"Courts for us. We're still going to lose. The state soon got to lose. How long has it been since I've been here? We don't have a knife every episode anymore. We basically did a lot last week so bad. Yeah. To give them a break. Yeah, yeah, that's kind of how it works. See, and if you're watching the video, I'm going to hold this map up of who voted for our stupid law. And you can see that the green counties are the ones that voted yes on it, and all the other red ones are the ones that voted no. So you get it's the typical liberal, strongholds, namely Portland that everybody knows about. So yeah, but it'll be shot down in courts. We just got to wait. So gun sales are through the roof right now. Magazines hailed through the roof. I see organ gun works. They were like, we're closed to sales right in here. They were closed today. I think it was today or it might have been yesterday to restock and do everything because they just couldn't they couldn't keep up and there's still a line out the door because there's so many people. Yeah, I mean, it's crazy. I went, I went to the gun store just to look. There's like nothing. And you know, I even went to the big box stores. And there's like nothing. It's like, and there's like, they were out to like backed up 9000 background checks. You know, and that's, you know, each of those people's could be buying more than one gun. You know, and it's just like, they're just like trying to make it. So that whenever it goes into effect, nobody can buy guns for who knows how long. Yep. So, but yeah. We're going to touch on politics here for a second. I got to move to Florida. I'm Florida for a minute. I don't know if the listeners will show no, but you guys know pretty well. I don't typically vote Republican or Democrat. I tend to vote libertarian just because that's what I do. But this last round I actually did vote for our incumbent governor, who is a Republican. And he won by a landslide. And mostly because after hurricane Ian destroyed a huge section of the West Coast, there was one island that this company came in and was like, hey, we can build a new road to get to the island. So you guys can get help from people. And the local municipality was like, well, we're going to have to go through all this, this, that, and the other, and the code are curious, like, nah, just go ahead and build the road in 5 days later the road was built. And that's like a bridge road. It's not. Yeah. 'cause it's like you know what? Yeah. And it's good. It's Ron DeSantis, Casey, but it's wondering he's probably going to run for president one day. It'll probably be the first mainstream candidate I vote for for president. Because and to bring it all back to the show, he likes guns. There you go. So, Tony, now you can tell us about all the political stuff that you do at the second is for everyone diversity. It says something on it. Hold on. I see it. It's got all these different brand manufacturers of firearms and stuff on it. I call it the wheel of freedom. It made out of wood. It's awesome. It's going to be a rightful Raphael item.

"I feel like we're going in circles here and maybe that's just what we do in the gun industry, but we went from full sized guns to super subtle, these new, they're not subcompacts 'cause they have more bullets, but their subcompact size to now we're making these super guns even bigger. Released their 360 five with like a 19 round magazine that's the size of the Glock 17 and I'm over here like, what are we doing? What you're doing is ending up with a Glock 19 size pistol again. That's the freaking dough. With a grip frame that other people can you're supposed to carry. Is that what we're at here? What do we do? Yep. They figured it out. And the 360 five macro is just for people that want that size that have super small hands. Actually three 50 my hand. than my Glock 19. Really? Yes. It's slightly longer than my Glock 19. Right. The pistol grip. And she said, a friend of mine contacted me today on Facebook when I posted this on Facebook. And he has the easy non and he said the grip safety was not, you know, he's a bigger guy. He has large hands. He's like 6 three. He's the grip safety was not a concern. Of course, I'm sure he has big meat hooks like Tony that I mean hill he could put a broom handle on the back of it and he could crush it. But, you know, I mean, at least the grip safety is going the right way. It's not going to work from the top down it's going from the bottom up. Because you're getting high up in the beaver tail and you're crushing it down. So that is good because usually with a small guns you get up high so your finger is in kind of parallel with the edge of the bore axis of the gun. So I think they did something right there. I was just kind of curious about the 15 year old Maggie, but overall I mean, if I could find one of the rap prompts, I would probably pick one up. I mean, but I've got the 360 five, the original 360 five. So I don't know if I would or not. I'm still trying to find 15 real magazines at a decent price for the sig. So yeah, they're all being. And yeah. And that's where you come in at what a lot of these things is like everything's a great idea, but can I get on the bartender? Can I get a host for it? Yeah. Does it have aftermarket support? I mean, yeah, it's all great. Good. You have this pistol, but you got a ten around my 13 round magazine or just a ten round mag. Slide in their 300 bucks for an off the cut slide. For the siegfried 65, but I was like, hey, I might as well buy another gun. Yeah, they're on crack. By the way. Yeah. Yeah, because the cheapest one is struck industries. I will sell it and buy the equalizer. And put a couple hundred bucks with it. I mean, that's my fault so far. What I've seen this. No, I got you. Put a cup of water bucks. Get three mags, and a gun is already optic cut. And so I don't have $800 in a gun. Before I even put an optic on it. Yep. I gotcha. So, yeah. What's the barrel length on this gun again? Just under it's like three eighths of an inch shorter than four inches. Three, 6, 7, 5 or something. It's somewhere weird length. Three and three quarters basically. I don't know. Yeah, yeah, because I was actually looking at it and comparing it to others. And where are we at with this? Again, brand level two can come in and if you didn't want to get a P 360 five, you got this. Same side. We say it and we've been saying it. We're living in the golden age of this whole firearm sting. And a lot of times when you're in the middle of something, you don't realize it. Now we're telling you until it's gone. Yeah, you realize it until it's gone. We're winning the middle of this right now. We have more options than any other time in the firearms industry, dude. I mean, the only time this much cool stuff was really humming coming at you as a gun owner was pretty much when they changed for Cassie caps and cartridges. Dude, a hundred percent. When I started carrying a gun, if you didn't want a 1911, you could get a Glock of this new Smith and Wesson M and P or this really knew XD from Springfield that was super awesome. Or beretta 92. Uber right in there. Yeah, you can carry, but I was in the Marine Corps at the time and I had a point of experience with that piece of which I have changed my opinion on post military, of course. You don't have a beat up for overwhelming. I didn't have one. That was cleaned more than it was shot. Anyways. But yeah, so yeah, absolutely. Right now, if you can't find a handgun, you like right now, I don't know what to tell you. Yeah. It's there. It exists. Striker fired sub compacts were made by everybody to the point savage and mass burger making. That's true. So that was the Smith and Wesson equalizer along with a bunch of other stuff.

"It sounds stupid. I have numerous of them for my kids, like the youth model savages and stuff. And they're beautiful. I don't have any kids. Well, you got luck. Building in kids. That's true. You don't know that. I have a dozen kids, so I got a bunch of 20 days. Hold on. First of all, sir. No, we're not talking about U.S. talking about resting. He's pull out game this week. You can't have babies that we can do that. Yeah, but listen, I leave everybody alone who has the guys who have the a 22 because they wanted a 22 look, leave them alone. They can shoot their Steven shotguns. They can shoot the a 22s and they can shoot their stance pistol from savage and enjoy themselves. I wonder if rusty has the stance pistol. That's probably where he went. To go grab it. No, I'm letting my dog in. Kiss my ass. He's comparing the stance pistol to his mosberg pissed off. Okay, so that's the savage. All he want and they still beat rob pink is to the frigging market. That's so true. So true. Rob's going to be the last. The last company on earth that comes out with 9 millimeters of copper. Single stat. Congratulations. He could be a 6 rounder. Dude, that would have been great if you came out with her. I don't know before to P 360 five and 2017. And rob's a friend of mine and I've been goofing all about this for 5 years. Well, I think everybody else does too. You finally got a hoster company today. Yeah, yeah, to make a holster for it. Okay, so that was the savage a 22 takedown. Next up is the new Smith and Wesson equalizer. You know, MSRP on this is 5 99, which I think is pretty decent. It's like 6 bucks cheaper than the easy. Which I just kind of gotta hit me. I was like, wait a second. It's like 6 flags cheaper. I just. I just don't get what you guys are doing here. But this is their new subcompact, easy, basically, but you know, it's a little different. It still has the grip safety. It does have a new design slide. 9 millimeter cuts on the front, back, has an optics plate. So they at least got all of that right. It's running from what I read. It's a somewhat decent trigger comes with three magazines actually, the ten rounder flush fit, the 13 and 15 rounder. It's an 18° grip angle. It's a pick rail on the front for lights. It does not have a thumb safety. It's got a loaded chamber indicator if you really care about that. It does have the easy to rack slide. Length is 6.75 inches. It's still the same width as the standard easy at 1.04 inches. But it's shorter, so it's four and a half inches tall. It comes with white dot site. As well as the adapter plate, like I said, it's stainless armor coat finish. It's a three .675 inch barrel weighs 22.9 ounces. And I looked into it because they don't mention it. They just say it's an adapter plate for optics. It's for the it's for the shield footprint. But it is a modified shield footprint, so it works with the hollow sun 5 O 7. 5 or 7 four O 7. For whichever one is their small one that goes on the shield footprint, but is slightly different. So those are the sites. They somebody will probably make adapter plates for it so you could mount other stuff, but for now, those are the sites, the optics that you can use on it. You know, I kind of like this gun. It appeals to me more than the standard easy. I mean, granted, you don't. Bless you. You don't get a full grip on it. But or some people won't. So that could make fracking the slide a little bit harder by itself, but you know, hey, it is what it is because it is a subcompact pistol. They call it a micro compact, but I don't know. I disagree, I think the appeal of the original easy design was the fact that it was large enough to control with the controls on the gun, able to manipulate it in that easier fashion. I think when you shrink it down to this, you're losing sight of what the original intent of the gun was. And I get you. And that might be why they called it the equalizer, not the easy equalizer or something. But for this, why wouldn't I go with any number of sub compact? I mean, I don't think I told you guys, but I'm the proud new owner again. Of a Caltech P three a key. Which I owned it 15 years ago. Yeah, I got it back. And I realized how much I hate that guy. I should have left in destroy it. But yeah, why if I really was super concerned with, I need the tiniest gun there is. Why wouldn't I go with something like that? I just feel like the kind of lost sight of the original intent of the guy and listen, I didn't well, they rushed this gun out. Personally. Of the easy. I understood what it was for, and I think it's a great design. It's not for me, but it's for a lot of people. I think they lost sight of its intent and its purpose with this. Model. But, you know, maybe I'm wrong. I think they roast this gun out to equalize out the train wreck of the CS or whatever that M single. Oh yeah, yeah, yeah. Whatever not the 11 is not the 11th compact they put out here a few months ago. Yes, yeah. But you know, you know, I didn't see any pictures of what it looked like with the 15 round magazine. Does it look like a tactical at the end with the 50 with a 21? What he looks like is sigma macro. The 360 five macro. So when you start putting these different magazine links in, which you go is from a 360 five size gun to a 360 five XL to a 360 five X macro. So that's what the change up is. I kind of agree when Zayn, when you talk about who you losing it, I want to see it and get my hands on it. I was looking for it in the gun store, but there wasn't the one that was on Saturday or Friday. So I want to get my hands on the thing. And compare it to the macro. But I live in this stupid state. So even the 15 round magazine length mag is going to be ten rounds. And I mean, if it gives you a thing, I mean, are they competing? Is this one pistol? Is this one pistol from Smith and Wesson competing with the entire sig P 360 five line? Yeah, I'd have to see it to find out. Maybe. I do like the fact they deleted the thumb safety on it because I don't really see a need for thumb safeties on guns that don't need them safety. Some guys do need them. This has a grip safety. But if this is in the same, this isn't the same. What am I trying to say here? The same hammer fired style. Wearing mechanism, the original EZ. Yes, if I remember correctly, the grid safety free cocked the hammer for you. Right? It was part of the firing mechanism. Yeah. So I understand that whatever. I did it right. So I was watching videos because what I wanted to do was find out pros and cons. Of the actual easy from people that run it. A friend of mine, Kellyanne pigeon who runs well on Roman. She was making a video about it. And she was talking about how the thumb safety is a detractor to the easy. Because it's not really needed, and people forget to run it. And also gripping the grip safety correctly every time is also a negative. So I don't know if they change any of the design of the grip safety, the angle or any of that to make it more common. But if not, it is what it is. I think it's a decent gun if it pulls off the things they wanted to pull off. But they have a serious swing and a miss with their CSX. And maybe they're trying to make up for it and get it out of the beginning of the year. Because they have so many people buying guns. Now,

