    Key Largo dive trip

    My friend lives a few hours north of Key Largo, so we're only planning a day-trip down there. Unfortunately we won't have enough time to make it all the way down to West this time around. Hopefully we will on the next trip!

    Key Largo dive trip

    Thanks. Looks like I'll be taking charge of the reservations and making a few phone calls myself.

    Key Largo dive trip

    We're going to be in Florida next week and we were going to try to do a quick dive in Key Largo, and my friend who lives in Florida was trying to book us a dive and was told they are only doing private charters at the moment due to Covid. We don't have 6 people in our group to charter a whole...

    DGX Custom 30# vs Hog 32# BPW?

    I got the DRIS package last week that included all HOG gear (aluminum plate and standard harness) and DRIS's Mirage 23/38lb wings. I got about 10 dives in it last week. The Mirage wing is a nice piece of gear and worked well, but I think I'm going to remove the bungee cord from the smaller 23...

    Wobbling STA

    I would have just gone without it, but the DRIS Mirage wing I have doesn't have slots, so it requires an STA. I thought about cutting slots in it, but I think I'll try the STA for now since it seems stable at this point.

    Wobbling STA

    I just put the whole thing together tank and all and that was the problem. It is rock solid now without those little white plastic bolt retainers in place.

    Wobbling STA

    That's the one! I took off the little white plastic bolt retainers and that seems to have helped quite a bit.

    Wobbling STA

    It's a Dive Rite and came with carriage bolts and derlin nuts.

    Wobbling STA

    I just got my bp/w put together and no matter how tight I make the STA it still wobbles. I'm going to assume it is from the grommets on the wing and the additional grommet on the harness. How do I reduce/eliminate that?

    DGX Custom 30# vs Hog 32# BPW?

    I had the DGX system ordered, but they contacted me and told me the wings were on backorder and subsequently canceled my order. Then I went over to DRIS and bought their HOG/DRIS Mirage 23/38# wing setup. With the extra options I wanted, it came out to be about the same price as DGX and I'll...

    The Importance of Logging your Dives. The Advantages for new divers (and old)

    I have always kept paper logs because I like to go back and read about some of my older dives, but now after a few "I almost lost my dive book" experiences throughout the years, I think I might give Subsurface a try.

    Old Poseidon BC parts

    The threads on the DR doesn't match the Poseidon. They are the same size, but different threads. I would like to just replace the entire hose assembly if I can find one with the same threads.

    Old Poseidon BC parts

    I have a 20 year old Poseidon Biscaya Techlift BC that is still in excellent shape . . . but . . . the pull-dump inflator hose has broken. The plastic valve in the shoulder connection has cracked. Because of its age, Poseidon was no help at all when I contacted them for replacement parts. My...

    Missouri/Arkansas get together?

    Yeah, that's the same map I was trying to use. Depths must be off quite a bit because I found a boat that isn't on the map and couldn't find anything that is on the map. I'll try again another weekend. Thanks!

    Missouri/Arkansas get together?

    Is there a newer map available? Most everything has been changed and/or moved from the only map I can find.
