Re: WA announcement- PV fishing rights and access

I think they are ticketing now more aggressively. I want to say I've heard of a handful more spearos getting tickets for hopping the fence, and getting stopped and questioned by law enforcement if...

Re: Carbon Fin Reviews

Thanks for this tip on the C4 300 pockets. It worked well--a pair of very sharp scissors cuts the material easily. I spent about 10 minutes with scissors, fins, and booties carefully checking contact...

Re: Wetsuit question

Thanks for digging that up. The medium density suits I have been wearing are likely comparable to the Y50 so the Y45 I got last year seems to have more compressibility.

I felt like my Y45 Oceaner...

Re: Wetsuit question

Sort of.

I remember when Y45 was new, and I remember those same claims, although I think the actual claim was that Y45 was suppossed to resist _permanent_ compression. In practice, my custom...

Re: Wetsuit question

OP: you probably would hardly notice the difference until you have been diving for many hundreds (or thousands) of hours in various wetsuits but Y45 is very low density. This means it feels very...

Re: best glue for foot pockets

AKA Premium Tire glue. It is good stuff, intended for RC cars. I think Mori was the first to discover it about 3-4 years ago and most of the socal shops use it now. We haven't had any issues. Like...

Re: Newbie question about shorter spearguns

Re: gun on your belt
It is drag, entanglement risk, obnoxiously clattering on the bottom as you are hunting, a pointy thing inline with your calf that could stab you when you get rolled into rocks...

Re: How often should I breathe the tables?

Real apnea training and certain kinds of intense spearing will certainly run your iron levels down. Newer divers doing static tables often are not getting hypoxic enough for this to actually happen,...

Re: Newbie question about shorter spearguns

Point blank, in a hole you can easily shoot and land with a 65cm gun a sheephead easily two or three times as big as what will make you and your household sick of sheephead for a good long while......

Re: Carbon Fin Reviews

@jhip sure, they make very nice fins. Try to demo a pair as Cetma makes a variety of models and stiffnesses.

Re: Kaboat

I have beach launched a few times. Easiest is with late model 2.5hp 2 stroke. Weighs 35lbs and can make 5 knots with two or three people. Tohatsu 6hp is pretty good, best power to weight until you...

Re: Kaboat

Ah, gotcha. Yes, weight distribution is a huge thing on the kaboat. I could probably get faster if I had a tiller extender and sat in the middle, plus my engine is really too much for the transom I...

Re: Kaboat

Wow, you are making 22 knots!?!? That is great! I don't remember if we were wide open when you were on mine but with the 15hp Suzuki EFI, 19 knots is about my top speed, although with 3 guys and gear...

Re: Wetsuit lube (CureCare discontinued)

If you want a FRAGRANCE FREE conditioner, Whole Foods 365 makes one. I haven't tried it in a wetsuit yet.

Re: new dive watch

Honestly I have barely used the compass and GPS, but whenever you exit dive mode it makes you save your current location, and during dive mode you can manually set a waypoint. When you sync to your...

Re: new dive watch

I broke down and got one (even with discount it was steep for me) after flooding to two F10's in a row. The Garmin charges through the case in a special cradle so it should be impossible to flood,...
