Re: Neck Seal Replacement

Give Hoodsport n Dive a call to find out how quickly they can do a neck seal.
They sell BARE drysuits.
Either store, Hoodsport or Tumwater.

Re: Oceanic Datapro plus 2.1

Yes, I have read that. Thank you.

Would like to find a way to have it always show 'time remaining until going into deco'.

Oceanic Datapro plus 2.1

oceanic datamax pro plus 2.1, how do you make the display show 'Time Remaining before reaching the No Decompression limit?'

Display shows air time remaining based upon the current consumption rate or it will show deco time IF YOU go into deco.

Here is a multimedia from a couple dives at Sund Rock, north & south walls on June 19 & 20.

Marine life looks good except for multiple arm sea stars.

Re: Help US help Washington Scuba Alliance!

The Yakima Dive Club, which funded the KVI Tower buoy has just prepared a letter of support to send to the Jefferson County Commissioners.
Would it be beneficial to do so still?

Nice. New-used video works great.

Sure hope a lot of those little crabs grow into big male crabs around the first week of July.

MZ and I arrived about 6 PM with the nice blue sky and 60 degree topside temperature. Splashed into the calm waters and headed down the line to the C-boat. Water temperature was about 49. Viz was about 5 feet down to 50 fsw, then became a slightly fuzzy 10-15 feet. Saw one nice cluster of squid eggs...

Sund Rock February 21, 2014

Sund Rock North Wall: A few pictures and video clips, fairly nice viz too.
Large number of rock fish, seemed to be quite friendly and curious.

Finally found all three anchors near the skiff which is located directly in front of the parking lot at about 25-30 fsw.

About 4 minutes.
