    CO Analyzer Calibration

    Out of curiosity, how are these calibrated and what's the sensor-life like? I like the Analox 02 Analyzer and simply calibrate on 20.9 ambient air. How does is work with CO? Thanks!

    Best way to dive the Flower Gardens?

    Lot's of good advice here, but here's the combo that works for me... I don't take chances and find the OTC stuff works for me and is readily available and cheap at the local drug store, so I take both: I take the non-drowsy stuff on the drive down (5:00pm). I take the drowsy stuff at...

    Hammerheads at Flower Garden Banks

    Naimis, if you had made more than "one really short dive" you would have had a better experience to report on. Yes, the first dive at 8:00 Saturday had very strong current, not surprising for this time of year early in the morning. After descending, I spent most of my dive hanging on the mooring...

    Full Cave Training in Cozumel

    That's a sweet dive. So very cool to really practice your buoyancy in the shallow water column plus see how far your air supply will last under 20 feet :D Great job guys, keep the posts coming.

    Si Tech Neck Tite - Neck Seal Quick Exchange

    Sorry to hear it CPH, real bummer. It looks a low on the suit in the picture based on the distance from the inflator, but it's hard to tell. My neck ring is 2.25 inches (5.715 centimeters) from the inflator measured from the inside. This also assumes most suits have the inflator in the same...

    Si Tech Neck Tite - Neck Seal Quick Exchange

    Sorry to hear it and I hope that's the case... I've got around 20 dives on mine installed in USIA suit, no problems. The ring is somewhat rigid and they say you can heat it to curve better over the shoulders. I chose not to, and it has naturally curved over time. I also store it hanging on a 1...
