Re: Anyone want to dive over the Thanksgiving weekend?

Yes I would live to have a buddy. I don't have one at this point. If the gas planning is an issue I can rent a 100 and lend you a 130 for this dive. Let me know if your up for it. I will be stopping at lighthouse in the next 20 minutes and filling tanks.

Re: Anyone want to dive over the Thanksgiving weekend?

Yes I have been there once before and can navigate back just fine. We will have to do a dive plan and see if you want to go there or not.

Sorry to flake out on you but I just found out at 5 this evening that I have to be at work on Friday. With any luck at all I will have Saturday and Sunday off and can arrange another dive. Sorry.

Re: tank valve adapter

If your only going to be using it at 150 PSI why not just weld a pipe coupling the size of your choice to the neck? I have welded plenty of hydraulic lines used at 2500 psi. If you don't weld I am sure you have a friend that does. Just make sure who ever does it knows what they are doing. Grind all ...

Drysuit repair

I have searched a few different headings and can't find the info I am looking for. On Monday a wayward scuba rig poked four small holes in my DUI Flex Extreme. This suit is a polyester / butyl rubber / polyester trilam. They are actually small tears about 1/8" long caused by blunt force trauma....

Re: Post-Season Crab Pot Pull?

Recovering lost gear for people would be cool but if your worried about the pots killing crab the game regs require a section of cotton line that will rot out and open the mesh of the pot thus releasing any crab still in it.

Re: Showing off Driftwood

Thank you for being such a good tour guide! I had a great time looking around and seeing what was there. After salmon season closes we should go on another dive to collect the hundreds of buzz bombs that will surely be all over the bottom! It was great diving with you again and can't wait till the n...

Re: What cylinder do you dive, and why?

Make a few dives and see how you do. As others have said, if your new and your air consumption is high, go big! I own two LP85's and two AL80's and dive a dry suit. Some time around 54 dives my consumption really came down. On a recent dive with Blaiz and Coulterboy, at the end of the dive I had th...

Re: I want to dive this weekend...

I was thinking about being in the water about 14:00 to make sure the flood has started and leave you plenty of time to head south for more diving. My last dive at Muk two weeks ago was in the middle of a 13 foot flood and once past 40 feet we really didn't experience any current. Sounds crazy I know...
