    There may be something to that idea, but have you ever read the candidate statements from some of those gen-pop runners? Maybe it's different where you live, but around here there's some true nuttery...

    The point is that it scan a normal PC Windows directories and found bunch virus that is suppose to be on my computer and I'm using a MAC without dual boot and NO Windows directories. Then it want me...

    If the vis was so bad that I needed a line, then I'd probably just skip the dive. When the vis is good enough to go (~6' or better) then the line would have to be pretty long to be of any use -...

    I typically get my mask seated properly before pulling my gloves on - bare fingers are a lot more sensitive to the stray hair or small fold.

    What do you mean by "feels wrong"? Is it leaking,...

    He sure did. If that diver gave me any lip, I'd definitely punch the beauty queen. Although it's hard to judge by appearances with those 19th C adventurers - some seriously badass dudes looked...

    That's what I was going to suggest. I've never done a liveaboard but on the overnight rides on our local boats I always bring a set of earplugs.
