Hi Will!
Cool finds! Are you back?

#2 is a sea spider, likely giant sea spider Nymphon pixellae
#5 is a scallop
#6 female scalyhead (I think)

Nah - not back yet. I'm actually on my way back to Florida next month to get some diving in there again. The dive club I joined last time I was there asked if I would give a quick talk about my experience diving in the PNW at their June club meeting and I am just trying to get IDs for the photos I'll be using during the talk.

Thanks for the potential IDs.
