Re: The time has come

Rich, although we never dove as buddy's, but have official dove together (signaled OK to each other underwater), I will miss your reports. I will never, ever, ever forget Point Hundson and the Mola Mola which is permanently embedded in my brain. And, I will not forget when we talked on the surface a...

Very well done and perfect timing. :notworthy:
I was able to easily identify a "new to me" Silverspotted Sculpin I found last weekend.

Re: Fin/foot problem(s)

Synthetic Socks = Bingo!

Speaking from experience, with that much diving in a short period, add the synthetic socks and don't change anything else and your problem will go away and you will be a happy tropical diver. :partydance:

Re: I am looking at reels and SMB's...recommendations?

....and just in case you want one more opinion, I carry on every dive, in my dry suit pocket, a 72" Carter Personal Float with a Finger Spool that has 100+ feet of line (minus the dive flag attachment. I think it's an option and kinda goofy). Having spent a fair amount of time live boat diving ...

Being an owner of a fair number of Worthington 100's, I heard about this issue last year. Check this link out for more information and Worthington's procedure for Hydrostatic Requals. Probably wouldn’t hurt to print and attach a copy of this to each of your cylinders heading in for hydro. http://www...

Re: Another week another gruesome find

As someone who does have a bit of background in law enforcement, I still disagree. The authorities are likely not going to pay any mind to the report and human cremains found underwater are not an indication of a crime, other than littering on DNR land. But, I'm ok with disagreeing - it's not perso...

Re: What kinda fish is this?!?!?

Last Sunday I did a fun dive off "Down Time" at Rosies Ravine. After skirting the top of the deep wall I started a zig-zag pattern up slope. At ~80ft, I came across this guy. Like Janna, I have seen what I believe to be Juveniles, but I have never seen an adult until now. http://www.youtub...