"In the pistol grip, I guess. It's not a, it's not a true pistol grip, but it's made so you can store stuff in there. And then the top of the stock opens up. So you can store some more of the rotary magazines that are in there. I think it holds three, maybe. I can't remember which. I don't know why. Yeah, I think the picture had two in it, but I think it had, I think there was room for another one. And I can't remember if this is if they're like ten, 22 magazine copies. Three magazines in the stock. Okay, that's what I did. They're kind of like ten, 22 copies, I think, but they were not interchanged. Yeah, I've got one. Okay. Okay. But it's not the takedown, but I got an a 22. Okay. Okay, so that's good. It looks like it does come with a pick rail on top to mount to mount a red dot or whatever you want. You know, I just don't know about it. I'm not big into take downs and I'm like, proprietary magazines. It's just, I'm like, I like it, but I don't like it. We'll have to ask rusty how his non takedown shoots. I took mine to an apple seed shoot a few years ago. And there was a bunch of guys there with her custom ten 22s. I was the only person to shoot Rothwell and the first day. And I had to scope Oman and mom was a sporter version that come out of the box with the art side so that's the scope on it Saturday and the day before I went and went and shot and these guys had like fetters and barrels and all these other high end barrels and stuff on theirs. And I shot rafman within the first three hours of being there. And the only complaint I have about it is like you have to really pop the magazine in there. 'cause they will fall out. The mad cat on it is not that great. The trigger is a little spongy on them because they have it's supposed to be their adjustable trigger only. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah, the accu trigger on the 22s are not that great. They are a lot. You can hear them funk when you pull the trigger on there. They're not that great on the 22. But other than that, it's a great platform. It really is, if you want a good 22 that shoots a lot out, this thing is for you. I shut it out to 300. I got video, I think, on Instagram and Facebook one. I've shown that 350 yards and rung steel with it, and it will do it all day every day. And it's a great gun. I think their pitcher on their website is ridiculous, because these guys got the pickrell on top of it, and it's covered in the rear sides up and he's sided down on top of it. Well, that's what I'm looking at. Supposedly it's a U channel. One, so you can look through it and see the sights, but whatever. But and basically, this is just the takedown version, so if your backpack end and it's not like you need it quickly. That kind of like kills it for me, because I've got a bunch of Ruger ten 22 magazine. You see. The person that went with me had a rigger ten 22 and I've got probably two dozen river ten, 22 mags, and I wish they would work, but they're different. They're totally different mags. They look the same. Kind of sort of, but they're not. They're totally different magazines. No, it's somebody that's about savage products because the Stevens is a savage brand. I'm like, why would I buy this is through a ten 22 when I got all the aftermarket support you ever want on a gun that has over 10 million units so since 1964, why would I want your wish dot com version of a ten 22? Well, if you want the wish dot com version of the ten 22, you buy the Winchester. That takes ten, ten, 20, it takes ten, 22, but it takes ten to the Winchester takes the 22 mags. Yeah. Between 22 mags. So I have no idea what savage is thinking with this. We're not using the most popular rotary magazine now. How do you develop your own rotary magazine and not have it be interchangeable? And why? Daisy did it back in the day. I don't know if y'all remember the daisy 22 raffles the I can't remember. I've got one in the gun safe Lanier. Daisy and Ruger got into a lawsuit about it. I have a daisy 22 rifle in there with a rotary magazine and I have one magazine for it. If you go online to gun broker and try to find a magazines that are a hundred bucks for one rotary magazine because Ruger sued them over the magazine. Yeah, but they call us just as much as the takato mag. Yes. Yes. Yeah, but that was back. When the patent was still good, probably. Yeah, but I'm just saying, they came up with this gun and there is no reason for me to put this over a ten 22 that I can build and not even have one part on it. And spend as much as I want. Or I could have this thing from savage because of what name brand loyalty. I don't know. Savage fanboys. Yeah, so that's cool. I have mine. I have my savage a 22, and I have Ruger ten 22s. I really, when I go to the Woods and shoot squirrels, I take my a 22 because I know what it does and I really like it. And but I've got tricked out ten 22s in here, but I like my a 22. It shoots really good. The only thing I don't like about it is trigger and that's the only thing you can't change on it because nobody makes it after trigger. There's no aftermarket parts. Like what Tony said is the key. It really is. Name brand loyalty. Came out with 45 caliber pistol, savage guys are gonna get it, and that's a turkey. Carrie, because there's a generation of people that are brand loyal. This is marketed towards. Is it marketed towards me? Obviously not. 'cause I don't own a 22. 22 are stupid. But it's obviously not marketed to anybody here because if I were gonna own a 22, it would be a Ruger ten 22. Exactly. Or if you were yeah, but unless you wanted a bold action. They didn't if I wanted a bold action. I don't know what I'd get either. It's easy. Yeah, exactly.

"The clip doesn't look all that great though. I don't know. Well, the standard clip on the HLS is garbage. That's why I'm switched back on. Yeah, yeah, so this is garbage. Immediately, it's not just the clips that come on them are terrible. They either get mounted on a gun or they get a firm switch back and go in the pocket. Or Raven makes an O ring kind of attachment thing also. I enjoy stream light I've ordered them for years, stream light actually gave me some of the lights that I still use that I'm going to actually write up. Only because I beat the snot out of they've actually worked. And they're in PA. They write across the border here from Jersey. So I'm like, hey, check about see what's up, but yeah, the candela is not really that impressive on this, especially if it's going to be about $80. There's more than an HLS. And I'm like, bro, you're not getting that much more. You're getting the lowman, but really, when you're at a thousand, but you didn't Jack up the candela. What's a thousand another thousand ish 5, but really what's up? I'm blinding you with a thousand already. What is this? I wouldn't really complain if they came out with this. And they were using the same battery. The update, like, hey, these are updated light. You're gonna sacrifice 30 minutes of run time, but ride or a little more. But if you're thing is, hey, look, we got this new battery technology. Nah, I mean, I want to see 2500 lumens and 25,000 candela. Now we're talking. You know, obviously I'm assuming they put a lot of time and money into the R&D and developing this battery, almost they developed it, but somebody did, they put the time into making it work with their new stuff. I want to see really impressive numbers. Again, it's a, it is a better on paper light than the HLS. I just don't know if it's worth the hype. What is the shell? What is the shelf life? Of one of these lives when they're fully charged up. You're a lot you have. So you charge it up, you're sticking your pocket. And you don't use it until you need it. What is the shelf life of the battery? I have no idea. I mean, I'm just curious. Just a curious question, you know. I don't know. Yeah, I have no idea either. I mean, heck, I don't use mine every day, but it gets used quite a bit and it's like, I hardly ever have to charge the battery or change it out. Unless I do something crazy and actually click it on and leave it running in my pocket. Which you can do with a stream light without setting your pants on fire, unlike I don't know. Certain lights. That you know right away 'cause pants on fire pantalone. Man, what are you talking about? Oh, I don't know. They make knives down too, remember? I just, I swap a fresh battery in mine about once a week and then put the other battery on a charger. That's kind of where I'm at with it. But like I said, I have probably 8 or 9, 18 6 50 that live on a battery bank over there because I have a bunch of lights that use them. Yeah. That's the way to go. I don't know. I don't hate the light by any means. I think it's great, but I just, I'm not super impressed with, hey, we got this brand new battery technology and look how awesome the new light is because of it. Right. It's underwhelming. Yeah, I got you. Which stream like kind of, it seems like sometimes their lights are underwhelming. But they're reliable inexpensive compared to some of their competitors. 100%. Stream lights the best value to light ratio. Like, it's not the best light out there. Nor is it the cheapest light out there, but for the money you pay for the light, it's really hard to beat. So I don't want to be too hard on them, but I think this is, this is just kind of meh for me. Yeah. And also remember stream like didn't donate money to dianne Feinstein's campaign. That is a true statement. And they did donate and they did donate stuff to Tony. And they did donate some foot stuff to the second is for everyone. About 5 years ago. And my whole thing is understand what the frigging dealing and making your priority. I'm not telling you to cancel anybody, but just understand who you give you money to. Yeah. Yeah. And I mean, I have streamlined in my pocket. I got a streamline on shotgun, stream light on two rifles and a streamlined art pistol. See? There you go. I love stream lights. But this one is just, I don't know. Yeah, so. That was the stream light two. Handheld light. Next up, savage has brought out their a 22 in a takedown. And I don't know how this always works when Zayn shows up. There's a 22 on the show notes. I think he does it on purpose he waits. He's like, oh, I showed up for the light. Oh wait, there's a 22. He's a closet 22 person. I love him. So MSR, you said closet 22 person. So well, we all know we all know he's not in the closet anymore. Everything else. MSRP on this thing is $479. Of course it's I hate you guys. 22 long rifle. I told you, we treat you the same, no matter if you're here every time or once every 6 months. So, of course, this is like polymer stocked. rifle. It's running an 18 inch barrel. It's got low profile sights on it. High luster barrel finish. Yeah, yeah. And magazine capacity is ten rounds. It's right hand eject, basically. So it's not like you can convert it for left handed use, but it's a semi auto 22. So one in 16 twist barrel basically, it's got a cool little besides the takedown feature, which is pretty awesome. You can store stuff

"Part of me is like disappointed. It's a new light, our new battery. But at the same time, we've got to, we've almost reached the point of where our light technology is being limited by the batteries. Right, by an 18 6 50. Basically. Yeah. So okay, I'll save my battery thing until I see a little more. 2000 lumens is better than the thousand or 1200 DH Alexis. Not a ton more candela, I believe the hlx is about 1670, something like that. Yeah, I think you're right. And so you're not getting a little bit brighter, but you're not getting much more of a hotspot. Price is similar, I think this is going to be a little more expensive. A little more expensive. A little bit expensive. However, you can charge this light without taking the battery out with the HLS. You can not, you have to remove the battery, which I have like 8 batteries for mine, whatever. I'll probably pick one up, honestly. You know, 'cause I do like stream lights, I've had good luck with most of them. I do have a broken one over here on my shelf that I need to send back to them. But I wish they could have done a little more with the candela. Especially if it's new battery technology, I feel like you can get this lumen in this candela. Out of the 18 6 50. Like if you're gonna come out with a new battery because the battery limiting you, I want to see some really impressive numbers. And I just don't feel like these numbers are as impressive feel like they should be. For new battery technology. And I could be wrong. Again, I'm not an expert on said things, but, you know, I hear you.

"Well, you know what I'm saying? They killed that name. Freedom. Yeah, yeah. Freedom of Remington's freedom something? Yeah. So they killed that name and reputation. How are you on the third generation of that company? So what do I say? I say buyer beware. This is early. I know companies have to sell their stuff, but. Understand that they have an established themselves as making ARs, yeah. I forgot what the company was at Franklin armory. Yeah, they have their separate, but yeah, but Franklin armory was making a fin stabilized freaking birdie launcher a couple years ago, wasn't that him, but the thing with no rightful. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. So yeah, my whole thing is they were making quirky stuff, they have not established themselves, and for the money for a bushmaster for this would be maybe I'd check somebody else out until they established themselves. There's no reason to be beta tester for this company's ARs at this point. And I'm not saying anything bad about them. I'm just going, why would I go with you? And not anybody else who makes a four 50. So, you know, kind of, I don't want to derail the conversation, but Tony brings up a good point. And it really, it really hit me a couple of weeks ago because I was talking to you guys offline. I've gotten into some new hobbies lately and because of what I've done in the gun community and stuff that I've done with you guys and other people. I'm very skeptical of anything that's on the Internet. So when I'm brand new into a hobby that nothing about, I'm reading magazines, I'm reading Facebook post, I'm watching YouTube, and I'm like, oh, but I know for my experience in the gun world that none of this can really be trusted all that well. And I'm like, man, I need to find a good somebody I can trust and just tell me what's. So if you're new to the gun world, just understand that because the people on Facebook or on YouTube or hell, even us. Don't even trust us. I put do not take my word as gosh. Saying offline, I just recently got into scuba diving and I'm watching YouTube and I'm reading magazines and but I'm like, man, I don't I still don't know what's good and what's not good because just based on my experience in the gun community, there's a ton of good information. There's a lot more bad information. And you know how you can tell if somebody is hard to sort through it. You can tell if somebody's into scuba diving because they never shut up about scuba diving. Wow. Man. That's gotta be a firefighter. That was more brutal than you thought. Your mama statement. His age is getting ripped onto that. I come back for one show and it's like, oh. We just treat you like normal. You know that. I'm telling you. Okay, go ahead. It's something else. Why do we have a two stage trigger in here? Because it's their trigger. That's why. Okay. I mean, that's the only reason I can tell. And it's better than a bill spec trigger. Okay, I'll just ask you. Yeah, that's my guess. I bought two stage triggers. I think I still haven't been to ordinary after I've run them for a while. I'm like yeah, I'm with you. So that was the bushmaster bravo Zulu four 50. Next up is why Zane's here. Stream lights introduced the new pro tech 2.0. MSRP on this is a $195. Which, you know, MSRP of a stream light is never exactly what you end up paying. But like I said, this is their new 2000 lumen handheld light. They say it doesn't sacrifice runtime, but it's powered by a new proprietary SLB 50 battery pack. Charges inside or outside the light using a USB-C cord. So that's pretty much how it is. It still features their ten tap programming. So you can high strobe below only low, medium high, blah, blah, blah. Hi, it's 2000 lumens. They say a 262 meter beam and it runs two and a half hours. The medium setting is 5 70 lumens, 142 meter and runs four and a half hours, the low is a hundred lumens. 60 meter beam thrill and runs 25 hours, of course, the strobe for signaling and disorientation runs four hours, 25 minutes. It's IP 67 rated, so it does tighten waterproof to two meters. It's also two meter impact resistance tested. A run in 6000 series aluminum to make it. It's got an anti roll head, so it prevents the light from rolling away. Basically, it's got some flat spots on it, is what it looked like. The light length is 6.1 inches. It was 8.25 ounces with the battery pack, includes everything you need. Of course, a candela on it is 17,300. And of course, right now, all you get is black. So you can't have FDA or pretty colors like pink or something that Zayn would want. But I'm glad that they came out with a new one. Since what they have before, the HL or something that was 1200 lumens. Which I have my bag. What's in my pocket right now is an H LX. And I thought you were just happy to see me. No, no, no, not even a little bit.

