    DEMA

    This device may not be perfect... to me is useless. I'm an old-fart-get-off-my-lawn type of person, so I'm not part the target demographic. But even if this device ends up dead before taking off, it could inspire a better one, and even if that 2nd item doesn't work either, it may pave the...

    Just curious @Akimbo can you tell what's the # for the latest user? Is this something one can look up for themselves?

    Question ScubaBoard's first thread?

    I couldn't find my joining date but I came over when Diverlink took a dive. Seems like very long ago. Wasn't it a different name back then? I don't remember all the details. Walter and I used to dive together often at that time. A big group from Diverlink tried this place but it was very...

    Question Weird question - equalizing/water in ear

    Another thing to help out is to massage the back of your ears with a balm/ointment shortly before the dive. When I found out, I laughed at the suggestion making fun of the friend doing it, I called it witchery and asked her if she also took her broom on the dive. This friend of mine was using...

    Question Info on moving to South FL

    I have similar feelings about our place. The plan is to go from here to the crematorium but you never know ... I told my 2 sons to not count on the place until they have our ashes in their hands, just in case either my husband or I need to go to an old farts home, there's a nice one right by...

    Question Info on moving to South FL

    Just as bad as those Associations are, the ones that do have homeowners involved can be worse. At least the ones above only take your money, the ones with owners involved can suck your soul. I've never owned a home with HOA but my parents did and it was ridiculous, my parents were never...

    Question Info on moving to South FL

    Well... I wouldn't suggest to buy up there right away but definitely visit, and do it often. People who doesn't like South Florida, specifically SE Florida sometimes fall in love with that area up north. I came to SE Florida in '85, Broward county too far inland for my taste. Little by...

    Thinking back, what caused you to go solo?

    I think the flag is useless for many type of dives, but extremely useful for drift diving, regardless of the law. It isn't easy to follow the bubbles of a diver, following the flag is a lot easier. If your exit is not going to be the same as your entry the flag is a great tool for the boat...

    Question Info on moving to South FL

    Desirability sometimes can be tricky. This is why I suggested to be in the area for a while. Obviously #1 is YOUR definition of desirable, some factors are 100% objective and can be found in public records , how many sex offenders in street X or is it next to a halfway house, to mention...

    Question Info on moving to South FL

    I can't imagine going to a place and buying right away. It would take me about a year on a rental to figure out where do I want to be. The good thing about S. Florida is the variety of places available. You could have a McMansion out west (30-40-50 minutes from the ocean), for the cost of a...

    Southeast Florida condo

    On my way to the intracoastal I see these condos. Before buying my house I thought something like this would be the only way I could afford to have the boat in the water. I still like them, as an alternative if/when I get too old for house maintenance. They appear to be well stablished with...
