Re: Have you speared another spearo?

Unfortunately some guns have no safeties. Other guns people forget to engage them.

Of course, a truly catastrophic injury can be avoided by not having bands pulled back.

Re: Have you speared another spearo?

Very good points (no pun intended - LOL) - I'm starting to seriously consider lines off my stern and/or side I have the ladder with carabiners so you can clip your gun, stringer, or BC. Then after...

Re: Recommendations for fabricator of dive ladder/platform in NPR/Clearwater area?

I had another thought - I still really like the idea of the type of ladder and rails I described, and don't mind paying some for it, but now I'm thinking of a hybrid - at the bottom run when the...

Re: Recommendations for fabricator of dive ladder/platform in NPR/Clearwater area?

Hmm - maybe next time you are over we can walk through this, think about it, etc. I just really like the idea of having a lot of railing to hold onto as you come up on to the platform. Maybe...

Re: Recommendations for fabricator of dive ladder/platform in NPR/Clearwater area?

Problem is I'm not a fan of those myself. Every time I've used them on other boats I didn't like them for various reasons. I love the idea of a true hand rail that allows you to use it from the...

Re: Recommendations for fabricator of dive ladder/platform in NPR/Clearwater area?

Yeah, I decided that the price of being a little more selective of my days is a HELL of a lot less $$ than the price of a new/newer cat. For the cost of a few boat payments I can upgrade and swap...

Re: Current Vis - Tampa Bay Region (Homosassa to Sarasota)

Nope.

Of course, I could have just captained the boat and let you idiots do all the shooting :)

Re: Project Boat Discussion: Tips, Ideas, Mistakes...

There are times I love mine and times I hate them. I would definitely make sure there are hand-holds/rails along the top of the roof on the outside edge - I think that is a very good idea. But if...

Damn - looking good, James. Hope to be on her maiden voyage next year!

BTW - any plans for any sort of bow railing?

Re: South Carolina man gets bitten on the head, shares attack video

I think we have a case of recto-cranial inversion here.

"6-7 foot shark"? Nah, brah - more like 4-5 foot.

Hogfish? Good GOD I would drown anyone on my boat who came up with such a small hog -...

Re: Current Vis - Tampa Bay Region (Homosassa to Sarasota)

Seriously? You need to learn how to gauge distances. I was NEVER closer than 250 yards from you. I remember your boat distinctively. I even waved pleasantly and wondered whether you were a member...

Re: Current Vis - Tampa Bay Region (Homosassa to Sarasota)

Went out Sunday 11/25 due west of NPR. Couldn't have picked a better day between fronts. Leaving from Nick's Park at 0745 at LOW tide (lowest I've ever seen it there) was a great idea. Despite...

Re: Glock-Fishing (underwater)

Honestly, I'm trying to understand what the issue is. We are talking about an INVASIVE species. Something that needs to be eradicated, by any means necessary. Nutria, baboons, jackals,...

Re: Glock-Fishing (underwater)

Not sure I understand. I was saying that lionfish in depths past where divers can take them STILL need to be eradicated. What are you saying?

Re: Glock-Fishing (underwater)

I'm sort of with Eibwen and Tyson on this one.

#1 - Nothing illegal here, harvesting lionfish (even "wasting" them) is a GOOD thing due to their invasive nature.

#2 - I cringe as well with...

Re: Friday or Sunday diving off NPR?

Yeah, I'm just going to take it slow and easy, leave early and hopefully back in early. Hoping to get out further than the artificial reefs.

Re: Current Vis - Tampa Bay Region (Homosassa to Sarasota)

Thanks, Dave - its been almost 2 years since I dove that spot due to the depth (only about 32 feet) - great little spot.
