    Twinsets, redundancy, and what problem are we solving...

    There are several people still walking around thanks to my 30 cu ft. Pony bottle. I now have upgraded to a 40 cu ft Pony. On one of those rescues from over 100' FSW, the 30 did run out near the surface. The nearest chamber was hundreds of miles away with no way to get there. I like redundant...

    Best Dive Store with 50 miles of NYC?

    I bought my first full set of recreational equipment and did training with Scuba Network when they were around the corner and located on Old Country Road for 25-30 years. They moved around the corner to Glen Cove Road. To me, they are a chain of stores with high prices and not really supporting...

    Master Liveabord Fuel surcharge

    You can always write a truthful and accurate review of their business practices upon trips completion. Me personally, if there was a way out, like even paying a cancelation fee I would not want to do business with them. If I were trip shopping and read your review that would be enough to keep me...

    Dive the Moskva

    There seems to be very wide variations in the estimed depth. I have now seen everything from 120' to 390'. Where did you see the 120' foot figure ? If it really is in 120' of water this may later turn into a major dive destination.

    Dive the Moskva

    I wouldn't be surprised if the U.S. Navy was already in there. I think there are nukes on the vessel. That why the Russians got on it so fast. When they go in there the silt will be stirred up and the code books long gone. Are you operating a dive boat these days or are you retired ? I would...

    Dive the Moskva

    Dive the Moskva

    I don't beleive they are trying to refloat it, but instead to recover certain equipment from it since they know it will fall into enemy hands soon. The UK just donated 100 Harpoon missiles, the U.S. also donated some. The 110 year old salvage ship and the 7 other support ships are anchored there...

    That's too bad. It would have been very interesting, if it were possible. An Epic military wreck dive.

    Dive the Moskva

    Apparently, there is a new Russian Military wreck that is within Tech diving limits. According to Russian Military the crew was removed before the sinking so it should not be considered a war grave. There are rumors of Nuclear weapons on board and an 8 ship salvage operation is currently...
