Re: No More Hog Fish till 2018

Off Ft Lauderdale, they are gone. Back in the late 70's and early 80's I would see them all the time on the first and second reef, small and big ones. Now, I cant tell you when the last time I saw...

Re: Zeagle Regulator Blows at 180 ft

Couple things with doubles, with a back plate they are closer to the body which gives you better balance and weight distribution. As, as you said, matching gas capacity, couple of smaller tanks,...

Re: Zeagle Regulator Blows at 180 ft

This incident is also a good lesson on why it may be a better option on deep dives to have doubles with an isolator valve. In this instance JfJf could have just as easily shut down the offending...

Re: Shore diving help (FLL)

Couple of things. One is, "shootable" fish off the 1st reef are few and far between. I have been free diving these areas for years and it is rare to really see any fish that I would be proud to...

Re: How long to get Tec/Trimix certified?

I am both IANTD and GUE certified. If you are really interested in doing some deeper dives I would strongly suggest the GUE route.

2 classes, Fundamentals Tec and then Tec 1. At the end you will...

Re: Zeagle Regulator Blows at 180 ft

Personally, I would never have gotten into the water with a 2 year old service on any rig that I had not rebuilt myself. Or any unknown rebuild for that matter.

For example, I purchased an Apeks...

Re: Zeagle Regulator Blows at 180 ft

If the Zeagle is the same as the Apeks, there should be a very slight "bulge" when pressurized. And when not pressurized the clear diaphragm should be concave.

If you depressurize the reg and...

Re: Anyone recognize this anchor????

Works if you don't have a 4kt current. In that current the bag would be 25' underwater, if not deeper. I've seen that current sink 4' diameter float balls.

Re: Anyone recognize this anchor????

You were wacked. Watch it close. You set down your gear on top of what you are about to launch. You never pull in the anchor line to even see if is caught on anything. Plus, did you even think of...

Re: Is This a Reef?? (Image Attached)

Yes that is a reef. You actually have to swim over the first reef to get to that one. Be carful though, heavy boat traffic due to being so close to the port. Plus, depending on the tide visibility...

Re: Going back to hell again on 9-19-15 > WWII Helldiver Airplane wreck dive in 185 f

Increasing oxygen percentages will not decrease narcosis. That is a 1990's myth. Oxygen is close to or equally narcotic as N2 at depth.

All you are doing by increasing O2 percentages is pushing...

Re: BARRACUDA closure without a study!!

Funny you say that. Been diving the Ft Lauderdale area since 1975. Up until the 90's you had to push the cuda's out of the way to get to the wrecks. I would see massive ones off the reefs, matter...

Re: Let's blame hunting and fishing again - Really?

Unless I rode my bike to the beach towing my kayak and paddled out to the reef! :D

Actually, my "argument" had nothing to do with your post, you read too much into it, but you made a good point.

Re: Let's blame hunting and fishing again - Really?

I will assume you meant "too" simple. Doing a quick search, 15 PADI dive shops, 2 SSI shops, 1 NAUI, in Broward. Could be a few more, could be some over lap. That what's showing just from the...

Actually they don't, you can be very "responsible" in your activities but they still may not be economically and/or environmentally sustainable.
