Referring to what? If you are talking about my rig, it was not expensive at all but then again I did get a good deal on it.

Re: Tech BC??

I tried the DUI weight and trim harness too. I ended going with a weight integrated BP&W. Not saying there is anything wrong the DUI, it just didn't work so well for me. I hope it works better for you than it did for me. AS for my BP&W, I love that it is weight integrated, my buoyancy and t...

Nah...it's not "over-compensation". I own a 24' travel trailer that I tow in the summer and sometimes in the winter so that's why I have an F250 and want to go to an F350. The F350 will be for my 5th wheel. :supz:

Welcome to NWDC...you are joining up with the right crew here. We are used to low viz and low temps too. I must admit I am a bit jealous of you, I am trying to talk my wife into relocating from Portland to somewhere outside of Seattle so that we can dive more. Lot's of good folks up there to get in...

Re: Input Regarding Dive Lights Requested

I have not had the opportunity to check out Dusty's lights but everyone says good things about them. At this point in the game I have a DRIS 1K light and love it. Light weight, strong light and the batteries last me for several dives. Good luck which ever route you go.

Re: Getting in shape for diving and for life.

I am guilty too. I am about 45 - 50 lbs overweight from sitting around doing nothing. My wife and I are trying to get the mindset that getting back into shape is a good thing. My doc says I need to do a sleep study, he thinks part of my lack of energy and drive to get up and move is Sleep Apnea. I ...

Re: Oil in Hood Canal?

Not to sound out of line but does that mean that diving Sund Rock, Sunrise and Octopus Hole would be okay? Danee and I are planning on coming up for our tenth wedding anniversary this month for a few days. We were possibly going to go to Edmonds also.

Re: go pros

One other thing to keep in mind. My setup was very floaty before I set it up to open one end cap to put water inside. After filling it with water it sinks like a rock. Before I made my handle I would use the head band for it. The only problem there is that if it falls off you might not know it so I...
