Re: Diver missing at Mukilteo Lighthouse park

For those that remember Uncle Pug on SB, he wrote something that has stuck with my through my years of diving here. I don't recall the exact quote, but basically, "Get to the surface and float. With the currents and boat traffic in Puget Sound, sooner or later you are going to hit shore or get...

Re: Diver missing at Mukilteo Lighthouse park

Rick I'm guessing you are reading posts from the same person I am on FB. Sounds like they went in a the T-dock, survivor surfaced at the lighthouse park. That a long ways. Yeah man that is a LONG ways. Newer divers always remember, it is better to simply be floating somewhere, rather than stay down...

Re: Diver missing at Mukilteo Lighthouse park

Someone posted that the two divers were inexperienced. They went in 5 minutes before the poster. Poster said viz was really bad and current was ripping. The diver that made it surfaced near boat launch and he was out of air. Doesnt look promising. I really feel for the survivor, that is going to be ...

Re: Diver missing at Mukilteo Lighthouse park

I will, (and have!) done the T-dock at just about any current, but honestly today's exchange would have me thinking about the lake, and definitely keep me off the lighthouse side even with a scooter. Not seeing any updates other than they continue to search..... Yeah I I tried other stories and som...

Re: Diver missing at Mukilteo Lighthouse park

my mark is the time of morning, in terms of 14+ foot exchange. That sight is pretty current sensitive so really would have been a bad time to be in the water.

Why is it that they don't come and find the true salty divers of this region ? If you're going to do a write-up then find the divers in the area that have been diving here for over 30 years These anger you? What does it matter who they write about? The important thing is that they are writing about...

Re: Halloween Weekend?

What about the high-tide slacks in the early afternoon with a completely manageable ebb?

If you can get to site 1pm and try and hit the 2ish slack I think that would be certainly do-able.