"Just vary on what model you're getting the pros, great price. It's well made. There's no sharp edges. It's got a good fit and finish. The cons, the trigger pulls heavy, lack of aftermarket accessories, the form, opinions a little too long. The pistol grip is horrible. The slide release, I just couldn't get to it with that pistol grip there. I'm sure I could take a dremel tool and cut that water that pistol grip out so I can get to it. But all in all, it's a good shotgun, so I'll give it an overall score 7. See, okay, I've got two of them. I've got two of them, and they're on, I got them on sale over at tanners and PA for a $125 each. They go on sale every Christmas around that price. Or at least it used to be, who knows what it is now, but that place moves heavy volume. So their prices are really low. So I got a 20 gauge and a 12. The 12, excuse me, the 20 gauge has been used for four years. Introducing people to shooting shotguns at cherry ridge range because of volunteer for family day there. And we have, I go through cases of ammo in a day and the things never hiccup. And never been cleaned. And never been cleaned. So I've got a thousand rails to mine, and I've never walked it down since I took it out of the box. Yep. Nothing. And also, they didn't have a stupid long forehead because I was looking at yours. And they're regular shotguns. I don't like the pistol grips in my shotgun, 'cause they put all the shock into your risk and hand and that's just ridiculous. But the length of pull was a little bit long on my 12 gauge. So I contact them because this is what you don't know and like you said, the accessories thing was the problem. I got lucky. I called him up. I told him I was using it for a home defense shotgun, but the link to pull was kind of long. Do they sell youth model? Stocks. You saw stocks or shorties and they said no. A God lucky because they said they had a return of a youth. Stock and they sent it to me. So I installed that. So I have a shorter like 13, 12, 13, it's only the poll. It's really cool, man. These things run, they just run, do you depend your life on them? I don't know. I introduce people to firearms and I want them to have a good experience and I broke those out and they truly were more fun to shoot than the Remington. What is the Remington semi-automatic 8 87? 1187? 1186. 1187. Okay, yeah, 1187. They had Remington send me automatic 1180 7s there. I shot that and I was like, yep, this garbage stays in the rack and I'm using my pump action. So yeah, I agree with you. It's a good thing. I have taken mine on one of those specialized at an Air Force Base last year, and my daughter, she carried her moss bar 500 and I took this with me, and I've got 8 35 ultra mags and I've got an Ithaca or whatever. I've got different shotguns. I just grabbed this one and my red dot costs more than a green dot cost more than a shotgun did. And I was like, you know what? Let me take this. And I'll take it on bear hunts and hog hunts. And if I beat it up, so what? And I've taken it out in the canoe when I went on beer hunts and stuff like that. And I've dropped it in the water, whatever just walked it off. It still runs. And I'm happy with it. For a 199 bucks, so what? It runs. It's good. That's always good to know. Yeah, when I originally read the review, I was like, I'm like, oh, I'm like, that seems like a pretty good deal still. Yeah. I mean, I would recommend to anybody. One of the beauties of a shotgun is that it's one of the most affordable platforms you can get into for home defense and be set up well. If you want a car being for home defense, you can't really get set up at 5 $100 for a formidable, you know, gun. With this, you know, with this rusty and Tony, you're both saying you've got good reliability out of them. I don't have any personal experience with them. But tack on another 80 bucks for a light. And another 50 bucks for a shell card. You can get into something that's very formal for depending on your family way. I'm with you, rusty. I despise pistol grip. Shotgun. Oh yeah, they're terrible. They're terrible. I've had two, I had a pistol grip only, and I've had a pistol grip with a stock. And they're just, yeah, I like lynch going to pull, you know, like what you're talking about, Tony, a youth model, or in the case of mine, I took a skill saw to the end. And now it's 12 inches. And you know, whatever.

"105 9 or my 8 to 37. Or what have you? I do own a bunch of shotguns. They are tools to me. The M three 20 is a tool. It's just a cheaper tool that's been cloned from a really good tool that has been modified, you know, so what I stake my life on it, yes. I have it. I will continue. Every time I go into the Woods, the hunt big game, hogs, black bears, and I have the shotgun. I do trust my life with it. This is just my thought on how you take how you want. I have over a thousand rounds of high brass shales to cheap birdshot and they haven't had a malfunction yet. Now, it is smooth, but when I rack in, I run it like I'm trying to drive the forearm off of it. Just because something is made in another country and his budget doesn't mean it's junk. You do have to do your research and see for yourself. Don't go off one man's opinion and think that it's gospel. I'm just here to tell you how I feel about how the shotgun worked for me. One thing I didn't put in there, this gun will run the mini shells. It will load up and run a bunch of those meetings. I can't remember how many I put in here, but I think it was like non maybe.

"So, main topic tonight is, thanks to rusty. It's his review of the savage Stevens M three 20 security. So take it away, rusty. All right, so I bought this gun a couple years ago and I was trying to find a cup at fort and I just, you know, a stubby quirky. So a topic of this gut is to be Chinese, it has a nice rack. And so I'll go through this real quick. So don't laugh. I've been holding off on this review. Don't worry. They're better off on this review for several years now for numerous reasons. First, this is a budget shotgun and it falls in the same way. There's a lot of other shots in the market. Second of the spring there won't be interested in reading them. Third was the big C that was affecting everyone, but here it is. Let me dive into the model I have. Steven savage M three 20 shotguns. What can I say about it? It's based on the ode proving when Chester 1300 action, which has a rotating boat to cycle the shells, the picker one I have has a pistol grip boat safety. 18 and a half inch barrel with a hood front, fiber optic ghost ring rear shot, the receiver has 1913 to continue rail with formatting optics. The Mona bulk come with flat dark earth stock, hard rubber butt pad already has sling attachments on the front cap and the rear of the stock. Right in front of the four end are access points that are on both sides, they're 90° apart. They are not teens 13 rails as well for man, your favorite accessories to it. It has a 5 round yellow capacity for two and three quarters, but also has a capacity to hold three inches as well. The shotgun weighs in and around about 6 pounds with overall length of 32 and a quarter inches. The trigger pulls a bit heavy on mine, tripping the good gauge around about 7 pounds. The forum on the three 20 is a little longer than most tactical shotguns or home defense shotguns. Most of the ones I've encountered are about 8 to 9 inches. This one on the Stevens is roughly about 11 inches in length. Does it make a big difference? No, not really, just added weight. But hey, it has enough rack. So let's get to the shooting of the Chinese beauty with the big rat. I met at a swamp Fox liberator green dot on top of it just because I had one line around and figured why not. It was a great choice when I went to the reins. Remember this is a cylinder board choke, which means it's not constricted. Like most hunting shotguns, nor does it have interchangeable choke tubes. This shotgun was made for close work. That being said when I was at my local Wally world, they were selling ammo on the cheap. We'll also support. And they had other federal slugs will sell for two 50 a bucks. So I bought all they had. There were 200 rounds of three inch slugs and about 300 rounds of the Rio two and three quarter inch buck shot. And more than I can count of mixed bird shot. I was at the range. 50 yards on paper with a slugs, and I was getting great results. The best group I got was like a one in three quarter inch at 50 yards. I was pretty happy with that. We didn't have some 12 inch steel setup at a hundred yards back ring those every time with the slugs. After about an hour or brutal studios legs, I know I was closing my eyes and available to flinch. So I stopped shooting the three inch slugs. I went to something a bit louder and did what I could pattern about 40 yards with the buckshot. I was impressed with this spread that it kept that distance. I ran out of paper, so I spent the rest of my time shooting plastic bottles, bricks, logs, what I reckon with jug section of the range. So how did she just like a shotgun should it went bang? It destroyed everything that was in front of it. It ate the shells. Any of the shields are put in it. But here it is. There had to be one. I didn't tell you this. In the initial description, but it has a pistol grip. Absolutely hate pistol grips on shotguns down. My wrists felt like I punched a brick wall over and over. The direct impact into the web of my hand was terrible. Pistol grip made it so I could not get the slider release switch easily. If you had gloves on, it was, it was a no go. Now, the gun for what it is ran fine. It is smooth, the triggers a little heavy, the forearm is too long. If you want to put shale cord on the side of it, it will cover up the part of the receiver when the slot is back. You might not be able to use you might be able to use a four car shale holder, but not the one or ones. The form is a little weird in design. It is not what I'm used to, but

"Oh my God. Yeah. So it didn't work out too well. So I just took it apart and I got the screws and stuff all soaked in the air and I won't clean it up and we'll put them in a baggie. That's such, bro, but all the parts come out clean though. I mean, that modern Spartan system stuff cleaned everything up real nice. What I need to come and partner to come out. Yeah, because I mean, it really worked, but it really worked, but gotcha. Rob. See, I've been gone for two weeks, so two weeks ago, I was up in North Carolina with the family, did a little bit of hunting, give a little bit of shooting, to the good range time, some aviation stuff. Got to get some gear meat in my fridge and I'm making a nice year chili in my house smells like virtually because I've had a simmering all day. And then this past week, the storm out there, screwing me up last week, so I was deployed for that, but other than that, not a whole lot. Sweet, and I guess we can move on to Zayn, but by the sounds of it, he's only been shooting lionfish or something. Yeah, I've been rather busy down here. Like, rob said, we had that storm and we had the other storm hurricane Ian in my area. And I've been, I don't think I've been on it almost two months, and I have been completely swamped with hurricane fire department stuff. And the few chances I do get a way out, big old scuba diving lately. So yeah, shooting lionfish, but not really shooting guns. Whatever works, but you showed up today, so and Tony just released a podcast not too long ago, so I see the connection finally. Yeah. Well, good things come in threes, I'm told. What do bad things come in? Every day. Your mom. That's messed up. Is that Tony? What'd you do? Dude, I had an amazing Jesus that was vicious. I apologize. I had a great time, man. We had the diversity shoot on Marine Corps birthday. So we were in eastern PA and a couple guys said they were coming out, which I was like, great. Well, while I was speaking, we have slapped guns come out. And also we had Joe for shooting gallery, New England, come out. And they surprised me. Joe told me he was coming slav guns didn't. And that was cool. And then Christy showed up from the Heller foundation from the dick Heller foundation. She showed up with a birthday cake for the Marine Corps. So we had cake and pizza and it was cool and my friend Glen pap showed up and he had a suppressed Sten submachine gun that he brought with him and a suppressed sig MCX. So we had to really cool guns. We laid down some fire and that was awesome. We had some new people come out to the diversity shoot and it was great. That was Thursday. Friday, I participated in the police shooting competition, a PC, was a PCP PCC. Police combat competition, and we shot that, and I didn't have, I'm running low on 9, so if anybody wants to donate 9, they're doing any money to buy 9, that'll be great, go to diversity dot com. But I have plenty of 40, so I loaded up a high point, put it outside the waistband hoster, compete using my high point. That was interesting. There's a reason that's been put away for a really long time compared to every other gun I have. It's not ergonomic. It has a heavy slide. It's all that I still competed. I probably beat a few people, and I haven't shot that gun in years, and but it was still fun. I had a great time, and then our friend Eric showed up, and he had a CZ CheckMate. Now I know, that's like $3700 if you don't know. And we'd already cleaned up and we only had one target left. So from 25 yards, we took turns shooting this brand new pistol. It shot a really tight groups like the difference between student a high point issue and a CheckMate is ridiculous. It's like a whole never level. And then Saturday I competed in the Marine Corps heritage shoot. Up in cherry ridge range, which is AHA RPCs range, which is New Jersey's Second Amendment. NRA trap chapter. And I competed using M 16 a four clone with iron sights that I built that was actually a real Marine Corps DMR. And the company well, let's see the CEO in jail, the CFO is in jail. Because they violated itar. So I was able to buy pretty much an M 16 a four minus the lower. I mean, minus the lower receiver. So stock grip, everything else. And I shot and actually won my category of iron sights at a hundred yards. So that was pretty cool. So that's what I did a lot against that. Sweet. So, bandwidth sponsors our buddies over at patriot patch go. We got their patch of the month. You got all these cool patches and stuff that looked like stickers and, you know, super cool, you got a turkey with a grenade and you got the American defense ones.

