Re: PC Anti-virus software -- Which one?

Microsoft has a product called security essentials I'm using on my copy of Windows 7, which works well. Yes, that is Windows 7 installed on my Macbook . . .

Re: FS: USIA Drysuit and undergarment

Not sure on bootie size, but I imagine they are proportionate to the size of the suit. Probably best thing to do is have your sister try it on.

FS: USIA Drysuit and undergarment

Posting for a friend, I saw this drysuit yesterday, it is in excellent condition, email me for pics: Looks to be older, shell suit, built in booties, almost like it has never been used. Seals are in good shape, uncut, comes with a thickish undergarment. Black with purple accents, fits a woman up to ...

Re: Crabbing Season off to a great start

I'll second the request for the recipe book. Just went out and pulled pots this morning, 3 out of 4 were crammed with crab, one, purple starfish, broken door, no crab. Sorted through and got the best to make up our limit. Already cleaned, cooked, and cooled for the weekend. I love this part of livin...

Re: No Undergarment- Options?

I know this is probably a stupid question, but can I wear a dry suit without the fancy undergarment suit? I just picked up a DUI CLX450 and wanna try it out tomorrow, but I don't have the under jammies. I don't really have the extra cash right now to go get one as they are pretty pricey from what I...

Your backup reg is freeflowing a bit, I'd bet. Turn it mouthpiece out so water pressure isn't hitting the faceplate.

Or stop being so damn anxious on the trigger.
