Re: Half time show at the Mukilteo club dive. NHZ Please!

Whoa there captn, I did not mean to speculate about anything these two did or why. The only thing I mistakenly speculated about was the time it took for the buddy to surface and if it was influenced by a loss of deco obligation information. Everything else was just passing along known info or the nu...

Re: Half time show at the Mukilteo club dive. NHZ Please!

Good for you for taking action Matt! After another 30 minutes or so his partner finally surfaces after completing his deco. So this guy then omitted 30min of deco, (I'm assuming his buddy was exiting expeditiously after seeing the victim headed for the surface) and refused 02 at the surface???? I t...

Half time show at the Mukilteo club dive. NHZ Please!

As we were hungrily chowing down on Jeremy's world famous chili at the entrance to the T dock a diver surfaced about three quarters of the way to the buoy over the deep boat. No SMB was noticed before his appearance. He then spent the next few minutes flailing around on the surface in a most unnatur...

Re: Ice Diving Instructor in WA state

I believe the instructor at Orca Scuba center in Wenatchee is a PADI ice diving instructor. I wanted to take this class but no ice thick enough this winter that isn't a two hour drive. If we do have enough ice on Fish Lake it would still take a class of at least four or more to make it work.

If as a last resort you can't find a shop in Seattle that has one in stock or will bring one in for you I bought my wetsuit from Sierra Trading post. They are close out an discontinued models but still good products. Good luck!

Re: Edmonds on Saturday

What is your experience level? Edmonds requires careful gas planning, great skill at reading tide tables/current charts, and strong navigational ability. You could easily run out of gas, get ground up by a ferry, or be swept out to sea unless you really know what you're doing. I'd join, but want to...

Oh man, I had no idea Edmonds was that demanding! I guess I should stick to visiting "the man" or the Possession Point fingers. I have heard a rumor that the Maker Buoys are diving the ppf on Sunday........