I did get some stuff in. In fact, we talked about this a time ago. This is the primary arms SLX four to 16 first focal plane. You know, the one that's like 300 bucks. So it's not mounted up yet. I mean, it literally just came in yesterday or something. So, you know, it's here. It's pretty cool. And it looks pretty clear looking through it. But yeah, it's pretty amazing for 300 bucks, so let's see. I think that I got something from unique ARs too, but it's somewhere I can't get to, so, you know, we'll do that. That's essentially all I did. So you guys can have the floor. For me, I did. I did some shooting with my sig 360 five. I run some just got out and practiced with it. After playing around with it the other day and worked to know that code work assignment hoster I have and that I cleaned it with a client supplies I got in the mail the other day. And then I destroyed a good black powder revolver. Destroyed, huh? I guess it didn't work, huh? Tony, you will be getting some parts of the male trigger guards and grips. Trigger hammer. If I get the barrel out, you can have the barrel. Down rod that goes into the cylinder. I tried to put a little pressure on it with a ball peen hammer and a punch.

Diplomatic Pouch

"It's time for another installment of sea hunt. It still alive here on scuba shack radio. And this time. We're going back to season three episode thirty eight titled diplomatic pouch diplomatic pouch premiered on september twenty fourth nineteen sixty. Well in this episode. Mike is back in a latin american country named san miguel. His mission is to retrieve a diplomatic pouch from crashed american airplane. The show opens up with mike searching the wreck while his buddies on the surface appearing to be fishing as luck would have it. Mike find the pouch and starts to head to the surface. There's a great shot of the voight swim fins as he ascends but just as mike breaks the surface he's confronted with an armed boat of officials who are pointing their guns at him and asking him if he would be so good to come on board what to do. Quick thinking mike takes a fix on his position and drops the pouch. Who are these armed men. The guy in charge is colonel ramirez and he is the head of the coastal defense. He's cold and tough and goes over. Mike's gear with a fine toothcomb. Just then mike's friend. Paul alexander pulls up with their boat. He tells mikey sorry. That he drifted. The boat drifted off process that they are on vacation. And he's from dallas texas. Colonel ramirez tells them that they are not to dive on the downed airplane at an at the penalty by order of the dictator row. All as is that they will be immediately deported. They are welcome to fish. Just stay away from the airplane. So now paul and mike are on the bridget or boat and paul is upset about the diving when might tells him he found the pouch but he had to drop it. He says he took a position. And we'll be able to find it. But how will that be possible with the colonel watching pause. Got a plan. But mike wants to know i. Where did he get that phony. Southern accent well. Paul's plan involves dragging mike to a local cantina. The club kellyanne. Tae sign is flashing on and off as they enter once inside. They sit down in the bartender heads over the jukebox. A stereo phonic rockall roller and plays a record loudly before waiting on and paul. Something's the bartender nods and mike and pau get up and head for the back room. The ace of pulse leave is one of colonel ramirez. Deputy familiaux who calls the kernel. A pig who goes beyond the law familiar will fight with his fingertips to overthrow the hated dictator. The plane is to get. The plan is to get information from familiaux on whether the colonel is going to put a diver on the wrecked plane. Now the the scene shifts to mike and paul on the water and they're trying to get to the wreck but they're constantly being pursued by the coastal defense. Just then shots are fired from the defense boat. And they're colonel comes alongside and tells them that the penalty for diving on. The wreck is no longer deportation. It's death before they leave familiar hotels. Mike and paul that they are going to have another diver coming from the capital. Soon we now had back to the cantina. We're familiar comes in the bartender. Nods towards the back room in the room familiar hotels mike composite. The situation is desperate. what can they do. Mike knows he will be an underwater hitchhiker. But only familiar can drop a line over the side of the colonels boat you see. Mike can swim to the rack but he needs a ride back. Familiaux says it will be done. So now we have paul mike on their boat watching a coastal defence boat with its diver onboard and her headed out to the wreck plane. Mike tells paul if anything happens he needs to get out of there because he's too valuable. Paul reluctantly agrees as mike. Put the powder into his wetsuit top. Once the divers from the colonel Once the diver from the kernels boot jumps in. Mike is in the water swimming towards where he dropped the pouch. He sees the line. Familial has tossed over the side but now he needs to pop to the surface to get his bearings so he can find the diplomatic pouch just before the men on the boat turn towards mike. He slips beneath the surface a close call. Mike is now underwater searching and searching trying to find the pouch before the enemy divers season. Finally he spots the pouch intact and now he needs to get it out now. Here's where it gets a little strange. Mike is kneeling on the bottom looking at the patch. Trying to figure out and then like maybe how to open it or something. He's got a puzzled look on his face. His back is towards the plane wreck. As he's puzzling over the pouch the enemy divers spots him pulls out his knife and be lines towards mike as he tries to stab. Mike looks like the pouch gets in the way we are now witnessed to a classic underwater knife flight where mike wrestles do knife out of the bad guys hand takes out his own life and you guessed it cuts who's hose. The enemy divers forced to the surface and mike heads under the colonel's boat too high policies the diver surface in figures. There's a problem so he starts to head out. Mike is trying to figure out what to do with the diplomatic pouch when he decides to stick between his back and his doubles now. The colonel suspects that mike is with paul so he starts out in hot pursuit. Mike grabs the line and his underwater hitchhiking begins. The ride is challenging. You can see the strain on his double hose thins. Just as he's about to let go the boat slows down and pulls alongside. Paul familiar searches the boat and said no one is aboard. Paul says he just wants to go home as this is no place for a vacation. That colonel tells them to get out of his country. Once colonel leaves. Paul is despondent at the thought of losing mike just any. Here's mike call out. I think i heard him call pau. Alex i'm not sure. But as paul looks over the side mike tosses up the diplomatic pouch telling him. He forgot his laundry. Mike has yet again the day now. There wasn't any indication in credits as to where this episode was film. The plane wreck looked pretty authentic with the large propeller and debris. I wonder if this was. In the bahamas. So there you have it. Diplomatic pouch from season three of sea hunt.

"This is wet notes here on scuba shock radio for monday. September twenty seventh two thousand and twenty one first up. I want to congratulate tech clark and a dive locker. Podcast on celebrating the second anniversary for those who don't know about this. Podcast tech. Started this to help die professionals with various topics and techniques. But it's not just for dive professionals. I remember listening to the first episode. Way back in two thousand nineteen just before dima that year i've come to look forward to each weekly episode tech plans to keep the show going and has teed up a lot of great new content for the year year ahead. So i'd encourage you to check out the dive locker podcast. There's a lot of great information and perspective on things that hopefully will give you something to think about. Scuba shack is a proud patron of the dive locker. By the way tech also hosts a podcast titled the league of extraordinary divers. Where you can listen to some of the giants of our industry. Great job tech. Keep it coming now. I don't know what it is. But i seem to be a sucker for a message in a bottle story. So here's another one this time. The story involves a bottle that was washed up on the shores of the big island of hawaii. The bottle started his journey thirty seven years ago from japan and it was put in the water by school children. As part of an experiment in monitoring ocean currents the number of bottles were cast into the ocean in nineteen eighty-four from choshi highschool hawaii's about six thousand kilometers or four thousand three hundred miles from the launch point now. The bottle was found by abbie graham while her family was visiting a beach near hilo. It is estimated that about seven hundred and fifty of these bottles were tossed into the ocean between nineteen eighty four and nineteen eighty five. The last time one was found was in two thousand and two on kake. Jima island overall. The bottles have been found in seventeen. Different locations including okinawa the philippines china and even the west coast of the united states. I just get fascinated by these stories and often wonder just how many messages in bottles are out there in the ocean now. Last week we got an email from the clearly clearly came in resorts and it wasn't good. News clearly came in resorts include cobalt coast on grand cayman. Little came beach resort and cayman. Brac beach resort. The news informed us that the cayman borders will remain closed until two thousand twenty two. Now that's tough at a recent press conference to premier indicated that phase. Three of the original plan will start sometime. In february given the rise in cove in nineteen cases the resorts are now planning on opening on february. Fifth two thousand twenty two. Now this has been a really tough situation. If you remember way back in april i reported that the plan was to open in late april or early may two thousand and twenty one. It's been a long and difficult road for a lot of places. Surely the caymans are feeling abroad. We hope it gets resolved before october. Twenty twenty two trip yet. That on certain there's been a great deal of communication coming from tom. Ingram the president and ceo of dima the dive equipment marketing association regarding the two thousand twenty one show in las vegas. Tom unequivocal be states. That the show has absolutely no plans. Of cancelling now they did indicate that accordance with the local health mandates. Everyone will be required to wear a mask on the exhibit floor. There are several large past exhibitors. Who are forgoing the show this year causing some to question whether it should even take place. I know we've been getting a lot of surveys from our vendors as to whether we plan to go or not right now matt and i will be there. Tom indicated that it would be extremely difficult to cancel at this late date. Given the contracts that are in place and that if it were cancelled it would seriously impact demon's ability to put on these shows in the future. So we're looking forward to a successful show this year out in las vegas and finally today. I wanna talk about a piece of underwater camera gear that you might just want to consider. There was an article from sport diver magazine by john widow titled great camera accessories for underwater photography. It was a scuba lab review of the products that the staff took diving at alexander springs in central florida. First on the list was a sea life. Sport diver smartphone housing. Now that's pretty cool. I can remember my first. Underwater camera was sealife. Reef master with a whopping three mega pixels now. This housing will fit a number of iphones and android smartphones. The housing is bluetooth enabled and his rate it to one hundred and thirty feet. The sea life sport diver smartphone. Housing comes with a vacuum seal and duly alarms when you purchase the housing. You'll get a free app that will give you access to most of your phones. Usual camera functions also included is a red filter. And if that's not enough to housing allows you to put in those sealife life color changing moisture. Munchers he i remember those now. The housing isn't cheap. It retails for two hundred ninety nine dollars and ninety five cents. Us but if you wanna travel light and still get some great underwater shots of your adventures check out the c. Life sport diver smartphone housing at sea. Life fash cameras dot com. Well that's it for this edition of wet notes here on scuba shack radio.

