    Anyone has recent info about 2 days Thistelgorm trip from Sharm?

    Emperor was doing it but they re-start in mid May. I called a number of dive centers but no one else has it. I'm talking about the 2 days -1 night trip which includes a night dive at the Thistelgorm, not about the day boats (those are plenty). Thanks a lot for any help. If you did it with...

    Mares Mr22 hard breathing and squealing at depth

I'm in Sharm (Red Sea) right now and my Mares setup (MR22 1st with Abyss 2nd) is noticeably harder to breathe from once I get deeper then 10m (33ft or so) and also starts squealing noticeably. Played a bit with the...

    Disassembling the plastic cover of the Suunto SK-5/SK-6 compass

    I have this compass (bought with a lot of different other gear) and it is somehow "lazy" (as in needs to be tilted a bit to go towards north). It may be set on a different zone (being old enough to be from the 5 zones era) but my guess is that the needle just lost a bit of it's magnetic...

    Mares MR12 and MR16 DIN 200BAR assemblies - identical or not?

    Had a look in the service manual and the numbers listed only differ by 1. (xxx803 vs xxx804) From the outside they look pretty much identical but of course the difference could be on the inside and then again could be very small/ hard to spot. Does anyone know whether these two parts are...

    Trimix and Apnea on Galileo Sol

    Hi, I was wondering if it's possible to have both trimix and apnea upgrades installed on the Galileo Sol? If yes, is there any specific upgrade path? I downloaded both upgrades from the Scubapro website but there's a big warning not to downgrade to 1.6 Fw while the Apnea upgrade archive...

    Fixing the beeper of an old style Suunto Eon

    Hello everyone, Would you care to share your experiences with tipping on Red Sea liveaboards? As in the specifics (day to day or/plus envelopes at the end, separate for crew/divemasters or not and so on) plus amounts. Looking to figure out what to expect. Thanks a lot.

    Mares demand lever height gauge (P/N 106230) for Akros/Nikos/ XTR/XL second stage

    Hello, I'm having a real hard time setting up the lever height on a Mares XL second stage, as the front cover presses on the diaphragm when installed. According to the manual, the correct way to do this without assembling the front cover 1000 times is to measure the lever height with the...

    Any reason NOT to do the Suunto wireless transmitter recall?

    Was just about to ship mine in and the old saying "if it ain broke don't fix it" came to mind. Is there any reason not to do the recall? Mine is very old (came with the Vytec DS) and has the plastic base but never had a problem with it in over 10 years. Any link problems of funny readings...

    Hello everyone, I bought this old computer with other gear and plan to use it as backup, however the USB interface appears to be insanely expensive and hard to find. Apparently someone came up with a DIY one (found the schematics after googling hard) also there are some edited drivers that would...
