Re: Drysuit recomendations

Thanks Lynn, that's the kind of information I was looking for. Have you ever sent it back to have it repaired or did you fix it yourself or local? and what was the turn around? I do have the Si tec neck and wrist quick change seals so it isn't a problem to change them out at all. Hi, To answer your...

Re: Tides App for iPhone

Can anyone recommend a good tides app for the iPhone? There are several in the app store but I was hoping some of you have tried some of them before I buy one. Thanks, John TideTrac V 2.1 I have tried a bunch and this is one is very cool. I love the way you can slide the time and see the tide level...

Wayne's observations match the ORCA Buoy data. No Low DO. Healthy water column You can check the site below at at anytime for real time data. You can also use the graphs to get a rough idea of visibility, and where the halocline (salinity) is. This is also where the themocline usually is. In the win...

Re: New drysuit choices

I understand that they are an acquired taste but she may be well served by the White's Fusion suits which are less size sensitive. They just came out with a back zip model that hits the $1000 price point. I saw a Fusion One right after they came out. It is a great looking suit. The orange piping an...

Re: Warm water fins

Hello all, I recently did some warm water dives with my paddle fins *HOGS). But they were pretty heavy. Those of you who use paddles (Non Split - Scuba, Turtles or other) around here, what do you use for warm water? Might be looking to get something for warm waters, as the wife and I are heading to...

Re: Water in my ear

Since diving yesterday, it feels as if I have a little water still in my right ear. Any tips on getting rid of it? Rub your finger and thumb together just outside both ears, if you notice a loss of hearing in the "water ear" you may have a wax blockage, (or any number of things.) A walk-i...

I have to ask . . . what is it about this DC system that seems so good that you guys are willing to put up with such a complicated glove replacement procedure?

Re: Uh.....wow. 652' dive.

There are personal and business marketing aspects to extreme dives. In the late 1990's the WKPP put DIR and the Hogarthian RIg on the map with some very extreme dives. It can be said that they were doing them to protect the aquifer, and not for adventure, but having met the principles, there may hav...
