    An actual legitimate use for spare air???

    New legitimate use for spare air? ... to make a quick run into the convenience store in the age of COVID.

    Building a dedicated shore diving trailer

    I would be careful about going large on the trailer. There are dive sites that would be difficult to access while towing. A larger trailer trailer would make that even more challenging.

    ScubaBoard Invasion Central 2021 Belize

    We haven’t dived together since LBTS almost 10 years ago. The wife and I look forward to seeing you again after all these years.

    Looking for experts on FL diving.

    Agreed... I consider BHB a backup dive for days when it’s too rough to go out. I would not travel to Florida specifically to do that dive. There’s just too many other, better options.

    any advantage/disadvantage of a black skirt mask

    I prefer clear because I can see shadows thru the skirt. More than once, I’ve turned to see fish and other divers that I would have missed otherwise. A black skirt feels like tunnel vision.

    Looking for experts on FL diving.

    The Dania Jacks (AKA Euro Jacks) is a nice dive just North of the Dania Beach pier. It’s one of my favorite shore dives. Always lots fish, a nurse shark or two, and occasionally a good size ray.

    Bare tanks pickle with use. It’s normal.

    BP/W or BCD

    Just FYI... with the steel plate and STA, you won’t need to carry as much weight as with the BCD.

    How do you secure your wing nuts?

    I grab the ears of the wing nuts with a 4-inch crescent wrench and put an extra 1/2 turn on them. Problem solved with no added failure points.

    Diving From an Inflatable Raft

    There’s also wind and current to deal with. A friend had a small Zodiac with a 4.4 HP motor. It ran fine under perfect conditions. It’s perfect to get from the dock out to a boat at anchor. We tried to take it into the ocean once and we couldn’t make it out against the incoming tide. It was...

    Scubapro Mk20 and g500

    I have both. It’s a great setup and a steal at $100, even if you have to pay to have them rebuilt.

    June CHUM meeting, Thurs 6/18 7pm - It's a good one!

    Interesting... I was the first person to ever dive the City of Houston back before it was identified in 1988.

    Mixing gases in a cylinder for a partial fill

    When the fill is complete, and the whip is still connected, crack the valve on the air and give the tanks a quick blast before disconnecting. Mixes everything nicely.

    Diving without predetermined buddy

    I do a lot of pickup dives with strangers. It's fairly easy to avoid the worst of the worst. After that, it's been my experience that most instabuddies have at least met the minimum standards for a dive buddy. (Keeping in mind, that a basic OW buddy is pretty much just an alternate air source.)...

    Unfortunately, this is going to be affecting trips well into next year. Coronavirus: Worldwide peak will come next winter, scientific model predicts

    Jumping off a boat with secondary reg on necklace.

    The bungee should be short enough that the reg can’t get past your chin without stretching the bungee. If the reg is hanging down to the middle of your chest, it’s too loose. I see a lot of divers with the bungee way too loose.

    Anyone want to go to Peacock this weekend?

    I wasn’t with a group that day.