The Chester A. Poling

"Today. I'm going to do something a little different for this installment of your next dive normally tried to take you to a dive destination where we talk about the trip from a number of different perspectives. The travel the lodging the dive operator. Oh yeah the diving. Now we've been around the world. But today i'm going to focus on one particular dive that is almost in our backyard. It is one of the most iconic dives here in new england and that is the wreck of the chester. Polling off gloucester mass. The chester polling was a coastal tanker. That sank in a brutal storm on january tenth. Nineteen seventy seven. The tanker had just left everett massachusetts and was bound for newington new hampshire. That information is pretty consistent in the research but there is other conflicting information about where she had been. And what cargo she delivered for example some documentation said she had previously delivered kerosene to new jersey while others indicated that the heating oil was delivered to everett mass. I would suspect that delivery to everett mass to be more likely always interesting when you Doing research to get this type of inconsistency now the chester polling was bill in nineteen thirty four at mariners harbor new york by united dry docks incorporated it was originally in the plattsburgh sacconi somewhere along the line at also known as the mobile albany before getting renamed as the chester polling at the time of its sinking it was owned by the motor vessel polling brothers and that was number one inc. I wasn't able to find who was actually named after but obviously some member of the family. So that's a little bit of history about the ship now on january tenth. Nineteen seventy seven capital captain. Bert charles burgess was in command. The forecast for that day was for thirty five mile an hour winds along with fifteen to twenty foot seas. the chester polling chester. A polling left. Everett are left everett at six thirty. A m well as we all know. Forecast can be wrong. The winds built up to fifty miles per hour and to seize goddess highs. Thirty feet facing the mounting sees captain. Burge's tried to get more stability by adding more ballast but at ten thirty a m a thirty foot waves smashed into the tanker and broke it in half the captain called for abandoning the ship. Six of the seven members of the crew were saved. I believe it was the cook jail. Derosa from providence rhode island who perished the sir. The stern section of the chester polling came to rest off easter point gloucester originally in about seventy five feet of water with the bow section sinking about four miles off of eastern point in about one hundred ninety feet of water subsequent winter. Storms move the stern section to its present location about eight hundred yards off of eastern point about ninety five feet of water. I think the bottom might be a little bit deeper than that. However the stern section of the chester polling is what some folks call hollywood wreck sitting upright and is probably the most popular wreck dive off. Cape ann as that areas known. Now i- i dove the chester polling way back in july two thousand and five. It was my fortieth dive and a double dip on. The polling was part of my advanced open water class. These dyes would constitute my deep and wreck advanced. Open water dives. At that time. I was still diving in a seven. Millimeter wetsuit with the appropriate gloves and hood. I use the standard aluminum. Eighty tank with nighthawks. Thirty two. I can still remember the anxiety that had doing. The first real wreck dive in the northeast but once in the water what an amazing dive the visibility that day was thirty feet and my max step was at eighty five. Even though it was july the water temperature on iraq was fifty degrees. It was incredible to move along the deck and reach the mid mid ship section where. The tanker broken half absolutely mesmerizing but with an aluminum. Eighty you don't get much bottom time and after about fifteen minutes we headed back to the up line and after are appropriate safety. Stop we climb back aboard the boat and got ready to do it again. Total dive time was twenty six minutes the second dive that day was just as spectacular and pretty much the same profile. Let me just say in a wetsuit. It can get pretty chilly. I didn't go back to the chester polling until august. Two thousand nine and that was my last trip there. It was my two hundred and forty ninth dive but this time i did it in a dry suit and hope to get some good video of iraq. I still dove aluminum. Eighty the dive was just as i remembered and just as exciting visibility again was thirty feet. And my max. Depth was eighty two with and the bottom temperature. That day was forty eight degrees still very cold but so much better in a dry suit again however with an aluminum eighty. You just. Don't get much bottom time especially if your task loading like shooting video so my recommendation is that if you are planning to die the polling you might want to consider a little bit bigger tank something like a steal one hundred or going to doubles. I know that i wouldn't consider going back with anything less than a steel one hundred tank. How do you get to the chester polling back. Then we use cape and divers but they closed up several years ago and recently the dive boat cape and diver to was purchased by several guys from boston. An air now operating regularly chart regular charters again became an diverse to is a forty five foot. us coastguard registered dive vessel. It is spacious and right now with limited divers on board you get plenty of room to get ready and dive but you don't get a lot of but you don't get a lot of time because you don't have a lot of time to get ready because the is only a few minutes from the dock so be prepared one thing. Different about northeast wreck diving. Is that as a diver. You need to bring all your gear that includes tanks weights everything. It's not like diving at a resort. Don't get caught short by not being prepared with all your own stuff now. Here's an interesting element. That i discovered during my research. It appears that in nineteen sixties. The chester polling was length lengthened. By maybe twenty six or so feet. That doesn't sound like much. But at the time of her sinking her length with two hundred and eighty two feet so that lengthening was about ten percent of the original ship's length could this have been a contributing factor for the ship splitting in half. I wonder so if you happen to be in the area of cape ban in gloucester massachusetts. You might wanna look up cape and diver to and head out for a double dip on the chester a

So and the reason why i like doing that during this time of year as because when you fly in the lower forty-eight during the summertime in the month so you really have to deal a lot with you know whether deviations and you know just just marginal weather at different airports and that just rather not deal with that right now so just go out to the islands. The flight over the ocean is easy. You get down to the island side. Sometimes it's a little windy. But i like the challenge and the layovers great. Because you know you're down to the beach. I go snorkeling scuba diving. The great all the lay the layover sometimes. Not as long as we'd like it to be so you really have to be careful as far as your your rest To do the The trip back so been doing that. and then on on my days off Coming back here. Phoenix have been working very very hard on the house. can getting ready to list it and all that so we're trying to trying to upsell this place So been working a lot on that as well so a lot of things going on and i know that the rest of the group oftentimes they record on.

A Look at Farallon Industries

A Look at Farallon Industries

"Couple of months ago. I told you about a guy who dropped off some vintage scuba quip at the shop. One of the regulators was an old poseidon cyclone and that spurred me to segment on poseidon here on the show. I also mentioned that the cyclone was complete with a set of farallon gauges and that there were a pair of farah line fins that were unfortunately torn so they got me thinking about doing some additional research on fairlon and doing a segment here on the show. I gotta tell you. Researching on industries was a bit of a challenge. It was difficult for me to piece the information together. So some of this may be a little bit out of sequence. Let's start at the beginning. Or what i think is the beginning from my research. I believe it was somewhere around. Nineteen sixty nine. That guy named ralph osterhaudt was working on a diver propulsion vehicle or dp that he called the mark one. It seems that this was pretty successful. Product and the us navy decided to purchase two dp marquand from ralph and it appears that that's when he started foulon industries. Farallon is the name of a small group of islands about twenty six miles due west of san francisco. I wasn't familiar with the farallon islands but found out some interesting stuff about them from what i read. They were originally called the islands of the dead by native americans and then given the name farallon meaning cliffs by the spanish. I'm not exactly sure. Why ralph named is company farallon industries. Farallon was based in belmont california which is between san francisco in palo alto on the san francisco bay side. The address was listed as one three three three old country road. But when i google map data address it came up with one three three three county road now. I like to take a look at the street view at these locations to see what it looks like today and today one three three three county road in belmont california looks like a self storage facility. One of the ways that i researched founded on industries was to look back at old trademark registrations impacts when registering a trademark or patent near sometimes a description of the business on one of those registrations the businesses described as as a california corporation producing goods and services for skin and scuba divers equipment namely self-propelled vehicles for transporting scuba divers. Interestingly i saw a fair aligned dp up for auction just yesterday. I think one of their most famous patents was also in early one. It looks like it was around seventy one and that was the shock dart famous because of its uses a prop in nineteen seventy five blockbuster draws the shark dart is described in the patent as a compressed gas injector weapon including parts. Therefore you may also see these come up for auction from time to time and complete rig gets pretty pretty expensive now. There were a whole lot of patent issued to caroline industries in the nineteen seventies. It looks like it looks like there was another row involved with foulon who is also inventor and that was ralph sham champion in an old article that i read who's identified as the president of farah line industries and was listed on a number of different patents. So let's take a look at some of these products in one thousand nine hundred seventy four. It looks like they submitted a patent for a decompression indicating instrument and it said it was an analog computer then in one thousand nine hundred seventy five. They produced a pressure gauge and started to design fins over time. They introduced the farah thin the fahrenheit which was a rechargeable hand-held light and then in one thousand nine hundred seventy eight farallon industries was issued a patent for a pilot regulator that said it incorporated a novel valve assembly in the second stage in the form of a unique main diaphragm valve and a pilot valve assembly. Now i did try to trace. What actually happened to farrell on. There's some indication that it was acquired by a company called tacna. But if you look on the oceanic website they say that. Bob hollis took a big step forward with oceanic when he acquired foulon industries around nineteen seventy six giving oceanic full line of scuba equipment with an innovative line of instrumentation products. I'm not exactly sure when oceanic stop branding their products with the farallon logo. I did find a price list and catalog. from nineteen seventy eight. They're still showed a lot of the farallon. Products including their low profile pragmatic mask their patented molded mouthpiece swim snorkel. The farah light farah fins and all their instrumentation they were also still producing four versions of their diver propulsion vehicle. The mark to the mark sri mark for mark five. Interestingly in that cadillac. I did see that. Both the farallon. An oceanic logos were shown together. And oh by the way you could still get the shark dot and he came in two flavors the magnum supreme in the magnum super. Well i knew. When i started this research on farallon line industries that would be a little more challenging than some of the other companies that i've researched farah line. Industries wasn't around very long but it looks like they did some really interesting

"This is what notes here on scuba shack radio for sunday. July eighteenth two thousand and twenty one first up. Today is an update on the upcoming boston. Sea rovers clinic. Historically the clinic was held in the early part of march just before the start in the northeast dive season. The show actually happened in march. Two thousand twenty just before the country shut down it was probably the last scuba diving show before cove. It wasn't possible to conduct the clinic in march. Two thousand twenty one as we were still at a high point of covy nineteenth spread infections so the decision was made to move the show to the first weekend of october in two thousand twenty one fall in massachusetts. That should be pretty neat. Tickets are on sale now for the boston. Sea rovers to day clinic in danvers massachusetts. Right now the early bird special is still available. You can attend the daytime. Saturday and sunday clinic along with the saturday night. Film festival for seventy five dollars. You can pick and choose your options and that's a pretty good deal. Don't wait check out the boston. See your oversight for all the details and get your tickets now now. Here's something new to help you with your fish identification. It's something called name that fish dot com name. That fish dot com was created by a guy named jake easterling and he is the co founder of a company called scuba. School botox mission is to reduce the cost and time requirements to monitor coral reefs by using artificial intelligence autonomous underwater vehicles and citizen science. I guess and of course this work. Jake developed a database of fish and came up with the idea of taking people's underwater video footage and identifying fish in the video. If you go to the name net fish dot com website you can view short video on what the finished product looks like. Jake also has assured Tutorial on how to make a submission the site says it will accept dot m. p. four emo v dot j. peg in png files. Max file. Size is one hundred megabytes and must be at least seven hundred. Twenty p or higher processing time is one to five days the more fish more processing the rare species. The longer it takes to verify and if your quality isn't that good don't be don't need more time to process. There's a little bit of disconnect on pricing. Jake says into in his short tutorial that you can set any price you think is best but there's also a button that says it costs three ninety nine in any event. Why don't you just go out and take a look at name. That fish dot com. I recently hadn't really interesting email. Come across my desk a few days ago and it was from reef divers. If you're not familiar with reef divers they operate with the clearly came in resorts. Cobol coast on grand came and the little cayman beach resort and the beach resort. They're known for their valet diving. Well reef divers is expanding our operation in the caribbean to turks. Keiko's now they are partnering with east bay resort on south. Keiko's it looks like they plan to be up and running there by late. August east bay resort sits on a mile long beach and boasted. Every room has a beach view. To get south goes she'll need to fly into providence jalis and then you can take either a short air hop over or board the ferry. It's not that long of a ride resort officer an all inclusive option. That seems pretty good reef divers outstanding operator in the caymans so sure that you can look forward to superior valet service from nemo turkson. Keiko's as well so many places to go diving. What it dilemma. Just about every week. Get an update from michael light. Any contains various tips and tricks for better underwater photography plus they also provide some product updates but also in this email is some other interesting information last week. They introduced me to an organization called washed ashore and the articles title said using discarded plastic to save the ocean. Now washed ashore. It is a five. Oh one three or c three nonprofit arts and environmental education organization aimed at bringing to light the world's plastic pollution problem. Well how well washed ashore started by angela ponzi who is a lifelong lover of the ocean and after the death. Her husband from a brain tumor. She turned to the ocean for healing. What she also found was that the ocean needed healing as well so she turned her artistic talents into creating sculptures. That are marine-related using the plastic. That is washed up ashore and they do some spectacular sculptures. I was also amazed by the fact that they have over fourteen thousand volunteers. Working with washed ashore. These are not small sculptures. Either you can check them out at washed ashore and take a look at some of their work. You will be amazed well. I'm sure that we've all heard about the billionaires who are competing to go into space amazing stuff for someone who grew up at the start of the space race in the nineteen sixties. But there's also another race going on and that's the race to build the world's deepest pool at the top of the list. Right now is deep dive. Dubai located in nod al sheba. Which is fifteen minutes from downtown dubai. It's an amazing sixty meters deep. That's one hundred ninety seven feet and contains fourteen million liters of water or three point. Seven million gallons. The pools constant thirty degrees celsius or eighty six degrees fahrenheit. It is team doesn't abandon sunken city. Now that's pretty cool. They have an onsite hyperbaric chamber restaurant gift shop and dive shop. Put this in perspective. The other deep pools around the globe include. Why forty in italy at forty two point one five meters deep spot in poland at forty five point four meters and there's either one coming online or it's online and crom cornwall england. That's called blue vis at fifty meters deep. I wonder if there's some kinda limit on just how deep can build a pool. I'm sure we'll be amazed and finally today. Here's another message in a bottle story. this time. It comes from michigan. It seems that jennifer dour the owner and operator of nautical north family adventures of scuba snorkeling. Glass bottom boat company was cleaning a windows on her glass bottom boat in the cheboygan river when she spotted the bottle inside. The bottle was a message from ninety. Five years ago it read will the person who finds a bottle return his paper to. George morrow cheboygan michigan until where it was found. The message was dated november. Nineteen twenty six. Jennifer posted this on social media and george morrow daughter michelle who's now under seventies reached out michelle indicated that her father was probably eighteen years old when he put the message out. There sounds like the battle didn't travel very far. However now i wonder just. How many messages in bottles are out there. Well that's it for this edition of wet notes here on

