Thanks!

Take Bob Baileys private course. I was the first student of it, and even as I still look back many years later, the best course I've ever taken.

LCF and her husband would be my recommendation, they are in Woodinville.

I'd appreciate recommendations for private instructors for a refresher course in the Seattle area (I'm in Issaquah). If a couple other folks are in a similar situation maybe we could get a small class together with an instructor. (Maybe I missed it but I didn't see anything on the local shop calendars this summer.)

Background: despite all my sound and fury (and money) after completing my OW a couple of years ago, I haven't been in the water for over a year and have less than 20 dives scribbled down in my log. Weighting is still an issue for me despite a buoyancy specific class; good try but I don't feel dialed in yet - maybe I'm special that way.
