Re: Lake Union dive to find lost boat keys (any restriction?)

If I'm not mistaken, this is Seattle Police Harbor jurisdiction and there is a harbor code covering this area. Call them prior to diving.

Re: NITROX problems

I'm happy with my Oxycheq Expedition with plug-in sensor. The problem was the shop did not, and still doesn't, have an adequate flow restrictor. So for Nitrox fills I bring my own analyzer with a BC flow restrictor that I put on a first stage, plus my own pressure gage and an Ipad with a MOD algorit...

Re: Car-sized ball of squid eggs

Videos of Squid Eggs at Marina beach March 17 2015. Each time I think back on it they get bigger. But they were easily 10 feet long and split off in a Y shape. Sorry about the poor quality.

Re: How much have you spent so far?

45 years diving but here's data from last 10. $17,567, average $1850/yr for 9.5 years. That is for Rec diving with low end cameras and includes about $500/yr for air & NITROX and occasional charter boat but not travel to exotic places which goes in the vacation column of my budget book. I'm a ro...

Re: NITROX problems

36% has a MOD of 95ft (ppO2 1.4) compared to 110ft for 32% which for recreational diving is really the only concern. OHOP were you limited on what you could do with these tanks based on the shallower MOD? Yes, my plan was for max of 105 on first dive at China Wall, Blakely Rock so they were re-mixe...

I ordered an analyzer and flow restrictor. I'll put the restrictor on a spare first stage with just a BCD inflator.

Thanks for the info everyone. Please no shop guessing, I'm not going to even hint as some or all of the issues may be my own doing or missunderstanding. So what ever gas is added last is immediately and completely mixed, no shaking or rolling necessary? Not 4% error, it was off by 4.0 out of 32 or 1...

NITROX problems

I'm thinking about giving up on using NITROX because of repeated fill errors by my local shop and concern for the accuracy of the O2 monitor they provide for customer use to verify the FO2. At one point when the shop's only O2 monitor was out of service and I could not verify my tanks just filled, t...

Re: Just want some opinions

You are not the first to get snotty service from one individual at one shop.
You may receive very different service at other shops owned by the same company and from other people at the same shop.

In 45 years of diving I've had three near panics, a solo out of air ascent, an emergency buddy breathing event compounded by an open BC inflator both in the early 70's and recently a flooded mask in very strong current. It may be influenced by age and memory but the more recent flooded mask situatio...