"This is wet notes here on scuba shock radio for sunday july fourth two thousand and twenty one first up today i wanna talk about re fest two thousand and twenty one this october. The reef environmental educational foundation will again be holding refenced from thursday october fourteenth to sunday october. Seventeenth in key largo. That's four days of some great activity. The festivities kickoff on thursday. And one o'clock. You can then get a couple of days of diving in on friday and saturday morning with a two tank dive from either key divers amaury dive resort or essence. Those charters run about ninety dollars and they go out at eight am. If you wanna do a kayak tour you could also do that. For sixty dollars with florida bay outfitters. There are seven afternoon workshops and seminars and activities at john pennekamp park the coral reef restoration foundation. The history of diving museum and the florida keys. Wild bird sanctuary. Wow this sounds like a great event. Unfortunately i won't be able to make it down due to a family obligation but this sounds really good. Be sure to check out repressed. That's reef fest. Two thousand twenty one on their website. Well who watches the tv. Show curse of oak island. I think matt has watched every episode. And i think they're still searching for treasure but i came across an interesting article about one of the guys on the show. I guess tony sampson had a strange situation happen about a year ago tony's frequently on the show and he runs a tour company called salty door. Salty dog tours. Well he was taking some tourists out when one of his guests hat blew off so quickly turned the boat around to fetch the hat. And that's when he spotted something else a voter in the water. Apparently the boater was on his maiden voyage with this new boat when it capsized and he couldn't get to his life jacket because it was tied to the boats seat ono so tony fortunately rescued the voter in what is called the oak island triangle triangle. I guess the boat subsequently washed up on oak island now at least those guys found something there about a year ago. Olympus announced that they were getting out of the digital imaging business and that they would not be making cameras any longer and that would have been a shame if these Tech this technology went by the wayside. I really liked my Olympus t g six. well don't worry. A new company named 'em digital solutions is producing the old olympics. Cameras binoculars audio gear. They took over in january. Two thousand twenty one. Their website is get olympus dot com. Now if you want to know more about the company checkout oem dash digital solutions dot com. This company is based out of tokyo. And it's led by sha guinea saga motto all digital solutions employees about two thousand people with evaluation of twenty seven billion yen or about three hundred and thirty three million. Us dollars the oem comes from the nineteen seventies oem solutions that they put in place to make cameras smaller more rugged and quieter. This is great news especially for us olympus fans. Here's some sobering news out of florida. The manatees are under stress as of june fourth. This year. Seven hundred and eighty two manatees have died in two thousand twenty one alone and that's a one hundred and fifty one percent increase from the three hundred and thirty one that died during the same period last year to put this in perspective. The record number of deaths for manatees in a year is eight hundred. Twenty one or eight hundred and twenty four and that was in two thousand eighteen. This increase is so dramatic that representative vern buchanan from florida wrote a letter to the us fish and wildlife services to change their status from threatened to endanger and that's the highest level of protection here in the us. The florida manatee used to be on the endangered list until two thousand and seventeen when their numbers rose. Above six thousand six hundred they now estimate a census of about seventy five hundred but as we can see that number is going in the wrong direction. Now what's the cause food availability. The seagrass is being killed off by oversaturation of nutrients and the manatees simply. Starve to death. Not sure how a change in status will solve the sad scenario but we need to start someplace. Well it's summer. And i know that a lot of people like to catch up on summer reading while they're on vacation we'll scuba diving. Magazine just published a list of books that you might consider in their armchair adventure section. A couple of book stood out. One of them was in oceans deep courage innovation and adventure beneath the waves. And that's written by bill steve. And it's a history of our underwater presence. He covers submarines saturation diving and recreational gear. Bill also goes into the impacts of aro vs versus in-person exploration. You can pick up this book in ocean deep for about fifteen dollars in paperback. Now the second book is exploration deep ocean the first descent to the bottom of all five of the world's oceans and it's written by josh young. The book covers the exploits of victor scovill and his team on their history-making mission. You can find this book in hardcover for a little over twenty one dollars time to kick back with some good summer reading and finally here on wet note if you're a collector of vintage gear or want to start mark your calendar for the vintage scandal auction on july seventeenth.

Your Next Dive - Key Largo

"Last year my goal was to do a segment of your next dive where i featured key largo dive mecca here in the united states. I wanted to time this segment for just after we returned from key. Largo in april of two thousand and twenty. Well we all know how that turned out. We did not get there and again in two thousand and twenty one. We were not able to plan out an excursion as we would have hoped to. Two thousand and twenty two however is on the horizon. But i didn't wanna wait any longer to talk about key largo so here we go with your next dive where we travel to key largo florida. I think i've mentioned it before here on the podcast that my first is after getting a certification where with it's a dive located at the marriott hotel on the overland highway in key largo and it was fantastic. How about your first real dive being on a real historic wreck the city of washington a ship that was in havana harbor when the us main exploded and sank now. There are many reasons to choose key largo as your dive destination. Especially if you live in the eastern part of the united states first off. It's easy to get to. You can either fly into fort lauderdale. Which is my preferred airport. As i find it logistically navigate or miami which is a little closer to key Key largo you just hop in your rental car. That is if you can find one these days and head on down now. Let's talk a little bit about the dive. Operators in key largo as you can imagine being to dive. Mecca that it is. There are quite a number of operators to choose from it's a dive at the marriott is no longer operating but i will talk about two of the operators. I'm familiar with. They are horizon divers and rainbow reef now right after only a couple of months. After i did that first trip to key largo i returned and at that time. I drove with horizon divers back. Then they were located in marina at mile marker one hundred of the overseas highway and that was right next to the courtyard by marriott. Which at the time was a radison. It was very convenient to roll out of bed. Get a quick bite to eat and stroll over to the dive. Shot horizon has moved however and they are now located on the overseas highway at mile marker. One oh six. That's the dive shop in a retail store. Their boats are located about a half a mile up the road next to a place called shipwrecks oceanside now rainbow reef has taken over the old horizon diver facility at the mile marker one hundred marina additionally they also bought out ocean divers on the other side of the marina and have quite a large operation. Now the last time we were in key largo. We stayed at the courtyard and dove with horizon. We were going to go back to key. Largo in two thousand twenty and planned to die with rainbow reef. We didn't make it down there now. If you're looking to do more technical diving then. I think horizon divers maybe a better choice for the shallow reefs that i like rainbow reef might be a good option as they have those big forty six foot newton dive boats now. I have to admit that. I've never done the deeper wrecks down there like spiegel grove. Where the dwayne bid. But i love the shallow wrecks like the city of washington. The hanan bell. Also known as mike's wreck and especially the ben would. They are teeming with fish life and are great places to do fish identification and surveys. You can also experience of great dives on elbow reef molasses reef and french reef another great shallow dive through the book spurring grove. Karl is christ of the abyss. Dry rocks you can grit some great photo opportunities there. The water temperatures in key largo range from the mid seventies in the winter months to the mid eighties in the peak of the summer. When i dove in april of two thousand and nineteen. I was pretty comfortable on the shallow reefs with my three millimeter wetsuit. Only wanna do to morning dives. You can free up your afternoons for some topside adventures. A trip to reef headquarters Is interesting or you can take a tour of the coral restoration foundation and just down. The road is the history of diving museum in l. morada. I was really looking forward to getting to the museum last year and hope that i can make it down there next april. Talk about the dining. While if you're staying at the courtyard on the marina you don't have to get in your car and drive someplace you can just scroll stroll over skippers doc right on the marina. They have some great conch chowder. There and if you want a burger or some pub food than walk a little bit further down to dr sharpies shark bite grill. You'll probably run into some of the dive staff there hanging out now. Another great place to eat is the pilot house and that's located right near the coral restoration foundation very close by and and if you're in the mood for pizza then upper crust pizza at mile marker one zero one point six. Just make sure it's not. Wednesday is their closed. We made that mistake. So as i wrap up this segment. If you've been diving in key largo. I hope that you will agree that it is really a cool place to dive. And if you've never been there. I would encourage you to consider putting a trip there on your counter. I regret having taken fourteen years between visits. I'm not gonna make that mistake again.

Guess she learn something new every day now. Here's some discouraging news out of grand cayman and it doesn't have to do with the covid nineteen pandemic but rather about another disease outbreak among coral the stony coral disease or sc td. According to an article in the came encompass an isolated area containing disease was spotted at life off a smith cove. And that's along the south west coast and that's not good. The came in department of environment also reported infected sites amal along grand cayman's east coast the now suspects that divers and boat operators be spreading it although scientists are still not exactly sure how stony coral tissue disease spreads. If you look at the outbreak map you get the feeling that it could be divers or boat. Operators there are new disinfecting guidelines for local divers. Not sure how these will translate to us when the caymans open back up again as if we didn't have enough to contend with with covid nineteen now it stony coral tissue disease and our dive gear every day. Now we're learning about more destinations for diving opening up around the world. One of these locations is bon air. There was an article on dive. News wire from the bon air tourism department.

Hopefully in the near future you'll be able to travel without restrictions if you're fully vaccinated and finally here on wet notes. I just saw that. Bob ballard has a new book out and it's titled into the deep and memoir from the man who found titanic a couple of years ago. We met doctor ballard at the sixty fifth boston.

The Invader -

"It's time for another installment of seahorn. It's still alive here on scuba shock radio and this time we're heading back to july thirtieth nineteen sixty for season three episode thirty titled the invader in this episode. Mike is on assignment to a small unnamed. Latin america country where his job is to train a new underwater demolition team in the opening underwater scenes. Mike is with two other divers and there are placing underwater charges. Mike says that in wartime the underwater soldier only has his blade and bundle of explosives. Well when the charges go off you see the divers being violently tossed about but they're okay. They were just far enough away from the concussion back on the boat. Mike tells us that he has started with twenty men but now he is down to their. Is thomas vegas a wealthy princeton graduate and paul ramirez better known as indio an orphan who is happy but can be serious as a barracuda but there is trouble ashore. The scene shifts to the office of the president day president they duran and he's being confronted by an opposition leader so scenario silvano who is calling for revolution against iran's tax bill. Mike confronts scenario storms out. Mike is worried about this little dictator but president duran assures in he was a soldier and all will be well now. We're back on the boat. Where mike still has his hands. Full with a rivalry between tomasz an indio underwater thomason indio get into a fight by training. Mike forces them to the surface. Thomas toes indio that if he kicks him again like that he'll cut his throat. Mike tells ended. They gotta learn to work together to now. Tomas asks to go sure to go on a date with dawn comes trouble. Speedboat approaches the argonaut with a colonel. Who tells them that. President duran has been abducted by solano and being held in an island. Four miles offshore. What can you do ask the kernel. We'll think of something. Mike replies give us until noon. And if you haven't heard from us by then you've never will. The next thing we see is tomasz on the radio and he is talking to survive at the fort. The revolutionary traitor to l. president. He tells them that there will be an underwater attack. Now as mike in dior getting ready their gear we see tomas sneaking a flare gun into his rig back underwater. The three divers are set for a long swim with patrol boats circling around. So mike takes the boys deep into the channel to create a diversion. Mike sends up a surface marker buoy with a time fused bomb on it when it goes off. The fort thinks it's a pto and savannah. Realizes mike nelson is on his way. President they durant says. Mike nelson is an extraordinary man to which ivano replies. He's an extraordinary gag. Man you see. The revolutionaries have set up a concrete and steel screen across the channel. The only way through is to blast but they wanna confused patrol boats and the floor so they set off a series of bombs in different locations while they blow up the screen. One two three bombs go off in the guards and savannah are confused with a concrete and steel screen blown apart. Mike leads the divers through just then tomasz takes off. Where's he going. He makes his way to the sea wall and is ready to fire off his flare gun to signal the four when mike jumped him they didn't tie tomasz to a floating rafts off the island and set off a smoke bomb again to confuse the revolutionaries mike and i had to the other side of the island. They're getting shallower and shallower into a mike. Pops his head up all clear and they get out of the water and ditched her scuba gear. The raft trick worked by tells indio and he tells them to keep them busy while he gets el presidente. Indio starts tossing grenades. all around. the guards are shooting at everything. Now we see.

