Re: Another week another gruesome find

And yes, Koos, you do owe me a yummy coconut drink! Maybe a lava flow. Yum. :-) Since you've caused so much drama about this whole thing. :-) And cuz the PD called me at 7am! ugh. You mean you disturbed a "place of internment," recovered the remains, and called the police before meeting t...

Re: FOUND: Hollis fin at Zee's reef

Did you leave it in place and notify the police? It could be an indication of a crime scene. :rofl:

Re: OMS Slipstream XL

I've got a pair that have spring straps on them, and I am thinking I may just sell them. I'm in the exact opposite position - my feet require XXL whether warm-water or cold. They're my wife's fins, but I'm sure when she's ready to get back in the water I'll be able to borrow a pair.

Re: Another week another gruesome find

As someone who does have a bit of background in law enforcement, I still disagree. The authorities are likely not going to pay any mind to the report and human cremains found underwater are not an indication of a crime, other than littering on DNR land. But, I'm ok with disagreeing - it's not person...

Re: Another week another gruesome find

Eh, finding bodies in the water would not be the first clue the police would get regarding someone doing something with poor intentions. I think it's a coincidence. People especially wouldn't TAG IT with any identifying marks/tags/codes/whatever if something was up. I think the weather is improving ...

Well back from yet another week in Port Townsend. Lots of nudies as well as the other critters and an unpleasant surprise.

Re: Strangest equipment failure ever!

I think we simply have a failure to communicate. My fault for not being specific regarding the use of "empty" regarding diving cylinders. When we say empty we mean any pressure below several hundred psi. So when I say a tank is empty I mean there is less than 500psi remaining because it's...

Re: Strangest equipment failure ever!

Your tank valve is being haunted by Betty Lou. She hated HP ports and never moved on past the J-valve. If you recorded the sound it makes when you crack the valve, tune the pitch lower and slow it down to 50% of real-time, you'd hear her dreadful warning... "Pfffffft!!" <shutter> Damn you ...

Re: Geocache at Alki? 50feet?

What I don't agree with is having to see someone's cross in the middle of the cove, and now there is another structure nearby that serves a similar purpose. It's a recreation area. If someone were to start putting makeshift graves and memorials in the middle of a park on land, they'd get removed qu...
