Re: New Diver at Great Hood Canal Location

I am recently open water certified and have acquired all my gear to start enjoying diving. I own a small house on Miller Creek which is part of the Holiday Beach community located on Susan Ave., a short walk to Sund Rock. I spend as many weekends there as possible but am looking for dive buddies to...

Re: Question about Sunday in the hood

There's a pretty wicked exchange at Flagpole on Sunday. A few of us were planning to dive there sometime, but we are kind of on the fence. What will the currents be like? I have never dove the south sound. Wind driven surface current can be strong at flagpole. Sundays predicted southerlies with an ...

Re: Seal Saver

I wonder why they're discontinuing it, seems like a lot of people use it (myself included). Mcnett also discontinued ankle weights about a year ago. They reversed that decision. They do seem responsive to feedback. Trident makes a similar product, bu it is much more of a liquid . This is similiar t...

I thought Id take some food to feed the wolf eels or gpo's we encounter but Im not sure of what works and how to transport it.. any ideas??... Not a good idea anywhere, but if you are diving in any of the Marine Conservation Areas, it is against the law. The Sund Rock MCA has the relevant RCW poste...

Re: scooter batteries

So I just took a scooter workshop, and now the scooter crack has taken hold. I'm thinking of buying a scooter, but it seems like, for most scooters, you'll be spending around $1300 every two years or so on a new battery. Amortized (?), put away $50/month into a savings/scuba fund, and I guess it wo...

Re: Drysuits, AGAIN

High-end dry suits are awfully nice, but they are also awfully expensive. I have a Santi suit; it was custom made, fits beautifully, and has a ton of nice little features. But I could buy two Fusions for what it costs at retail. The Fusion is a lovely suit, although I loathe and would not recommend...

Re: Dry suit versus BC buoyancy question

I see absolutely no evidence that a Weezle impairs dumping air with an upper-arm dump, though it was an open question with the old forearm dump where the pause before dumping started seemed much longer. What brands were the dump valves? I'd be willing to bet that the one where it paused was an Apek...

Sunday Rock MCA 10/25 @ 0900
Top 20 feet about 15, below that 30 +
The halocline was so pronounced at 10 feet it looked like you could bump your head on it. It was also considerably colder than the water below.

Re: Always analyze your gas!

So it brings up the question, for many newer divers, or those that just rent tanks, etc - does everyone on here analyze their gas pre-dive? Seems like that is part of the "lessons learned" here, but it doesn't seem to me that most people are analyzing their tanks before gearing up. Though...
