I am very interested, but at 6ft 180lb, I'm a little worried about the fit. Where would you say it's short on you?
It's short on the inseam. Torso is plenty long.

Holy Cow. If it's in the condition you represent that's a really good deal to the right person. nearly unbeatable. Those are rugged suits.
It's indestructible. The valves and cuff rings alone are worth the price. I just need to make some space...

Also listed on Craigslist for more.

Drysuit, Heavy Duty, Men's Large $200

This is a Viking ProAm 1050 drysuit, size Large. Boot size is maybe size 11-12. It's heavy duty, really heavy duty . I bought it as a spare suit from a fire department but decided it's a tad bit too short for me (I'm 5'11", 220lbs). Anyway... It needed a new zipper, so I used it as a practice drysui...

Re: Old Diver, New Area

Welcome to the board!

Go dry. Sooner or later you'll get too cold in a wetsuit and decide to get a drysuit. Might as well just do it from the start. :-)

Where to go on my next dive trip???

NWDC hive mind! I need your ideas. I'm starting to think about my next big international dive trip. Here's the thing... I recently got back from Thailand, which was nice enough, but all the diving was follow-the-divemaster style, and crowded. I cannot take any more of that! I'd like to find someplac...

Diving Townsend Bay yesterday, I was very pleased to see three young sunflower stars (Pycnopodia). No really big adults, but these smaller ones looked healthy.

Molded but with an applied neck... Probably 1890's - 1910's era, rough guess. Hard to say definitively without embossing.

Great photos! I just returned from diving the Similans, Richelieu, and Koh Phi Phi last week with the Manta 8 liveaboard; you beat me to the Thailand review! Sadly, my review is not so positive.

Re: The Bottle Thread

OK, not a bottle, but it is an un-damaged coffee cup, no cracks, no chips,found over the weekend in the silt at about 100'. As far as I can tell, this is the old ASC logo, which seems to have disappeared from 1927 - 1931 when the new logo showed up. Ah, now that could be put back in service! Beauty.
