Re: Bass Strait Warning

Hello, Not sure if this post really belongs in this thread, but it all started when I clicked on Lloyd's link to the Casino Wreck dive site page from his post above. Initially this was to read the new "Bass Strait Warnings" text. This seems a worthwhile thing to do. My attention then drift...

Re: Mystery GPS Marks

Hello, "Mystery Marks"? Who doesn't like a mystery? Lloyd's burst of Good Friday posts are in part concerned with weeding his dive site database of bogus or mystery GPS marks. That is indeed a worthwhile endeavour but is getting harder as the database is growing fast! Packo's very long &qu...

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. The relevant BoM folk are now aware of this minor glitch. Probably they won't be fixing it since this (mis)information has been in the public domain s...

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!). 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...
