Re: Possession Point Fingers Access

No question that I could save the $25 if I owned a boat or a scooter. I'll have to pencil it out.

I think his daughter deserves at least a Dusty's light. You don't want to turn her off diving!

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 ...

Way back when Greg Jensen said Atlantic lobsters need a period of cold water to breed. Any comments on the eggs on this one?

Classic way that happens is someone checks your air and turns it all the way off and 1/4 turn back on, cause they never learned "Righty tighty, lefty loosy"

Re: 25 dollars for what????

Recently there is a word out about a significant fee increase for a night dive at Keystone Jetty. They supposedly upped it to 25 bucks. It still remains unclear as to 25 dollars a person? A party? Or a car? The site is amazing and a great training and photography grounds. Well, there is a warm indo...

Re: Deception Pass

Wow! This is a tough crowd! 500 dives makes you a beginner? 20 years ago 100 dives in the Northwest made me a better than average diver on a Mexican boat. I think I'm seeing more clearly what "Clicky" means.

Re: Parking at Three Tree North

Two no parking signs on the same post. Post ever so nicely cemented in. No city name in small lettering on the sign. Doesn't look like city work. But I have no idea.

Probably depends on what you want and who has it and what their price is. I don't think you will find a single best source. DRIS is a great supplier.

Re: Hyperbaric trip experience/getting bent call for insight

We use nitrox almost every dive. I don't see any disadvantage of staying away from the no deco limits. It adds some cost but not so much in the whole scheme of a vacation. Hope everything goes alright now!
