It’s been awhile since the last newsletter, but alas it’s here. The summer got off to a slow start but the diving was great. All our dive trips have been filling and people are excited. There is an abundance of new affordable digital cameras and underwater housings. With a good photo editing program on your computer, making adjustments and enhancing them is so much easier. No more waiting for film to be developed. Check out the Ikelite web site for available housings. You can link to them through our web site . While your at our web site there is a new link to DAN .

Maintenance Corner:

When cleaning your BC disconnect the shoulder straps, blow up with air through the mouthpiece and turn upside down. The corrugated hose should be at the lowest point and drain out any salt water. Add fresh water through the mouthpiece of plug on back (do not lose gasket). Shake BC and drain again. Salt water left to dry inside will crystallize and work like a pin cushion.
