    Sailboat gets in the way of Great Lakes freighter

    I can see this happing, I wish there was a little more vidio at the start to see where/what the sail boat came from or was doing.

    Follow up questions for woodworkers

    If the wood is in good shape just do the 220 grit, only use the low grit if you have marks/damage in the wood. I am a believer in more power so the palm sander works for me but hand sanding is OK.

    If you could live in Mexico for a few months...

    We have done both coasts. For 2 months with some diving I would do Yucatan. We did 3 weeks (not enough time) ( see trip report). I would base at Playa del Carmen, (if I was going to dive less 50% of the time) or close by(south) if wanting something smaller. If more diving then Cozumel. Taxi...

    Hookah from an anchored boat... Hookah from a float-based device... Hoo can share their experience?

    I love the idea of a fill compressor also but most small units take time to fill a tank. The last thing I wanted is to listen to a gas motor running all day. Living on a boat most of the time we were snorkeling. We were doing Sea Cortez and south for 6 months at a time in a 37 foot sailboat...

    Hookah from an anchored boat... Hookah from a float-based device... Hoo can share their experience?

    I would go with the two 100 foot hose( or four 50' ) but be sure you can connect them for a 200 foot hose if you ever need it.

    Hookah from an anchored boat... Hookah from a float-based device... Hoo can share their experience?

    We had a 37 foot sail boat. Tried the float but did not like it, just seem to get to much salt water on the unit. We ended up finding a way to mount it in the 10 foot inflatable dink 10hp outboard and we would pull the dink around so when we came up, the dink would be there. Being in the dink we...

    I guess what I was thinking is that if I am diving at 2000 ft I could return to 2000 ft without getting bent. I guess it makes a different since I am start at 0 ft even if the computer is set for 2000 ft??? so have to wait 4:28 hours. Thanks

    Possible southern reef closure

    If I remember right 99.9% of all species that have lived on this blue ball have vanish. Do I care? I do not think it matters one way of another. As long as one species thinks it can keep having babies and this blue ball will be OK, if we use the right sunscreen and paper straws. We are living in...
