Re: IMPACTS OF WIDENING THE RIP

Packo again, with an afterthought post: I've had some second thoughts about my last reply to baza. Perhaps it was the way baza's original post was framed, but I unintentionally slipped into the "its all about the Heads" mindset that I have previously criticised others for, including the po...

Re: IMPACTS OF WIDENING THE RIP

Hello baza, Apologies for the delay in replying but I used the recent good weather with a couple of days doing measurements off Portsea and in the Rip. Its all done from a Kayak so is covid-19 "lockdown legal" (I think?). Plenty of "essential exercise" in that, but it leaves me a...

Re: IMPACTS OF WIDENING THE RIP

Hello baza. You wrote: (I think I did it correctly but if not here goes again ) . . . Not sure what happen in that first try - but the system says you have only made the one post, and there have been no PM's (personal messages) to me. Never mind all that as I now have received your question - and it...

Re: Tide Questions or Arguments

***** Apology ***** Hi newman, Very sorry about the many days delay in replying to your post but I have been a little busy.

Re: Tide Questions or Arguments

Hi newman, welcome to the forum! Great to finally get some questions! (In the old dive-Oz forum days there were quite a few questioners - but on this forum you are the first in over 2 years!). BTW interested to know if you are a diver or sailor in this region, or just have a curiosity interest in Po...

Re: 8mm neoprene dry suit

hi "YakForger", Welcome to the Scubadoctor forums. Don't worry about asking beginner's questions here - that is where all of us started! Probably you haven't got a response from anyone in the dive shop yet is because it is a very busy time of the year for them and they might not be checkin...

Re: City of Rayville

Hello Lloyd, As you say the Nat Shipwreck Database coords of: 38 58.800's 143 30.600'e show this is most likely a "roughie position" as hinted at by the trailing "00"s in both coordinates. I can't add much to your post other than to say an American eChart I use (which does seem t...

Re: Rowan Stevens GPS Marks for Wrecks

In the original post, after an edit, Lloyd wrote: The Rowan Stevens (RS) marks published for some sites are different to what we have (Sdoc). Some by just the last figure which probably isn't significant. But sometimes by a far bit. Coogee - RS 38 18.429, 144 34.300 - Sdoc 38 18.421, 144 34.306 Cour...

Re: Rowan Stevens GPS Marks for Wrecks

Lloyd wrote (before re-editing): The Rowan Stevens marks published for the Batman, Beverwyk 19, Campana, Fawkner, Pioneer and VHB 53 all match what we have in the database. Perhaps that is not such a good thing! If GPS marks from two sources match exactly, then it is around 99% certain that one is c...
