Like Hard Rock (not metal), beer, and live in Everett?

I am in a band and we are mostly hard rock. Now I know that many people on here may not be in to that type of scene but maybe some are. Heres the scoop. We have been playing bars for a long time, and are completely original. We are playing Traceys in Everett on the 14th and if we get a decent showin...

Just casting my line

Hello people, I just want to throw this out there. I am really interested in getting a BC. This is what I decided would be my first purchase. Now rest assured that I have heard the people say. "Rent, don't buy until you know what you want." Well I cannot afford that. The shop I go to costs...

Curious about gear

Is this forum ran by a shop owner? I was curious why there was not an area for people selling gear after an upgrade or something. I mean my dive budget is pretty minimal and I am saving up to get my gear. Diving in the meantime is about 100.00 a pop and that is pretty expensive. I havent been able t...

Re: Alki Accident - Please Update ME

What a shame...sigh. Anyone know if he was solo diving? Running out of air could have happened during unconsciousnesses considering the wait for help? I guess we may never know the cause.

RIP

Re: Hello

BlackWater welcome to the forums. I too am relatively new and I have to say this place has a lot to offer in terms of great information and great people.

Since day one I have felt at home...

Hopefully we will dive one day.

Re: What a disappointment!

Yes this is something that I learned only weeks ago. "Don't share your great online purchase deals with shops." I will honestly say that my dive budget is not anywhere close to (what it seems) to many of you all. Even my mask, snorkle, fins, hood and gloves were a little scoffed at as, wow...

Wanted to Share

It was cove 2 at Alki last Saturday and this was to be our 3rd and 4th open water dives. Well Sandra our instructor brought the camera and I'm glad she did. I mentioned this in another thread but wanted to show some pictures. I got to see a huge octopus on my 3rd and 4th open water dives, and I coul...

Re: I COULD BURST

BassMan thanks for the invite and I would love to take you up on that. However; I work 8-5pm mon - fri in Redmond. That would make it a night dive and I am not certified for that. I think I can do an early in early out on a Thursday given enough notice. Lets try and make that happen. By the way ever...

Re: Another Question

Definitely noted, and he was speaking generally about what he felt the class thought of PADI and I assumed it was the opinion of someone he was either learning from or with. So a safety stop is certainly recommended and good practice is what I am hearing so far. Doing shallow dives 35-45fsw even sho...

Another Question

I have a friend who is a diver and didnt take the PADI course, but took the NAUI . He brags that the course he took somewhat scoffs at PADI as a suboptimal training module. I have done some reading and it seems there are split opinions on the matter. I am currently taking PADI OW and I feel as thoug...

Thanks Alex thats good to hear. I assume it may be contingent on the price of equipment and such.

Full Face and Radio

After our first open water last Saturday my buddy and I were sitting on the rocks at cove 2 going over what we saw, did, and how great this all is. We began talking about full face masks with radios. We both agree that full voice communication would take a diving trip with a friend to a whole new le...
