Re: Hollis F2 fins

The reason I was interested in the F2's, other than trying a blade fin, was I heard they were lighter and more buoyant than my Tusa Extremes. That is true. Today I did more or less the same dive with the Tusas. I could pivot around much better and my legs didn't cramp as much even though we did a mu...

Hollis F2 fins

Just did the first dive of our vacation in Mexico. I bought a pair of Hollis F2's to try in place of my Tusa split fins. Did an easy shallow shore dive for an hour plus. It will be hard for me to try them again. They felt like boards. Hard to move. not much propulsion. Cramped my legs. Yuk! I'm sure...

Re: Cell Phone Service at Dive Spots

We live in an area with poor coverage and most people end up with At&T. When we go to dive spots we almost always have coverage. All across the US we almost always have coverage. In Mexico we have coverage. Not talking about cost. Not talking about service. Just the ability to make and receive a...

Hi, I'm from the dry side of Washington and am currently suffering in Mexico below Cancun but if you don't get a taker I'd trade.

Cozumel Dentist

Yesterday morning I was eating a piece of that good toast with all the seeds in it and felt something bad. Split a tooth. My dentist got me in and pulled it for $195. Told me a bridge is going to cost $3000, more or less, and maybe more. We will be in Coz in January and February and wonder if anybod...

Re: Faber tanks?

Pretty smart to run things by Northwest Dive Club to see if any red flags come up. Like the 3180 Fabers. With the + rating they are about the same pressure as the 3442 tanks but as Captn Jack says they are terribly heavy things. I did one dive with mine and didn't like the way it rocked around on my...

Re: Drysuit weighting

You will not hear any hissing and the leaks may make only the tiniest bubbles, slowly and very hard to see. It doesn't take much of a hole to give you a wet arm or chest. I'm speaking from personal experience here.

Re: Drysuit weighting

Put plastic drinking cups in the wrist seals and a gallon pitcher in the neck seal, blow it up and spray it with soapy water. Sometimes the inflator valve or exhaust valve are not attached tightly enough. I've found a little silicone grease, not cement, on the surfaces lets them tighten down nicely ...
