Re: Craigslist deals

I've started posting my own stuff, the gear I used to pass GUE Fundies. There's a whole treasure box and assortment of steel tanks I haven't gotten out of storage to inventory yet. I'll make a detailed post later BP/W, long hose reg set, lights, lead, lift bag & SMBs, etc. https://seattle.craigs...

Re: Local drysuit alteration/repair

It's contact cement, not rocket science. Have you thought about the DIY option? Learning to do my own drysuit maintenance really improved my life.

Re: Search for missing diver at Cove II

I'm pretty certain she didn't make it, I can't find any updated public information though. Our water isn't cold enough for cold water drowning to be survivable.

There's a Seattle Times story posted now but it has major inaccuracies (patient was not flown to Harborview she went on Medic 32) so I don't know if any other information in it can be trusted.

Seattle Fire is currently searching for a missing student at Cove II. I hope it is just poorly handled buddy separation but it may be worse.

That's going to be a better option for you. I'm keeping a pair of those tanks (as singles) but the OMS valves they came with were easily damaged by impacts, I still need to replace one of them.
