    Nylon thread can sew up a lot of stuff. Can you fix it.

    I was going to try for COZ this weekend; but, my boys passport expires on Monday. I heard we can get one day service at the passport office. Keep my fingers crossed.

    The wife is running around tonight getting the proper notarized form for the boy from his bio dad. I can take the passport pictures and we can download the form. It's starting to look good. There are some seats on the morning flight out of houston.

    Since many of our diving related items have zippers that are exposed to salt water I think I will pick up some more drysuit zipper lube and get some zipper cleaner like ST has in the drysuit section. Wet suits, dry suits, some hoods, some gloves, and some BC's have them so $11$ is pretty inexpensive to keep the zippers zippin.

    If it doesn't fit, force it. If it breaks it needed to be replaced anyway.

    Thanks Steveo, I'll pick some up monday when I go by ST. And no I can't sew it up because it is hole rubbed in it and not a tear. About 1 " dia so I think it's history. Good luck on getting to Coz let us know how it was.

    The trick is the pull on the zipper really hard until you hear a "tearing" noise, and then give more money to Scuba Toys. It literally works every time
    Rock on, go big or go home, hit the ground running, hang in there kitty... don't eat the yellow snow...

    I didn't make it to COZ Saturday. My boys passport expires on Monday. So, the wife is going to go to downtown Houston Passport Office Monday morning and get it renewed. Maybe Tuesday we can go. I did get a chance to try out my full face mask today in the pool. It's pretty cool. No fogging issues and no leaks. It takes a little getting used to; but, the field of view is tremendous.

    Well after soaking it for 48 hrs the zipper still refuses to move. So out came the vise grip pliers to get a good grip on the toggle. I now have a detached toggle. Now being a trained investergator I have deduced that the bag is a total loss and it is time to move to my back up bag or as Bennerman says "Give ST more money".
