Re: In Memoriam: Lynne Flaherty (LCF, TSandM)

Lynne, you will be missed.

Peter, you have my deepest sympathies.

To all, be safe and hug your loved ones. I hate these kind of reminders that life is too damn short.

And thanks Kelly - I am very familiar with Tacoma Scuba's wonderful Nitrox punch card. A sweet deal! In fact I have one in my wallet. :nutty:

Re: Tire Gas and Bottle Hunting Are Killing Me

People still dive on plain air?!? I used to do 2 dives on air and then need a nap. I got certified for Nitrox and never looked back.

And Tom, the Tacoma Scuba Nitrox punch card is so worth it -- only $7 a fill.

Re: New Book on the Lake Crescent Warren Case

With the publishing of this book I suspect that there will once again be a great deal of interest in diving the "Warren Car" by a new generation of divers. Three things: 1) It is not, repeat NOT, at recreational depths. This is a dive for trained Tech divers using appropriate gasses and e...

Re: History of octo protected status in Hood Canal? NHZ

Doesn't a closed fishery mean they can't be harvested? Or am I not understanding the term correctly?

History of octo protected status in Hood Canal? NHZ

Does anyone know WHY the GPO is completely protected in Hood Canal? Is it because of the low oxygen events?

Please note that I've labeled this as No Hijack Zone please. Thank you!

Re: Pony bottle mounting

I sling my AL30 using standard stage rigging and attach my camera to my right shoulder D-ring. Getting in and out (trying to use handrails, putting on fins, etc) can sometimes be a bit of a CF, but I haven't had an issue once in the water and in trim.
