Re: Bizarre encounters with Steller Sea Lion at Possession Pt Pk

Apr 26, 2015 Possession Ferry: I was on top of the ferry when this guy came up over the side about 20 feet away. It made a beeline for me and didn't stop until we were nose to nose and it was looking into my mask. It swam off when I reached to push it away. I don't know why I thought I could or shou...

Re: Cove2 & Edmonds Oil Dock

Look for a big GPO inside the steel piling tubes (concrete cover with wire handle) or deep end of log/piling at about 85 FSW.

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. I've done very little video and no video light. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FU_1DJlyjD4 https://www.youtub...

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...
