Re: Discovery Bay boat trip again

Count me in. I can take 2 or 3 divers depending on weather conditions. I am not diving but I am happy to let people fall of the boat as long as they come back.

ORDiver and I have been running our boats out off of the Oregon Coast the last few months.

Re: Marine surveyor

A good source for a list of surveyors is the insurance company you plan to use. If you happen to be wanting to insure the boat. I have always been told never to just use the surveyor the broker recommends because most of the time you have competing interest. However looking for people on both the br...

Re: Diving "Northwest Shore Dives" in the San Juans

As Richard points out, Fischnaller did these dives back in the days when single Steel 72's and AL80's were the norm I've used single HP80's on several of them and don't remember the hikes being memorable. I giggle at the thought of doubles on them tho.. Great report!!! What single steel 72's are no...

Re: Need OR dive advice on where to go when I'm out there...

Your best bet is to contact Eugene Skin Divers in Eugene. Clear Lake is a good dive however Clear Lake is only 37 to 39 degrees even in summer. Clear Lake is also an altitude dive. Florence North Jetty or Woahink Lake may also be good options. I do not think the National Park Service is currently is...

Re: Neatarts Boat Ramp East Wall -Tillamook, OR

In Oregon you are allowed to use the boat ramps as entry and exit points so long as you do not impead the launching of boats . We dived there in Decemeber (2013) - The County Deputy we were with, said 'no divers on the boat ramp'. Sorry my 2 cents. And a bump Geoff in Oregon There have been alterca...

Re: Clear Lake - July 12th

There is a resort run buy Linn County Oregon. There is a forest service camp ground "Cold Water Cove Campground" at the southeast end of the lake. There is also the Belknap Hot Springs 15 miles down the road. the Hot springs is a nice place to hangout after diving in 39 degree water.

Re: Underwater GPS

The position information is collected at the surface so it is not actually the same as the underwater position. You can do the same by towing a gps on the surface time synced to a camera carried by the diver.
