Re: Sea Snip Dive Scissors

The link I posted also has them in black and blue, which are only $10. I go with the bright colored handle so if they are accidentally dropped in silty and/or low vis situations they are easier to...

Phil Nuytten of Nuytco (NewtSuit) apparently had a 1 ATM suit in a container ready to get to KW but was denied access to the scene by USN. This was from an old conversation on the subject.

Re: Rebreather's Will Kill You

The rescue was a Charlie Foxtrot. Link and Stover were dressed lightly for the expected short excursion. The unmoused clip in the blind spot snagged a cable, anchoring JSL to the wreck. Once the...

Re: Rebreather's Will Kill You

JSL accident had little to nothing to do with the breathing gas, particularly since as you know they weren't free-swimming divers. Their deaths could have been prevented but the situation was a...

Re: The NOAA continues to prove they are not very bright...

I guess you missed the point that you don't need car tires or dog bones. You can use PFD and mooring or anchor line.

As far as the light ordinances, you would have to check with county...
