    My Johnson goes up and down!

    When I am running the 1984 3 cylinder, 2 stroke Johnson outboard on my 17' Boston Whaler, the engine works OK at low speeds. Once I open it up a bit, the RPMs go up and down, sort of like a surge. I have replaced or rebuilt the fuel system from the tank to the spark plugs, so I don't see what...

    Ear Problems

    Did the open water dives down to 50 feet. A OK! I equalize as soon as I go under, and keep ahead of the pressure. The cert dives were at La Jolla Shores and we had a good time. I am looking forward to diving here in south orange county. Thank you for all of your advice!! Happy Hunting!!

    Ear Problems

    In the pool I practiced equalize my way to the bottom, so if I go gradually, I think that I will be OK. I want to be able to cruise along the bottom. Freediving has no problem with The Bends, but ear pressure is no different. Freediving means that I can't pause to equalize for as long. Maybe...

    Ear Problems

    Got a DMV Physical for my class A CDL and asked about scuba, and the doc cleared me for action. I was told "Don't do anything stupid!" and "Bring me some lobster!" Pool dives this weekend, and ocean dives weather permitting. Look out bugs!! -N

    Ear Problems

    I want to learn to scuba dive, but I have had ear problems in the past. In 1984 my brother boxed my ears and popped a hole in my eardrum. It took quite a while to heal, and I asked my doctor (GP) about it a few years ago. He used a pressure gauge and told me that he thought that the hole was...

    Cpt. (needs) Convincing

    Where you go and what you throw kind of dictates what you may catch. I am not likely to get a bag limit of calicos on the 117 and very few marlin along a jetty. Throwing a whole live mackeral probably won't catch me many sculpin, and I dont think that tuna will hit mussel. He needs to have a...

    Facts are Photo's

    So if I hold it closer to the camera, it will look bigger? :) I wouldn't want the moderators to ban me because of their "No Chips, No Dips" rule. :( I never thought of weighing it, but it measures a good solid 13! ...Oh, no. Wait, those are centimeters. Sorry. -N.
