    Looking for dive buddies

    Hey Kent! I'm free in Vancouver for tomorrow and Wednesday. NO local experience, but I am pretty experienced with northeast US conditions. Would need to rent a few things (drysuit mainly) that I left at home, but if you're up for some shore diving this Wednesday evening let me know. PMing you...

    Dive Boats: What Are 'Yours' Like?

    That's about the standard price (includes tip) where I dive, off the NJ coast. My record was paying $400 for a trip aboard a ~60 foot dive boat, ~12 people total, to a wreck about 70 miles off the coast. I got one dive in before things got too rough for me to be comfortable. I'm sure a lot of...

    Sleeping pills....

    I realize I am somewhat late to chip in to the thread, but here goes... As aircrew, we use Ambien pretty often while deployed and sleep cycles are shifting all over the place. It's prescribed by our flight surgeons. I hate the stuff. The next day, no matter now much sleep I get, my hands are...

    new diver's first suit, go for the semi-dry?

    OP - You will find that you may eventually have a small "quiver" of exposure protection. I too tried to make one thing (7mm) work for everything, but now I have: Drysuit for anything ~75*F or colder (tri-laminate suit with adjustable layers underneath) - This would certainly include most of...
