Thanks for the heads-up. I think I may have stumbled on a suit that will work if it hasn't sold yet!

Just in case anyone has something they might part with, I am:
5' 11"
185 Lbs
34" Waist
34" Inseam
10.5-11 shoe
Plus a small, built-in ballast tank forming in the middle. :uh:

You are just a hop and a skip to some awesome dive sites!
What is your schedule like? There is a large diving community in the Seattle/Puget Sound area with lots of diving.
Hope to meet you soon!

Most weekdays I can be off by 2 or 3 in the afternoon and mid-day most Fridays. Most weekend days are off.

Your profile says you do photography for the navy. Do you do underwater photography?

Hope to see you at a site soon!


I have dabbled a bit in the past with dive photography with work equipment, but I have never gotten gear of my own beyond a GoPro.

This Should go to some of the things I did in Guam last year.

Ready To Dive PNW

Post by USNRas » Thu May 30, 2019 8:48 pm

Hello all,

I'm a fairly experienced diver, mostly tropical with a few cold water dives. This is my second time living in WA, but didn't dive before.

I'm in Poulsbo, but willing to travel a bit for some dives. Currently I own a 7/8 mil wetsuit but looking to get into a dry suit before winter.

I love night dives!

210(ish) total dives

Basic - PADI 2003 & 2010 Guam & Cuba
Advanced - PADI 2010 Cuba
NITROX - PADI 2018 Guam
SOLO - SDI 2018 Guam

Looking forward to getting in the water here and finding some dive buddies.

Ras
