Re: WTB Used float for teaching

I have one that you can have, but I will need to check when I get home to make sure it still inflates. It's not the greatest but you're welcome to have it for free.

WTB: wrist computer or bottom timer

Hello fellow divers! One of my nieces got certified over the summer (yay!!) and I sent her my backup gear plus some new stuff to help defray the cost. I am looking to replace the computer I sent her with an inexpensive option. Brand doesn't matter as I keep it in gauge mode. Let me know if you have ...

Re: Truth Aquatics Conception Boat Fire Tragedy

Interesting to see that the engine compartment didn't appear to be the source, and it sounds like the crew did all they could.

The only two exits for the berths went into the same area (not news, I know), but that will be something I look for the next time I'm on such a boat.

Re: Truth Aquatics Conception Boat Fire Tragedy

I'm not surprised by the latest legal proceedings, but that doesn't negate my outrage. Our house burned down when I was a child, and even as young as I was I remember my parents talking about the fights with the insurance company. Fortunately nobody was hurt, but we did lose everything, and my paren...

JFC. They should be shopping for caskets, urns, and flowers - which are brutal enough tasks when you lose a loved one - without having to shop for an attorney too.

Re: Regulator service

You may have a free or reduced service option with the shop you bought it with, so I would check with them first. Otherwise I'd send it to Don Peterson at Octopus Gardens.

Re: Truth Aquatics/Conception Boat Fire Tragedy

What an awful tragedy. I am hopeful that they will find more survivors, and my heart goes out to the ones who have made it, and to the loved ones of those that didn't.