Wet Notes 5-6-2021

"This is wet. Notes here on scooby. Shock radio for may six two thousand and twenty one. I want to start off today with a story. That is a bit of personal meaning to me. And that's a story about what some recreational divers found while diving out in hawaii. Awful and i. Now i have quite a few dives out there. Awful and i and these divers found some unexploded world war two era ordinance. They found two bombs. One was at seventy four feet and the other one was at ninety four feet. The divers immediately notified to hawaii division of aquatic research. Who went out to investigate it and confirmed it was unexploded ordinance the report indicated that the munitions were about three hundred yards offshore. The exact location wasn't disclosed when but it may be in the area of the first and second cathedrals again personal for me. Because i have probably about at least twenty. Five dives onto cathedrals as of now. There aren't any more updates and there was no mention on the divers website and they run many charters out to the site. Let's see where this goes. I recently checked out the four ocean blog to see if there was anything of interest will there was a lot but one thing did pique. My interest for ocean occasionally does a blog on plastics around the world. And that's where they identify articles or stories that talk about the plastic crisis facing the world. Now one article was from interesting engineering and it was written by deora as deamer and this was about plastic eating mushrooms. Yes certain types of fungi can ingest and eat plastic apparently in two thousand eleven some yale researchers discovered rare mushroom in the amazon forest and it was able to digest and break down plastics. One of the scenarios suggest that these plastic eating mushrooms could be placed at the bottom of landfills interesting over the years. There have been various successful experiments. So what's the holdup perhaps speed. It takes times for the mushrooms to eat and digest the plastic and there's also competition for other investment now. Here's a bit of disturbing news that i saw from dima apparently there's going to be a virtual meeting of the florida fish and wildlife conservation commission or dfw see on may twelfth and thirteenth one of the topics on may twelfth. I think it is a two. Our discussion is to review and update the goliath grouper. Now this review is to look at if they should allow a limited highly. Regulated harvest of the goliath grouper. Why well that's a really good question now if you go out to the f. w. website you'll be able to find a detailed Presentation on this review. Even if the science holds up and supports the harvest. I would have to ask if the enforcement is of a regulated harvest. Dean feels that. The economic value of the goliath grouper are better served without any harvest and continue the protection they currently have. Sos thousand island. Well what's that all about. Well for those of you are familiar with the saint lawrence seaway in the thousand island region. Sos stands for save ontario shipwreck thousand island chapter now. This was reported in scuba news. Sos thousand island wants to create an artificial reef off of brockville in canada. Why are they making such a bold proposal. Were there are three main objectives. I an artificial reef will reduce the pressure on the local historic wooden shipwrecks and then second. An artificial reef can preserve the maritime history of ships that had been destined for scrap and finally this effort will assist the local aquarium in promoting maritime heritage and discovery. This is still a long way off but there is some good news in that day of identified a ship that could be used and it is the former canadian coast. Guard vessel the c. c. g. s. mont. Mandy now this ship was built in one thousand nine hundred sixty three and it was decommissioned and sold in nineteen ninety nine. Let's see where this one goes. Well here's something that. I just saw from patty. I think it was on the patty pro blog. Patty women's dive day. Two thousand and twenty one is coming and the tagline on the blog was celebrate the connection between mandy and the ocean. This year's patty women's dive day is july seventeenth 2021. This event started six years ago in two thousand and fifteen and it was started as a way to encourage more female participation in sport scuba diving to date there have been over four thousand patty women's dive day events in over one hundred countries. I'm sure last year was a little tough to get events planned and executed safely this year. More places are opening and travel is picking up. Everyone can participate be on the lookout for patty women's dive day event in your local area or maybe even travel to a nice destination to participate and finally today. I thought i'd give everyone and update on traveling. To the bahamas. As of may first the bahamas ministry of health has released new guidelines for entry departure. I if you are fully vaccinated for covid nineteen that's two weeks from your final. Does you don't need a covid. Nineteen tests prior to entry. Nor do you need to fill out the daily health questionnaire or get a covert test. After your fifth day on the island. You'll still need to apply for the bahamas. Health visa prior to entry. And you still need to get a covert test before travelling back to the united states. Now we're heading to nassau a may twenty six th so these changes make things a whole lot simpler. Hopefully more countries will open up. Like the bahamas. Well that's it for wet notes on may six two thousand and twenty one here on scuba shack radio

"This is wet notes for april twenty third. Two thousand twenty one here on scuba shack radio. I up just after i recorded. The last episode president biden released his two thousand and twenty two budget. Well if you're a fan of the national oceanic and atmospheric administration or noah. You'll be happy in the budget. Proposal released on april ninth. The president proposed a record budget of six point. Nine billion dollars for knowing now. How does that compare well. This year knows budget is four point. Six billion wow. that's big increase. This budget really supports taking action. On climate change protecting marine mammals the ocean great lakes and coastal communities. If you recall the previous administration has proposed cutting knows budget only to have it restored by congress. Now this is just a first step in the budget proposal. It has a long way to go to get congressional approval. But i think it's a very good first step now. Here's something that's really interesting. I read this in the cayman compass online. It's about a grand cayman. Northside family found a message in a bottle. Yeah on easter. i think it was. The family was out walking on a remote part of the island. A place called the parrot sanctuary. I think this is on the east end. Well that's where patricia dacosta her family recovered an emerald colored bottle with a handwritten message inside the note said thrown into the ocean on six december. Two thousand and seventeen somewhere between the bahamas and florida. If you find this drop us a line and let us know where it ended up. Signed by darren and shannon from evansville illinois and it gave them their email address so patricia them with the news and now darrin shannon are planning to visit grand cayman at some point as for the bottle. The dacosta family's planning to put their own note in the same bottle and send it back out to see what an incredible journey. It's here the second quarter edition of the journal of diving history magazine. It arrived in the mail just after the last show. This latest additions cover story was written by chris. Cole and it is about the divers who worked on the edgewater disaster. It was one of the worst maritime disasters in us history. I'll leave it at that and you can do some of your own research but it was a really interesting article. There's also an interview in the edition. Done by michael newdow with dick rakowski and he's dubbed. The father of nighthawks again. Some really interesting stuff. I highly recommend that you take a look at the historical diving. Society's website if you become a member you'll get the journal mail to you every quarter a pleasant surprise in your mailbox. I received an email from a friend a few weeks ago with the subject line serenity so who can't use a little serenity how about serenity now well it turns out that my friend was asked by our son to watch him cameras for a school project. These live cams were from the monterey bay aquarium so i went to the link and it took me to their landing page for nine different cameras. I'm not going to list them all right now. But you can peek. In on their penguins. Sea otters were moon jellies. There's even a camera for monterey bay itself personally. I like to observe my sealife while diving but these live cams from monterey bay aquarium can fill in and provide that little bit of serenity. Now here's something interesting. That came in from shearwater. You know the makers of the dive computers. They have a contest. It's going to be starting up. In may called the spring shopping spree and the winner will get four thousand nine hundred ninety nine dollars shopping spree at the dive shop of their choice. And here's how it works if you purchase the shearwater in april or if you buy one in may you can register for the contest with their online portal with a proof of purchase. But you don't have to buy a computer to participate. You also be able to register by completing a short fifty word essay on why you like shearwater computers. The lucky winner will be selected at the end of may. And it's another great way to support your local dive shot. Thanks your water for doing this. And finally there was a short article from patty on april twentieth about their meeting with the maldivian government to confirm the protection for sharks. There was some speculation out there that the maldivian government might be lifting the shark fishing ban in their countries waters. Well this can't be good over ten years ago. Patty along with others helped to establish this current protection so the patty staff met with the moldavian ministry of fisheries marine reserves and agriculture's lead zaha wahid. Well here's some good news here at the meeting minister while he said that they were committed to sustainable and responsible management on april twentieth the ministry released a statement that said the maldives does not intend to permit a targeted shark. Fishing in the mouth. These great job. Patty in great job maldives for protecting these critical apex predators. Well that's it for wet notes. For

The Alcatraz Story

"It's time for another installment of sea hunt. It's still alive here on scuba shack radio. This time. we're going back to episode one of season two and it was titled the alcatraz story this episode premiered on january fourth nineteen fifty nine at the time. Alcatraz was still very much an operation as a prison and it did not close until march of nineteen sixty three. The alcatraz story starts off with a scene of several convicts breaking rocks on the cliffs of alcatraz when all of a sudden one of the convex Falls in and then you see him. Swim-down before surfacing when the guards fish him out but wait. There's a mysterious fishing boat. The olympia watching what's happening. The convict circling is arm as if he's signaling fishing boat the scene shifts to the boat and three guys say they need to find mike nelson. Now we're underwater with mike nelson and he's testing flares for company. When all of a sudden an anchor comes crashing down dangerously close to him and an a skin. Diver comes diving down. Mike is really mad. And he's ready to chew him out when he gets to the surface but they get to the surface in all the guys start apologizing and they say they've came a long way to see mike and mike ask them why to bury mitzi no. They introduced themselves as the brand brothers. Larry johnny and frank they claim to be abalone divers and need to to learn how to scuba dive so they can find the abalone. Mike advises them on the law. But they say hey there lotto buying brothers so he agrees to teach larry and johnny how to scuba dive for three hundred dollars. And we're going to start tomorrow morning at eight thirty. But mike tells them any of them goof off. It's over so the next morning they're out diving. Mike says they're easy to teach. He's going over the equipment the safety procedures in the buddy system underwater now. They're in triples doubles and singles tanks. Bit of everything after their first lesson which by the way lasted five hours underwater and they were below sixty feet might tells the brothers no more diving while he heads back to town jeep to get the tanks fill and he gives them a book on scuba diving. Do read larry tells mike okay teach will be good he had. That's not gonna happen. Mike returns to find the boat empty. And there's bubbles in the water. Larry johnny or diving again just franks shows up and mike and frank get into a fight before mike knocks him down gets into his gear and enters the water to retrieve the two brothers before they kill themselves. Mike finds them underwater. And it looks like they're doing something like the dive master gear exchange. Now they take off and mike goes in hot pursuit for some reason. Johnny turns around rips. Mike mask off. Mike has defined it. Put it on and clear it. Just in time to find larry running out of air. Mike grabs larry and buddy breathes with him to the surface now. Mike is really mad. Schools over another five minutes and all their problems would have been over. They'd be dead his advice. Don't play games with the ocean. The brothers gibb tell mike. They were just practicing. What was in the book. Mike gave them. Mike doesn't really believe them but they take off and as the boat depart mike find frank's wallet on the pier. Apparently he lost it. Doing to fight with mike. He's not frank brennan but frank bronson the plot thickens. Wonder if my god is three hundred dollars the scene now shifts to fisherman's warf and mike is getting the low down on the bronson brothers. They haven't been abalone fishermen for years and there's a fourth brother mark now mike looking for their boat but he spots it on often abandoned peer in oakland and decides that he needs to scuba dive out to see what's up. The board is empty. But before mike can get on board the three bronze brothers show up his only option. Hide under the boat when the engine starts. He grabbed a dangling. Bow-line and hitches a ride. They're up to no good. The pressure is tremendous as he hangs on an fears of the blades of the prop behind them. But the boat finally slows then stops. And larry johnny jump in on scuba and have an extra set a gear. What's going on. Mike surfaces and sees their right off alcatraz. It's two against one. Nothing new for mike nelson. He follows them down to some rocks underwater where they deploy a surface buoy. Then we see a convict one zero nine eight six. That would be mark bronson. He died into the water now. Mike gets it as he sees the convict getting into a wet suit. And putting on the gear. Mike shoots a flare off to signal. The guards on alcatraz hoping it works. Mike is now fully rigged mask wetsuit. Tank regulator weight belt and knife and their high tailing it off against a strong title current. But larry turns and he spots mike. He's going to fight a rearguard action while johnny and markswoman. It's a knife fight. And it's a good one larry's tough clever and slippery but might get behind. Him cuts his air hose and brings him to the surface. And that's where we see. Mike's knife into larry's first stage. The flare did its job. And there's a patrol boat from the island coming on the scene that's one bronson in the bag on the boat. They followed the brothers bubbles and when they catch up mike dies back in lights off a flare and pokes it at the brothers and another massive underwater fight breaks out mike pulls off marks masks shuts air off and shoves him johnny he then puts johnny in a stranglehold and brings the two brothers to the surface. Mike has thwarted escape attempt. Larry says on the boat. It was a pretty good scheme. Yeah mike doesn't think so. Wow this first. Episode new year was jam packed with some great underwater fight scenes. I guess they really wanted to get everyone excited about the show again. And you most definitely will recognize johnny bronson. That was leonard. Nimoy yes mr spock. He shows up again. So that's the alcatraz story from nineteen fifty-nine the first episode of season. Two of seon. Hope you enjoyed it. I'll be back again soon with another installment of seon. It's still alive here on scuba shack radio.

