


Or is it being accepted as gospel based on sidescan? :-)

Re: Haskel Booster Rebuild

Now you are saying things we can agree on

I am a cheap ass

I use my compressor to drain helium

Although I did recently upgrade to the HI5. Sold my HI3.


If you ever wanna upgrade, let me know. I'll even throw in a few sorb pellets.

Re: Haskel Booster Rebuild

If you use a big enough trash bag, you can drain the bottle down to empty 14.7 psi to you Richard! Lol You do have to watch it and adjust the supply reg flow accordingly. Reality is that at a certain supply pressure my helium regulator can't dump it into the mixing stick (which has 100% in it) fast...

Can someone do me a huge favor and hit Curtis in the head with a lead weight while he is in the water.

I don't want him to forget about me.

I'll let him tell the story.

Re: Florida and Grand Bahama in June

There is some good shore diving in Lauderdale by the Sea (Datura Avenue) and about 8 mikes further south in Dania Beach (SeaTech Ledges). Both have pay parking and require dive flags. Sea Tech has some awesome ledges out just past the pier. There is a Meetup group called "Gold Coast Scuba"...

I think there's something really important that we can learn from this shark catch.
