    SOLD!!! No longer FS: Halcyon 40#/HP100 rig, DR regs, DR Al BP

    Sorry for the slow responses again. Nothing has sold, so it's all made the move to Montana at this point. All available, but shipping will be necessary, and I'll probably have to spend some time sorting boxes to find it all.

    Shoot, sorry folks. I thought I had notifications turned on, but I guess not. I'll upload the rest of the photos this evening.

    SOLD!!! No longer FS: Halcyon 40#/HP100 rig, DR regs, DR Al BP

    First round of pics up. I'll get photos of the tanks shortly. Also adding to the list: Used pair of XL Scubapro Jet fins with spring straps. These are probably ~15 years old, and fewer than 100 dives on them. These are US made, and considerably heavier than the current ones. Always stored in a...

    SOLD!!! No longer FS: Halcyon 40#/HP100 rig, DR regs, DR Al BP

    Update 3/19/21: Having issues receiving notifications from SB. Moved without selling anything, so my main driver to sell no longer exists. Everything is still available, but I'm unwilling to dig through all the boxes and find items at this point. Once I get settled, I may re-list everything. For...

    STA bolts

    This is my solution. If you have an aluminum backplate, use a flat washer, then place the split washer on top of it, or you'll gouge the backplate over time. Not really an issue with a stainless backplate, but I still use flat washers just so it's all the same.

    Dive Shop On Wheels Research

    I feel like this is a relevant article: Creative Customer Care I've spent more than a few paychecks at the above shop in my life. Their customer service has always been beyond reproach. Lots of work, sure. But I think it's a workable business model, and certainly serves to build...

    Finger spool repair

    If you're diving in salt, I'd avoid powdercoat. It's great while it lasts, but once you scratch or chip it, the aluminum will corrode under the finish and it will gradually flake off in chunks and look terrible. With a spool, you'll chip the coating on the outside edge the first time it brushes...

    Want to Buy Seeking Halcyon Eclipse 30lb wing cover.I’ll take one even in bad conditi

    Look in to this. My 15 year old 30lb wing's cover just started (literally) coming apart at the seams, top and bottom within a couple weeks of each other. I asked last week and was told it'll be covered by warranty.

    COVID Air Travel Experiences?

    Several flights here. International into Honolulu, on to San Fransisco. I was overseas when it was really kicking off, arriving in Honolulu shortly after they initiated a quarantine, so the domestic legs of travel were very unique and uncertain. Lots of canceled flights, it took a few days to...

    Metric or imperial? Do you know the rough manufacture date, since the battery is non-replaceable?

    Excursion Gauge Mode Questions

    Thanks for trying it out Jerry! I forgot I'd posted this thread. Landon replied via email and confirmed what you did: top line is depth, just a typo in the manual. The reset button resets both stopwatch and average depth at the same time, and they cannot be reset separately. Kind of a bummer...

    I thought I was done living paycheck to paycheck

    The unfortunate truth is that this is extremely common post-disaster. I used to volunteer with a disaster response organization, and we were often the first group of folks allowed in after the legitimate first responders. Most of the time, we were allowed in well before property owners even...

    I thought I was done living paycheck to paycheck

    Knowing people who can provide quality work makes a huge difference. "Back home," I know who's who in the trades, so getting quality work reliably is easy, and often times comes down to trading labor plus material cost. Living in California, where I have no history, I'm pretty much limited to...

    Hyperbaric Chamber and Oxygen Toxicity

    They cycle air breaks and don't maintain 100% nonstop. There's also a distinct and not well understood difference in how the body reacts to oxygen dry in a chamber as opposed to submerged.

    I thought I was done living paycheck to paycheck

    I think I also missed the memo that buying the house was the cheap part. There's always something that needs attention. If there isn't, then something else will break in a catastrophic way. I'm a handy guy, grew up in construction. I do most of the work on the house myself (and end up...

    MOLLE

    I don't think I would want to connect weights directly to the wing, with MOLLE or any other method. Good way to trap air. The wing isn't remotely rigid, so you'll have no control over where the weight is at any given time. MOLLE was created for modularity. It's in the name. If your objective...
