I remember the incident described in the news story because I had recently become […]

Edmund Fitzgerald: Most Famous of Great Lakes Shipwrecks

http://www.shipwreckmuseum.com/edmund-fitzgerald-36/ I remember hearing the Gordon Lightfoot song when I was about ten or eleven years old. It’s kind of burned into my memory so every time I see something about the Edmund Fitzgerald, I perk up a bit. I found this site with recordings of the banter between a boat captain and the U.S. […]

More Gold From the Atocha

Story: http://news.yahoo.com/florida-divers-treasure-famed-wreck-151015129.html If there’s one thing that I believe all divers have in common it’s that somewhere deep in the recesses of our subconscious minds, there’s a remote hope that’we’ll discover treasure. As a kid, I remember reading a book from the library that was an account of Mel Fisher’s search for the Nuestra Señora de Atocha, which […]

Is my SCUBAPRO Titanium regulator compatible with the use of Nitrox or pure oxygen?

I personally love titanium for a regulator material, but it generally isn’t a good choice for tech divers due to incompatibility with high concentrations of oxygen (above 40%) in the breathing gas mix. The following from Scubapro offers some detail why this is the case. ivermectin是什么药 gaminátor ingyenes kaszinó játékok fortuna zakłady bukmacherskie oferta Source […]

Carson High Students Lose Lives SCUBA Diving in Monterey

http://www.mynews4.com/story.php?id=40700&n=122 Two kids lost their lives diving in Monterey over the weekend. Details are limited but indications are that they ran out of air. I can’t speculate about what took place underwater. They were 16 and 17 years old. My assumption is that inexperience played a role. Time flies underwater and new divers tend not […]

Aqualung Airsource 3 Review

For recreational diving, I’m a big fan of what’s becoming known as the “safe second” stage BCD inflator/alternate air source. I very recently switched from the original SeaQuest Air Source, to the Aqualung Airsource 3. I mentioned in another post that I like the original better. I made two more dives with it today, his […]

Jacques Cousteau

I don’t have anything profound to say about Jacques Cousteau, since most likely, anyone who stumbles across this already has been touched by the man or his work in some deep and enduring way. As a kid growing up in Southern California in the early 1970’s, I remember many rainy days at school when rather […]
