    Approximate Additional Weight for Salt Water?

    Cold HAHA and people wonder why I need 50+ lbs of lead and an HP 133 but I am rarely cold (even in the winter) . As far as rinsing goes, I carry my gear to and from the dive site in a plastic tote, so I just fill it with fresh water and soak it a few hours.

    Planning first trip to Roatan

    I did the shark dive through Media Luna a couple years ago. It was not a bad experience by any means. The pre dive briefing was very thorough and the crew was very professional.

    Iphone housing - Worth it? Which one?

    I actually have numerous dives on a Watershot brand housing and an old iPhone 6S works the very best. You can pick the phones up dirt cheap now. Unfortunately they only make housings for the current phone line up.
