Re: In water recompression

If you are going to deco dive, you need to have O2 around. Thats a must have.

At the Marker Buoys dives, theres always an O2 kit. This isnt just for DCS, but other medical treatment until help arrives.

Re: In water recompression

Well, I once corked from 200ft with 45m of deco. I didnt die. I have quite a few friends that are sat divers, some having to run from one habitat to another. You have roughly 3-4 minutes to get out of gear and into another habitat I've been told. So rather than freak out, I took a breath, submerged ...

Re: New to Site!

You also might consider one of the local dive clubs. The Marker Buoys are probably the most active.

Diving the SL Dowell in Lake Washington

Jeff and I dove the SL Dowell yesterday. It was too dangerous to surface scoot to the buoy, and typical idiot boaters were driving with inside the buoy. So we followed the underground pipes out to around 100 and swug left and intersected the line. Viz wasnt bad until we got deeper. By the time we hi...

Re: Possession Point - Tech Dive?

Honestly, unless you want to go deep just to go deep, there aren't many shore diving options in the 150 ft range in the Puget Sound. Lobster shop wall is the only one that comes to mind. Lobster shop wall, mofo, course marker, Kirbys, day island, watermans if you get permission to use the homeowner...

Re: Possession Point - Tech Dive?

The fingers are a great Tec dive. We've been down at least 150 and more. Always done as a dpv dive though. They kind closed it down though, now you have to get a permit to dive it. Which kind sux. Or else boat dive it. Nice structure. Further down the fingers you go the deeper it gets as I recall.

Re: X Table Wanted

No longer made. Now Lowes has a copy, but with one substantial flaw... the table doesnt attached to the frame. Just kinda sits on the frame.

Re: Lake Washington Dive Sites

Leschi Wall is probably my favorite Lake Wa. dive site. Bottom is around 180ft. Probably the best parts of the wall are in the 90-130ft range.

Re: Divers face long-term health impact from COVID-19

I think I had covid back in early december. The symptoms at least confirm it. I've been on a few deep and long tech dives since early Jan, no issues. But now I'm getting very light wheezing. First was after diving, humping my breather back to the car (long approach and walk back). This last time was...
