Minor Moon Times glitch: BoM 2021 RIP predictions

Only barely worth a mention but the 2021 RIP predictions on the BoM website (and the linked *.pdf file) have Moon Phase dates mostly 1 day too early.

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

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!).

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...