Wet Notes - 4-9-21

"This is wet notes here scuba shock radio for april ninth two thousand and twenty one first up today. I'd like to give you an update on new netflix. Documentary see spiracy. You might recall that. I introduced you to this film in a previous segment of wet notes. Well it did premiere on netflix's advertised. And i had a chance to watch. She spiracy a couple of weeks ago. The film is eighty nine minutes long and it can be captivating and controversial. Like i said this is certainly raising a great deal controversy especially as it relates to sustainable seafood and fishing. There's a couple of organizations that they called out into spiracy earth island institute and the marine stewardship council actually marine stewardship council issued a response on their website within days of the premier and every day. I see something more coming out related to the controversy. But i encourage you to watch the film and then decide for yourself about what it is saying like. I said lots of controversy. That's spiracy on net flicks now. Here's something that. I found really interesting. I came across an article that talked about how scientists are using thin wales to map out what lies beneath the sea floor. Now according to to seismologists vaclav kina from the czech academy in prague and john nab elec of oregon state university in corvallis oregon the song of the fin. Whales are loud enough to penetrate the earth's crust and revealed deep structures. I guess they have a network of fifty four bottomed size meter seismometers that the tech sound waves traveling through the ground and they picked up the of whales as they were passing by. Now they have a one hundred and eighty nine decibels song and that song can last from two and a half to five hours as they did more analysis they were able to map the underlying rock structures. According to these guys this is just as effective as those air cannons that are polluting the ocean with all that noise how practical this is yet to be seen. But you've gotta admit it is interesting. Now here's an update on the lectured aluminum tanks situation. You might recall back at the end of february. I told you about luxembourg Decision to exit the aluminum tank business and that they were looking to sell their plants in the us and the uk more. Here's some good news. Metal impact out of elk grove village in illinois is acquiring the graham north carolina luxembourg cylinder plant metal impact is no stranger to scuba tank business. They've been around since nineteen fifty nine and in two thousand fourteen. They purchase worthington. Aluminum cylinders has been providing aluminum scuba tanks to excess scuba and see pearls for a number of years. We've got quite a few from excess scuba over the past couple of years and so we're pretty familiar with metal impacts. This is some good news for the. Us aluminum Scuba tank supply chain. There's absolutely no doubt that. The pandemic has had a dramatic impact on the scuba industry. But i guess it's not all bad news if you happen to be in the right place and it seems that hawaii is those right places especially for new diver certifications. There's a recent article in scuba diving magazine. Titled more hawaiians getting certified than before the pandemic turns out that even though the travel has been restricted to and from the islands more locals are turning to scuba aloha scuba on awad who had reported a one hundred and twenty percent increase in new diver certifications. In two thousand and twenty. They went from twenty seven in two thousand and nineteen to eighty three in two thousand and twenty spurred by whole families going for they're open water certification with some great diving. It certainly makes sense to mask up and dive in our aloha state. Last week i was trying to see if the ocean based climate solutions act of two thousand and twenty was being introduced in this session of congress. Well no update on that yet but i did come across something very interesting. There is a house select committee on the climate crisis now. This committee was created during the one hundred sixteenth congress. That was the last one so it hasn't been around long. But they did produce a climate action plan of two thousand twenty. And that's called the congressional action plan for a clean energy economy and a healthy resilient and just america committee is chaired by representative. Kathy castor from florida and the ranking chair is representative garrett graves from louisiana now. I watched their organizing meeting from march nineteenth. Let's say there's just a little bit of difference on the ideas of how to approach In the approaches in making the us carbon zero by two thousand fifty but as representative castor stated. It's time to turn recommendations into policy. Now i'll be tracking our actions and keep you updated here and finally you might recall. Last year the uss bonham rashard an eight hundred forty four foot long and fibia assault ship burned out of control for five days. Now that was in san diego california. But now senator. Marco rubio from florida is proposing that the ship be used to create an artificial reef down in florida little bit of background. The navy did some cost analysis On what it would take to restore the ship to operational status an estimated that that would be somewhere between two point. Five and three point five billion dollars but the cost to decommission and scrap the bonham rashard would be about thirty million dollars. Senator rubio didn't provide any details on where the ship might be sunk and be become an artificial reef but he did say that it could be done for less than thirty million dollars to scrap the ship. This word Happened it would be. We'll keep an eye on it and see where it goes. Fingers crossed that will have another artificial reef down in florida. Something that big to dive on. Well that's it for this installment of wet notes for april ninth. Two thousand and twenty

"It's time for another installment of on it. Store live here on scuba shack radio. And this time we're going back to season one episode two titled flooded mine flooded mine the premiered on january eleventh nineteen fifty eight. The show opens up with mike scuba diving. And there's a woman who is free diving with them. They're searching for a guitarfish from marineland of the pacific and that's when they encounter a c line who might calls a natural clown. He then says that he will be faced with a very different situation. Fifteen hundred miles inland where he's been called to investigate a mine. Explosion that has flooded the tunnels in the next scene. Mike is at the mine and he's talking to the head of the mind. Mr graham mr graham explains that the explosion killed thirty miners and he needs mike to determine the extent of the flooding. Mike tells mr graham that he can go thousand yards into the tunnel with his cylinder. Graham asks him what it's going to cost. Mike says we'll talk about that later. Now mr graham calls in bill henderson. Who's going to help mike. Bill tells graham that he sorry about his boy who was killed in an explosion. The scene shifts to mike being lowered into the mine in his full scuba gear with miner's helmet on he says he's been all seven seas on six continents but has never been in a mind before and never wants to be in want again as bill and mike or making their way through the mine. Bill tells mike not to touch anything. It's a tight squeeze and mike accidentally kicks a beam. That causes a bit of a cave-in. Well they finally make it to the water mike. Mike looks at his watch. And it says three twenty and he tells bill that he has forty minutes of air. Bill asks mike. What can you do if he doesn't make it back in time to which mike replies. Nothing bill tells mike. He's got a dangerous job now. Under the murky water. Mike is feeling his way along slowly carefully when he hears some noises. He doesn't know exactly what what they are but he sees a light at the surface and when he surfaces up he discovers to miners trapped in an air pocket barely breathing. Mike shoves the regulator in their mouth and smacks them starts yelling at them to breathe now the dilemma. How to get them out. There's no time to go back for another long. He can only take one out but who they draw. Rocks smallest rock stays the guy. Mike is taking out. Can't swim and he needs wait. So they load his pants with rocks mic shows. Them how to buddy breathe gives him as masks and off they go but not for long. The minor panics. Takes mike's knife and starts to fight with them. Mike drops might drops his light and gets to panic. Diver back to the air pocket. Mike goes back down to get his late and then he comes up and tells the minor to get some rocks. He's taken him out. This time keeps his mask and things go smoothly. We then see bill looking at his watch. It's four pm. Whereas mike suddenly bill sees the light. And mike comes up with the minor. It's been workman. Mike needs to go back but he doesn't have enough air and there's not enough time to go out in the mind for another tank. What can they do. Just an mike spots a welding torch where there's a torch there's oxygen tank has the same valve as regulator. What luck but mike need some tools to complete the rig now. He needs to go back down underwater To retrieve a toolbox he does and hooks up his regulator and carries the o. Two tank with them as he heads back breathing welding oxygen. Mike reaches the air pocket and finds the second minor limp. But not dead. He gives him the regulator and the minor starts to revive. He tells. Mikey sorry that he was scared. Mike says that's okay. You just didn't have enough oxygen this time. Mike says that things went a lot better than they made it out. We never did get the name of that panic minor nor did we ever find out what might charge mr graham for those of us of a certain age or watch a lot of old time television. You might recognize bill henderson. That's hank patterson who played fragile. Arnold the pigs. Dad on greenacres the episode sort of ended abruptly when when it switches to lloyd bridges on his boat telling us that three fifths of the planet is covered by sea. And how little we know so join us as we go below with si-hun as we've seen in many si-hun adventures. You never know where mike nelson will be going diving next.

"That's the biggest advantage. I see of travel is that it is such an educational opportunity for children and it reinforces what they learn in the school systems hundred percent very well said and if i may add to this something that i think most parents are not really aware of our additional benefits that come out from traveling with your children so for example we all know or suspect that they are learning about the world as they travel through it which certainly was the case when we did it with our children. You know those cultural differences relieve impression and now so many things but there is also not only they exploring the world outside of themselves but unbeknownst to them. They're really learning about themselves. They're learning life skills. They're developing not just new perspectives but discovering personal interests. That that's this interesting. Byproduct of getting your kids out of their comfort zone and from what's familiar now. That's what travel affords Everybody not just children but particularly children who are going through. Whether it's adolescence are changes that are going on in their lives. All of this mixed together with this discovery about themselves through what they're seeing externally is i wasn't aware of When we embarked our trip and really realized. When i got back it's no surprise at my older son is now twenty three years old. Got his first job. Out of college at spacex he developed this love and appreciation for not just photography. that's a life skill. He learned while he was driving but an appreciation for our nautical engineering and space rocketry. That came out of visiting places like the kennedy space center and so forth so it could lead to be really anything but this gives children opportunity to discover themselves without the kind of influence of their peers and and you know kind of the day to day struggles that they have is young people. I hope the audience out there really takes this to heart. Maybe in some way practices on their own because to be aware of it will really enhance the experience. I think without being no intentional about it. 'cause it should just it just kind of happens and that's where the magic is and that's why go to career in trying to promote All the things that families can do together not just a theme park beach the case. It's some we talked about. But you know there's so many great ships one mention For example dude ranches very popular with the multi gen skipped gen circles if it's a chance to get outdoors and You can not just ride horses by go fly fishing and you'll quality time the cookout or you know by the by the can fire. You know making a sure or young burning marshmallows. Toasted marshmallows students attended arnhem but You know these are. There's so many things that i know. Parents grandparents alike will take the time to research. Discover not to put a plug for family travel association that i that i founded seven years ago but family travel dot org. I urge here audience. Check it out and maybe get some ideas and look at things that you never thought were even possible. Scuba diving with with children is is a possibility. I've gone on dive trips all around the world with my kids and other families ten years ago. I didn't think that was even remotely possible. I didn't realize that a ten year old could certify. Get their certification. I thought it would have been at least in the teens. If not a little older but anyway there's so much out there but as we kind of started with its finding that that kind of common ground that so important one planning something like this you know. What are some of the things that everyone in the family likes to do. And one last thing a common mistake that's also made when it comes to planning travel With families and certainly with multi jan groups is that they don't consider the activities before the destination in other words. People said okay. Where do you wanna go. And let's say for the sake of argument. Someone says i want to go to hawaii and allies. Great were really. What hawaii is is destination with beaches resorts things like diving as i mentioned some cultural experiences but if you pick the destination i you limit yourself to that destination offers instead. Start with all. I wanna go. Sailing are oh. I wanna beach vacation decide on the activity then. Your geography is much larger than you can choose from a greater variety not to mention expenses. Let's say everyone decides to go to hawaii but some people live in florida You know those are all factors so pick the activities. I the destination second. I hope you enjoy today's episode of the adventures with remy.
