Uh no thanks, note to self, never never never move to the mid west.

I'd go with the gun, pole spears are a major pain.

I'm happier than hell with my UK light Cannon, way cheaper than a can light.

Yeah I rinse all of my stuff off in the tub and then hang some of it from the shower rod, which I'm in the process of modifying in order to hold MUCH more weight.

Blakely Island

Has anybody dove the walls around Blakely Island? My buddy and I dove Rosario wall last Sat. and on the way back we started to wonder about how diving some the walls would be. We are thinking about doing a live boat dive off the west side of this ( little) island that's right beside Blakely. :calvin:

Re: Fourth Element SubXero - anyone here dive one?

I wear the Artics year round, only in the summer they can get a little too warm. Course I'm wearing them under an Apollo neoprene suit so I do have a bit more insulation than a shell suit.

Re: Humbolt off Sekui

I find it ponderable that what we all are finding so unusual might very well have been commonplace back in the days of 150 lb salmonm, 500 lb octo's and basking sharks ... go back 100 or even just 60 years ago and you probably wouldn't even recognize the sound under water. Could it be that the cons...
