Re: White's Fusion Bullet

Hey everyone. I am in the market for a White's Fusion suit and I am torn between the Bullet and the Tech suit. I have read where some think the Bullet is too thick and takes too long to dry along with being heavy. Also, I have read that the Bullet limits your mobility more than the Tech or the Spor...

Re: WDFW GPO update: Seacrest Cove 1,2,3 now included in opt

I think that the easiest way to resolve this would be to close the very popular dive sites to any harvest by divers. Never mind the hook and line guys. I'm guessing that about 90% or more of us can agree that there shouldn't be any hunting going on in places like Redondo, Les Davis or Cove 2. As fo...

Re: How many Cu ft. for a drysuit bottle?

I see people with those LP 8cuft tanks for argon, they just look a little too big for me. I am a big fan of my 6cuft tanks for argon, I'm usually around 3/4 dives, but I use a 13cuft tank for purging my suit first, that one lasts most of the winter. 8 CF = easy to fill, 2015 working pressure.

We will keep an eye out for it. Did not see it North Wall area Sunday. Scootering entire MCA on Wednesday, might get lucky.

Continued down and hit a large set of boulders at about 155'. Much to my surprise and delight this individual was among th...

If I hadn't thought that budget cuts put an end to this nonsense, I would have made this suggestion a while ago.

Found Someones Mask at Sund Rock

Hi,

While testing a dry suit yesterday (12/11) I found a nice, new looking, top end, Oceanic Mask and Snorkel. The gear was in about 5 feet of water right at the entry ramp.

It is at Hoodsport N Dive.

Re: tank straps and BP problem.

I guess if I have to go with an STA, a weighted is better, as I need to carry 10 pounds of trim weight, so a weighted STA is better. I suppose a Halcyon, or whatever..

Re: Dry suits... What do you dive?

I don't like the Bullet skin. I really don't think you gain much of anything with it, and you lose flexibility, lightness, and ease of care. The zipper isn't a problem with a backplate harness. The zipper does have a stress point where it curves over the shoulder, and that's where my first one even...
